A Pura Vida Anniversary Eco-Escape

11 Day Costa Rica Itinerary

My husband and I are lucky enough to have traveled to many places. Our Costa Rica trip was one of the best vacations we have ever taken. I was so impressed with how smooth all of our plans went. We look forward to returning in a few years.

Celebrating our anniversary in style…

This trip was in celebration of our 20th anniversary, and we were really looking forward to exploring Costa Rica’s rich nature, such as the rainforests and the beach. We’re a couple in our late 40s, so 2 to 3 locations was the perfect pace. Anywhere helped us put together a great mixture of relaxation and moderate adventure. Katia was helpful, patient, and efficient – everything that I would want in an agent and more.

Our favorite activities from the trip…

We are not hikers, but enjoy zip lining, moderate canopy tours, and some rafting. The sky tram and zipline experiences were amazing. The wildlife safari float was also very memorable. It was a great tour with a great guide; very relaxing and fun. The drivers were all professional, helpful, and on time. I really needed a quick stop at a store for a personal item that I forgot and our driver was incredibly helpful.

The best vacation we ever had…

Arenal Nayara Hotel is my favorite hotel ever. I never wanted to leave. The room was fabulous. Service everywhere was above and beyond our expectations. The pool area was perfect with shaded loungers available at all times and the food was excellent at all of its restaurants. Out of all the places in the world, our Costa Rica trip was one of the best vacations we have ever taken. I was so impressed with how smooth all of our plans went. We look forward to returning in a few years.
