Costa Rica Family Vacations Reviews




Family with children

Sirleny Zuniga Vargas came highly recommended by our friends who had her plan their trip to Costa Rica in 2015. We travel a lot and I generally plan everything on my own but in this case, I am so glad we enlisted Anywhere Costa Rica for travel planning. They made every aspect of this trip a vacation for me and we could not have enjoyed so much of beautiful Costa Rica without their help. We have recommended Sirleny to friends already because she really understood how to construct a 7 night vacation for a family of 5 that met our budget and our goal of making every day fun for all of us.

We decided upon Costa Rica for several reasons. We did not want a poolside vacation created by some large developer, so Costa Rica seemed the right blend of adventure, unknown and exotic. Further it seemed like a great way to completely "unplug" my 16 year old from the PS4. Big appreciation to Lester for his patience and follow through. In short we had a great family experience, my wife and son loved it - so did I. A word about Costa Rica - wonderful place. Very friendly and genuinely nice people. Over the years I have traveled a lot, closer to home visiting a number of Caribbean Island and Hawaii. I rate Costa Rica at the top of list for warm tropical experiences. I now understand why people move there from all over the world. Pura Vida - find out what it means.

We utilized Anywhere Costa Rica for last week's first time visit to Costa Rica. I would be very comfortable recommending this tour company. Katia took our budget in mind for our family of six and arranged everything. San Jose airport transfer to Arenal and then to Monteverde, five different tours and two hotels. All transfer drivers to tours and airports were professional and always right on time!

We just returned to Canada after two weeks in Costa Rica. What a trip and I fully credit the success to Tracy and Anywhere Costa Rica. Tracy was absolutely fantastic. Tracy had to change some of our hotels because we had five people and she did it quickly and gave us great advice. The excursions Tracy booked for us were perfect for our family, just like she said it would be.
