Frequently Asked Questions
Who should come on this trip?
"Let's Eat Costa Rica" is designed for adventurous travelers that love having fun, meeting new people and eating delicious food. The group aspect of the trip is designed to inject human connection and to amplify the laughs as we share our table and meals with amazing people.
This trip is suited for anyone that's never been to Latin America but wants to get a true inside view into Costa Rica's culture and food.
Who should not come on this trip?
If you don't like humans, sun, beaches, rain, cute rainforest animals, mountains, food, light outdoor adventures and activities similar to hiking, surfing and yoga then this trip might not be suited for you. Additionally if letting go of control and experiencing a blind-itinerary adventure makes you feel queasy then we suggest you pass.
What level of physical activity is required for this Dreamcatchers trip?
Outdoor activities are a very important part of our trips. Exercise helps open up our souls, detox and relax. We will be always moving our bodies but all our trips are balanced out so that no day is too demanding. It's highly unlikely that we are going to over-do any activity because my philosophy is that exercise should always be in moderation. I'd rather do a small morning hike followed by a great lunch and an afternoon at the beach than simply hiking all day OR spending the entire day at the beach. Combining exercise and relaxation is like mixing a good cocktail and that's what my job is all about, I will push your bodies just enough to feel good and alive, but never where it becomes frustrating. We're not in Costa Rica to work out, but snorkeling, horseback riding, and white water rafting all are great ways to move our bodies.
This trip will involve intermediate physical activities. If you have any doubts about whether or not you can do the activities of each trip, just contact me and we'll figure it out without giving away what we'll be doing.
Expect to engage in outdoor activities like yoga, canopying, hiking, snorkeling, horseback riding, surfing and white-water rafting.

Yes. the rhythm of the trip allows for some free time each day to chill, nap, call home, or do anything you please.
I have food and dietary restrictions, am I going to be ok?
Yes. Prior to the trip we'll be collecting your dietary preferences and restrictions.
Will I be able to connect with my phone?
Yes. Costa Rica has a strong mobile network and most phones will have coverage even in the most remotes part we'll visit. In addition to that most or all of the places we'll be staying will have wifi. We'll ensure you have connectivity most of the time.
Do I need to know Spanish?
Not at all! You'll be in the company of two guides and a chef that are all fluent in English and Spanish. In addition, a lot of people speak English in Costa Rica. By the end of the trip however, we expect you'll know many new words!
Pipa = Coconut in Costa Rica. Vamos a tomar muchas pipas frias en la playa! We're going to drink a lot of cold coconut water at the beach!
What will a trip with The Dreamcatchers really be like?
The reason I don't show itineraries is because traveling with The Dreamcatchers is about experiencing the present moment in it's purest form and letting go. You won't understand just how much energy I put into designing each trip until you are there. I want you to take the leap of trust, because and only if you do so, will you be ready to experience everything that I'm about to show you.
I like to over deliver in everything I do. So from the moment you land until it's time to go back home, I'll be doing my very best to exceed whatever vision you have of this trip.
I'm very good at reading the energy levels of a group and fine tuning the experience on the go. When the group needs rest, I will secretly modify the schedule to allow for that, when the group needs fun, I'll find a way to add that into the day. A trip with The Dreamcatchers, is essentially a moving wedding party.
What is our transportation like?
We will be traveling on the awesome deluxe Dreamcatchers bus (AKA The DreamMachine). It's got great comfortable seating, air conditioner, good music, snacks, and Javier our full-time professional driver.
We'll be driving leisurely and making lots of cool pitstops along the way.
What kind of gear do I need for this trip?
A lot! From specific shoes to pocketknives. We will be providing all our guests with detailed list of gear for each specific trip. I will be very specific about what you need so you won't need to worry about being under or over packed.
How is your all inclusive policy?
We want to minimize the amount of times you reach for cash. All hotels and accommodations, meals, tours, outdoor activities, bus snacks, fruit, and water, will all be included.
What happens when I arrive in Costa Rica?
We will personally be there to pick all our guests at the airport and whisk you off on the adventure. At the conclusion of the trip we will also drop off all our guests at the airport. We'll always be there taking good care of you.
What's the weather like?
The temperature will vary drastically depending on where we are, ranging from high 80's (30° Celcius) in the beach, to a cool 65 in the high altitudes of the mountains (18°).
