Costa Rica, Cuba, Galapagos and Ecuadorian Amazon Lodge. We had planned the trip around wildlife viewing plus a Cuban experience. The wildlife in Costa Rica, particularly birds, was outstanding. Cuba lived up to expectations with great music, awesome cars and fascinating history. As Darwin enthusiasts Galápagos Islands was all we expected and still managed to surprise on a daily basis. Four nights in the Amazon at Napo Lodge was a great finale to an outstanding holiday.
Fabulous trip with surprises, contrasts, wildlife and culture at every turn – and great food and music! Loved every minute of it even though it was hot, hot, hot!!

This was an excellent and well organised trip and we had a great time. The variety of plant and animal life in this part of the world especially Costa Rica is amazing although you need patience because of course the animals in the National Parks are not waiting to be photographed. Special thanks to our guide Janet who worked hard for the group. We would recommend that you insist on having her for your tour leader for this trip because English is her first language so it was easy to discuss complicated matters and share subtle jokes. We appreciated her invitation to visit her home and meet the family horses at Monteverde.
We have now done five trips with SET, which is a great indication of what we think of them. The trips have all been well planned and organized. Their leaders are carefully chosen, are friendly, knowledgeable and efficient and a lot of fun. We cannot speak more highly of Silvana, Nick and the team, and have no hesitation in recommending SET for a memorable overseas experience.
