We want to experience it all…

This was our first trip to Costa Rica, and we were looking forward to experiencing the best the country had to offer — which meant nature, hikes, volcanoes, and rainforests. Erick from Anywhere was knowledgeable and seemed to know what attractions we would appreciate. The itinerary he suggested took us from Arenal to Tenorio Volcano and finally, unwind at Playa Hermosa, as we also wanted some beach time.

If you’re visiting Costa Rica, I want to recommend...

I very much enjoyed our time visiting Tenorio Volcano. We stayed at Casitas Tenorio, which had beautiful surroundings and the most nature we saw on our whole vacation. You can see sloths, monkeys, and a variety of exotic birds on the property of the hotel. We wish we could have spent more time here. Our guides Pip and Donald, for the natural hikes, really ensured we had a great time.

A beautiful boat ride into the sunset

Our last stop of the vacation was at Playa Hermosa, and we stayed at Villa del Sueno suites. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We spent a wonderful afternoon on the Pacific on the Marlin del Rey Catamaran tour. The boat ride was comfortable, and the crew a friendly and humorous crowd. Costa Rica was a beautiful country with very friendly people everywhere we went.
