kayaking Drake Bay“If you’re looking for a reliable, attentive Costa Rican tour planner to provide quality trips for your clients or members, I can recommend none other than TerriPeterson and Pizotes Adventure Tours.   Terri has been designing truly memorable and very affordable tours for Club Carefree 50 members since 2003.  Her love and knowledge of Costa Rica’s wildlife and its people helps her at selecting the perfect comfortable, safe and diverse destinations and activities that exceed all expectations for adventure, wildlife viewing, exploring, relaxation, and fun.   Each day is better than the day before!

Terri is easy to work with in planning our trips and it is a joy to have her personally accompany the group on our tours.    She’s enthusiastic, engaging and informative with the travelers and helps them get the most out of their experience.  We especially appreciate the community service projects she coordinates for the groups.   It gives our members a sense of belonging instead of just visiting.

Creating the perfect group tour is not just a job for Terri.  It has become a passion fulfilled to share the glorious beaches, volcanoes, mountains, rivers, birds, food, traditions, and delightful people of her new home.   It shows in her enthusiasm in creating the best tour she can.   I would consider working with no one else on our future travels to Costa Rica.”

La Paz Waterfall Gardens tour”My favorite things were the Monteverde cloud forest (the Cloud Forest Inn was a wonderful place to stay, and the nature walk guides were the best), Playa Hermosa (the Hotel Velero was great, and so was the beach), and La Paz Waterfall Gardens (outstanding displays and collections and scenery). And of course Terri is my favorite tour guide!”

Birding tour”I loved our time at Selva Verde. Having the jungle all around us, hearing the insects and frogs all night, the birds and monkeys waking us up every morning, practically stepping on hopping poison dart frogs … It all was other-worldly—as was the night-time rumbling of Arenal volcano! I never expected to see so many different birds and animals, like the toucans, sloth, and macaws.”
