Pablo: I have traveled around the world but have never come across a host how was so hospitable and helpful. You have gone out of your way to make us comfortable. Can't forget that.
Hi, I'm Pablo Brenes
1-(888) 456-3212 Ext:180
I’ve been working in tourism for over fifteen years. I started out as a clerk in a souvenir shop, and then became a waiter, a bartender, and receptionist. I also worked in a coffee shop, so it’s no surprise that I make the best coffee in our office. I was born and raised in San José. During my childhood, my father worked as a truck driver, and I was often his co-pilot. These experiences imparted a love for the rural areas of Costa Rica and are a significant reason why I decided to move to Monteverde, which is where I lived for many years. Nowadays I live in La Fortuna with my wife and son. We have four dogs—Yogui, Homer, Jack, and Troy. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, working in the garden, walking in the park, eating ice cream, and going out to dinner. My favorite food is casados with fish and I love natural drinks that are infused with watermelon or mango. I love to read, especially books by Gabriel García Márquez, including “One Hundred Years of Solitude” and “Love in the Time of Cholera.” I listen to world music and am a huge basketball fan. I enjoy talking with people, especially when they are from other countries. It is great to learn about other cultures and far-away places. Working with Anywhere has been a wonderful experience. It has allowed me to share my love of Costa Rica with many people from around the world.
Pablo really went the extra mile, thanks so much!
Thanks Pablo. You folks are easy to work with, and everything smooth so far. I will recommend!
Pablo, I am definitely coming back. Next time I will call you way ahead to get it more organized. I have to see the parts that I missed including Manuel Antonio national park. I love nature and I love your country. You guys are so lucky to live in a peaceful and beautiful country like this. I will pass the word around and tell all my friends also the man to call to see Costa Rica is Pablo! :-)) Regards Prakash
Thank you Pablo! I am planning my Costa Rica vacation and I will continue working with your site. Excellent choice! Galina
Yea!!!!!!!! Pablo, you have been very helpful. Thanks so much. Susie
Pablo, Thanks for clearing up my confusion. And double thanks for being so polite. What a pleasure to deal with nice people! Have a great day! Joyce Driscoll
Dear Pablo, Thank you for your advice. With your help we are sure to have a wonderful vacation in beautiful Costa Rica (si Dios quiere). I hope you have a nice time with your family. Ciao, Craig Seibert
Thank you very much, Pablo, for your quick response. I am impressed by your service. Charles Chang
Hola Pablo: Thanks so much for your assistance. You and the Monteverde Lodge have fortified my view that the people of Costa Rica are not only friendly and helpful but also exhibit a sense of fairness. Roberto
Thanks to you all for everything that you have done for me in creating a great trip, it made the whole process very easy and i will definitly be recommending you guys to my friends. Thanks again, Gerard.
Hola Pablo! Once again, Costa Rica proves itself to truly be Pura Vida! Our trip was truly wonderful. Gorge Soto is an excellent driver; he is kind polite, funny and helpful. He took extra care on the worst bumps and gaps in the roads, and stopped for some pictures along the way, which we appreciate. It is especially good that he found my sunglasses in the car, which Paolo (you) at the Monteverde office has very generously agreed to send back to me here in the states. (I hope you have sent them already, as am leaving for another trip on the 14th of this month.) It was great that Gorge drove us both ways, so he knew where the house is at Vistas los Pacificos. We liked el Sapo Dorado; the food was excellent. Selvatura Hanging Bridges tour was superb! ESTUPENDO! Andreas, our young guide was well-equipped with bird books and a large telescope which he was quick to set up--that afforded us excellent views of both the male and female resplendant quetzal!!! AND many other good bird sightings. He is a terrific teacher, and the perfect host for Costa Rica, kind, and quick, funny and very knowledgable. taxi/boat/taxi aka jeep/boat/jeep was a grand adventure, with Arenal in full view for the whole boat trip. We loved the approach to the volcano. Our luck was so good, with sunshine in the cloud forest at Monteverde, and then at Arenal--so clear. I love the volcano, pure and simple. Again his year, my luck was terrific, as I had days of clear views. Visiting Arenal has been one of my best travel adventures ever, both years; a live volcano is a true wonder, and the baths are very invigorating. In short, Pablo, we have been very pleased with the service of AnywhereCostRica. You did a good job for us, making it possible to fit in a lot of activities and a selection of three very different regions of your beautiful country. Costa Rica is so hospitable, so clean, and Tico food is so good--I bought an apron with the recipe for gallo pinto so I can make it at home. The only problem is that we can't buy Lizano Salsa here! Thank you very much for your help. I will recommend your service to other friends,and will use your service when I come back to Costa Rica. Pura Vida! Muchas Gracias! Sara F.Sparling
