“We had an excellent holiday. Service given by John Stanley was exceptional before, during and after our tour. We are regular visitors to Costa Rica and no doubt will return again. We can certainly recommend the Latin America Travel Company and will definitely travel with them again. Big THANK YOU to John Stanley for his personal attention.”
