Gema is great. Hope she's available the next time we plan a trip! She was so helpful and patient as we worked through the many, many options there were to choose from
Hi, I'm Gema Cantillano

I am a dreamer and from a very young age I started dreaming about traveling worldwide to help others. During my childhood I lived in Monteverde. I enjoyed the chilly weather of my hometown and the unbeatable sunsets overlooking the Nicoya Peninsula. I studied Ecological Tourism while in high school. It was a great experience—I learned the importance of natural ecosystems and traveled to several attractions in our country, including the Barra Honda Caves, Rincón de La Vieja National Park, and a Bribri indigenous village. I've traveled all over the country and have visited top destinations such as Playa Hermosa, Tamarindo, Playa Avellana, Playa Negra, Samara, Mal País-Santa Teresa, Montezuma, Jacó, Manuel Antonio, Dominical, Uvita, Drake Bay, and Puerto Jiménez. I completed a three-month internship at the Monteverde Chamber of Tourism, where I was able to interact with visitors and business representatives. It was the first step to what has been a wonderful career. I began working for Anywhere Costa Rica in 2006. Interacting with people and helping them to discover the wonders of our country is incredible; I truly enjoy what I do for living. My job is varied and includes everything from writing emails about Costa Rica to orchestrating environmental projects for our staff. My family is my priority. We live five-minutes from downtown La Fortuna in a very safe and tranquil neighborhood. I live with my significant other, my one-year-old daughter Fiorella, and our pets Cookie and Blue. The simple things in life make me happy: spending time with my daughter, playing with my niece and nephews, chatting with my sisters, and baking cakes.
Excellent experience! Gema and her colleagues was very friendly and provided us with all the information needed. She made us feel comfortable and at ease. We look forward to working with her again on our next trip.
Gema, thanks for your help! It was a well planned fun trip! She is the best I have worked with!
Gema was the best!! She was helpful, responsive, knowledgeable and attententive to every need we had.
Thank you, Gema! You did great.
Thank you Gema for helping me plan a wonderful vacation. Your suggestions on hotels & tours were great! My family enjoyed everything.
Gema was great! She was very quick and helpful.
Gema over-performed and delivered superb customer service. We can't thank her enough! Thank you!!!!!!!
I wish I could hug Gema! She was so incredibly helpful; I had a question while I was on vacation in Costa Rica and she emailed me back within two hours! She was there from day one making my vacation something I could enjoy and not something to worry about.
I couldn't have planned this trip better on my own. Gema was ALWAYS accommodating and really listened to what I wanted. Therefore, we had a perfect trip that was more than we had hoped for. At first I was a little worried that there would be too much driving involved since we were going to two different cities that were further apart, but I am SO GLAD she recommended that we stay in two different areas. We really got to see two different versions and climates of Costa Rica and for that we are grateful. Gema was always honest with me and answered all of my questions no matter how small. Everything was planned perfectly and we had no trouble whatsoever with our reservations for hotels and excursions. She made this trip so easy by narrowing things down for us and helping pick the best things. We'd recommend her to anyone we know is planning a trip to Costa Rica. Thank you Gema for a truly unforgettable vacation. If we are ever lucky enough to go back to Costa Rica I'll look you up and use you and Anywhere Costa Rica again without hesitation.
Fantastic! Quick to respond to many questions. Logistics were flawless.
Gema was a pleasure to work and recommended and matched our activity interests perfectly with the best vendors.

Gema was amazing, so helpful and understanding.
A tool is nothing without the human being ...Gema was always so kind, resposive, patient and passionate. Working with Gema was like working with a friend! Many thanks to you for everything! We will come back to work with you again! :-)
It was a pleasure to work with Gema, she was so patient and resourceful. She has excellent communication skills and command of the English language, which made it so easy to plan. I highly recommend her as a travel agent
Gema is great! She was always positive and professional, even when I changed my mind several times. She was also very good about letting me know that I was going to be charged for two people on the shuttle instead of one unless more people scheduled the same route. There were no surprizes from her.
Gema was incredibly helpful and a delight to deal with. No problem was too much (and we asked for a lot of changes!) - she did everything in her power to accommodate our requests, suggest alternatives and ensure we were happy.
Gema is a delight to work with. Always responded very quickly and correctly. Wonderful experience.
Gema was lovely, very helpful, polite, and attentive :)
