Costa Rica 2022

Fabulous adventure which our 17 year old son said was the best family holiday ever. Everything you could ask for from travelling to a far flung place - abundant wildlife , we were practically tripping over iguanas , monkeys and sloths, beautiful countryside from rainforests to volcanos to beaches and plenty of excitement in between with white water rafting , rapelling and zip wiring. We are now Costa Rica’s biggest fans recommending it to anyone who’ll listen. Thank you for organising such a packed itinerary which still allowed us freedom to explore and worked so smoothly. I shall never forget the howler monkeys calling at 5 am in the trees outside our lodges while the monsoon rain pounded on the roofs and the thunder crashed all around us. Thrilling .

Komodo Sea Kayaking Adventure

Thank you Pioneer Expeditions for the most amazing adventure! I was a bit nervous traveling out to Indonesia on my own, however felt completely able to relax and enjoy my trip once I was in the presence of your local team who went above and beyond to look after me.

The kayaking trip itself was truly spectacular. It was my first time embarking a kayaking adventure like this and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The boat team were all so kind and friendly, always giving a helping hand. Our guide Flori was hugely knowledgeable and my hero when I dropped my camera in the sea (twice)!! A few highlights for me would be the fantastic supply of fresh food on the boat, spotting sea turtles snorkelling, having dolphins swim right next to the boat and close encounters with the Komodo Dragons.

As a younger individual who’s just beginning to explore the world, I couldn’t recommend this trip enough for a unique experience off the beaten track!


I just wanted to thank you for an amazing two weeks in Costa Rica! We loved it. It was all so well organised and every trip we did offered an exciting new adventure. Every one of our guides were hugely knowledgeable and made sure each excursion was the best possible experience for all of us.

We travelled with a nine and six year old and I can truly say it was the best holiday any of us has ever had. From the initial planning... followed by the two year wait to travel due to Covid... Pioneer Expeditions have been amazing at keeping us informed and ensuring each element of our holiday was truly memorable.

Thank you!!
