This was one of the greatest comments we have ever received:
Dear Suresh and Christine,
Betty Ann and I have now settled back into life in Northern Ontario.
I wanted to write to first THANK YOU so much for hosting us through a
series of your adventures there in La Fortuna. We were most impressed
with your operation: what you have accomplished and built is so
comprehensive, varied and well organized. Your staff are nothing
short of fabulous. They went out of their way to make people feel
We saw a great respect from you to your employees. You have supported the community by training and hiring local people to develop new skills and work in an area that they want to. You have altered the entire community for the better. Personally, we felt that Desafio was one of the best examples of community economic development we saw in Costa Rica.

Hi Marielos and everyone at Desafio,
Sally and I had a great Arenal and Costa Rica trip in June -- and Desafio made it all possible.
Please share our thank you with everyone at your great company.
You scheduled all our activities, suggested the Hotel where we stayed, and Desafio provided all the transportation, trips and guides while we were in Costa Rica.
We're very glad we found you because everything about the trip was wonderful. We had many fantastic experiences on Desafio's many great trips and activities.
We've already told others how wonderful you are, and look forward to giving you glowing recommendations for years to come.
Thank you again, and all the best of luck on your continued success,
Dan & Sally

Costa Rica Mountain Biking – Desafio Adventure Company
“This Mt biking is very beautiful and guides are nice.” Stephanie. 28 December.
“Everything was great. The best thing about the tour is that I was really challenged and I went further on the Mnt Bike than I ever would have on my own. Prior to leaving Andre took the time to explain the theory of how to bike which way great for me because I have ridden a bike before, but not with much skill.
Andre way also careful to plan the trip a the appropriate level for the participants. I was quite slow a times and he did not make me feel like I was holding back the group.
He is one of the best guides. I have had a many trips and I will tell people to come to Desafio and ask for Andre.” Dena Singletoo. 8 January 2009.
