Voices From Traveler Project Visits

Voices from traveler project visits:

"Thanks to VSocial, we got an unique insights into the authentic local life. We were particularly pleased that the entire community profited from the commitment 'Roland P., viventura passenger (Capachica)

"The ambience was great The community based tourism accommodation and the local food was very good! Especially the exchange with the local people was fascinating and the local people all very nice." Bodo S,viventura passenger (Shandia Lodge)

"Immersion in the rural community of Zapotal will remain for me one of the moving memories of the tour! was touched by the direct, simple and warm welcome of the women upon our arrival and the energy deployed by our host, in addition to his work, to offer us very good breakfast and dinner. I was admiring Betty who fought to set up this community, the farm, the vegetable garden that she introduced us to. Amazing woman who refused a mandate as a member of Parliament for not being recovered. The cooking class with her was full of joy. At no time were we considered as tourists who came in curious. I discovered their work, their living conditions, in a spirit of sharing, the farewells were filled with emotion and I hope that this beautiful community experience will last." Nicole N., puraventura passenger (Zapotal, costa Rica)

"Living in rural part of France, we knew life near animals and in contact with nature. But sharing it with such authenticity and simplicity delighted us. Walking through the door of a house and witnessing the daily life of a Costa Moan family in this remote and mountainous region opened our eyes to another facet of the country and the living conditions of part of its population. The community is self-sufficient, develops ecological wastewater treatment systems, produces energy, and recycles its waste... A great lesson in respect for the environment! What I liked: when my son stayed at Betchys farm to help him with the evening milking and she kindly made a video and photos of that moment" Marlene B, puraventura passenger (Zapotal, Costa Rica)
