Back from our vacation in Guatemala,I have to declare that we are most satisfied with service received and we are most grateful with your job.Everything happened according to our expectations. I am recommending Tropical Discovery to friends and relatives. Many thanks.
We had a wonderful time in Guatemala, which we found to be a truly interesting destination. The arrangements made by Tropical Discovery were impecabble. Hotels, transfers, drivers, all as promised, reliable and very high standard. We were very pleased with the service. Yes, you can use the comments. Thanks again.
With a few exceptions everything went very smooth. The minor hiccups would be the check in at The Hotel Panama, the fact that Coppa airlines lost our reservation and didn’t want to let us get on the plane (nothing to do with Tropical Discovery…

My travels were good in Honduras. Your service exceeded my expectations and the driver was waiting for us upon arrival in San pedro sula and drove us in a safe and timely fashion to la ceiba. Everything went according to schedule and I would recommend service.

My friends enjoyed every minute of their trip. The hotels were perfect and they almost died from exhaustion on the last day of their trip trying to climb the Volcano..
My recent trip to the Peten was absolutely heavenly. It was a complete break from all of the pressures of the modern world…..total immersion in the natural splendor of the jungle and the mystery of the Mayan ruins…
Many thanks for your e-mail and I apologize for the delay, but we have just returned home and I am now back to the Office. I really appreciate you are getting back to me…
Hello…I hope that all is well with you! On my end, I think that I have just settled back into the pace and rythm of Trinidad. It’s quite hot here now, yet almost amazing to think that after spending only a week in Guatemala…
Thank you for your email enquiring how we enjoyed our vacation on Ambergris Caye. It was very nice. The resort was just as described on the website, the staff were very nice and helpful and the setting was gorgeous.
The restaurant is indeed excellent and we saw that many people came by boat from other resorts to dine there. We enjoyed every meal that we had there. We would definitely return with other members of our family and next time would go for one of the bigger places, such as Jaguar as we like a lot of space. All in all a very successful stay. Kind Regards,
We had an absolutely wonderful time in Costa Rica! All of our drivers were super knowledgeable and friendly, making a few stops along longer rides for restaurants and town walkthroughs. Our accomodations at San Jose, Arenal, and Manuel Antonio were excellent and every effort was made to make our stay all the more enjoyable. We would go back in a second. Thanks for everything!
My trip was perfect! It wasn’t my first visit to Tikal. I wanted to take a friend to see the Mayan ruins and eat exotic food. He’s a very famous DJ and I didn’t want anything to go wrong…
My trip to Guatemala far exceeded all expectations! I want to thank you for all your help in arranging everything. I really had a great time. Since this was my first trip to Central America I was a little unsure …
Our trip to Antigua, Guatemala was fantastic. We only booked the transfers and hotel with Tropical Discovery, but they were great. Good cars/drivers and our hotel, Hotel Encantada, was wonderful. I would recommend both Tropical Discovery and our hotel to all. As for Antigua, it was great to be there during the Easter period, but I am not sure it would have the same impact at any other time of year. And yes, you have permission to publish my comments.
