Fue una experiencia única e inolvidable. Me llevo gratos recuerdos.
By Leslie Joan T for 4 Elements Retreat on 10 Aug, 2021
Our journey to find a Costa Rican wedding location took us coast to coast across the country. What could have potentially caused major set backs like; booking hotel accommodations, organizing which days to travel and allowing ample time to navigate the Costa Rican roadways, was actually seamless with the help of Emilio and Stephanie from Il Viaggio Travel. They took care of EVERYTHING for us and felt like we had our hands held the entire journey. Our experience would have been completely different, potentially disastrous, if I had tried to book everything myself online. With their help, we got to truly relax and enjoy the beautiful country. I feel, we also got to stay in some of the best hotels in Costa Rica and got some extra VIP treatment thanks to them! So save yourself the trouble and hand all the details over to the incredible professionals at Il Viaggio. From the bottom of our hearts, Thank you Emilio & Stephanie! We so appreciate all the work you did for us. Pura Vida Forever! -Brian & Christina

This was by far one of the best tours I’ve experienced. The accommodations were excellent and the food superb. Our guide was so knowledgeable and fun. We plan to see a different part of Costa Ruca next year using the same guide and travel agency.
By Shelley W for Shelly and friends on 26 Jun, 2021
If I could, I would give 10 stars for our trip! First, Stephanie with Il Viaggio Travel did an amazing job putting the entire trip together for us, through Julie Gorny with Travel Adventures & Tours in Chicago, Ill. Of course, there were a couple glitches prior to and during our trip, but everything was handled asap and very professionally! Thank you Stephanie! Second, we had a driver for our first 5 days and also our transfer to the airport for our flight home. His name is Juvenal Acuna and he was the best driver/tour guide that I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He transported us between 3 different hotels, the distance between the first & second hotel was 3hrs and the distance between the second and third was 4hrs, and numerous excursions that we did in-between. He made sure that we knew what clothing to wear for the different excursions, and he was our guide for the hanging bridges. We learned so much about Costa Rica from him! When he dropped us off at the airport, he told us that we needed to come back and see the areas of the country that we hadn't seen and that we always had a friend in Costa Rica, and his name is Juvenal. We absolutely loved everything we did and everything we saw. I think my favorite area was around Arenal Volcano! COSTA RICA is a beautiful country, and God willing, I will return one day!
By Linda E for linda and grandchild on 25 Jun, 2021
Natalia from Il Viaggio was amazing! She was so helpful and responsive to all of my questions beforehand and during our trip! We enjoyed everything about our 4 days in which we used Il Viaggio! Our only regret was not having time to use them for our whole trip! Now I need to return to Costa Rica to finish out the experience with them! Thank you, Natalia and Il Viaggio!
