Pura Vida Anniversary Adventure

14 Day Costa Rica Itinerary

To celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, we chose to visit Costa Rica. It was our first time visiting, but we fell in love with the place immediately. From Arenal, to Monteverde, to Manuel Antonio we’d come back again!

The ultimate vacation to celebrate our anniversary…

My husband and were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and we decided on Costa Rica to mark the special occasion. We are both fairly fit and active — we enjoy hiking, snorkeling, and seeing wildlife. We had never been to Costa Rica and didn’t have time to conduct in-depth research. As first-time travelers to this country, Anywhere gave us great recommendations to see Costa Rica’s most iconic volcanoes, rainforests, and beaches!

I would absolutely recommend this place...

Our favorite place was Monteverde. I loved the coffee tour. The guide was extremely knowledgeable, and I feel I learned a great deal about coffee, sustainable farming practices, and the challenges of the Costa Rican coffee industry. We also went on a tour into the cloud forest reserve, and the guide was even able to point out a Quetzal to us! We stayed at Monteverde Lodge — the grounds were beautiful and tranquil. We did a night hike with their guide Carlos and he was superb. The food at breakfast and dinner was of high-quality and well prepared. We would definitely come back again.

Awesome service and recommendations for our needs…

Overall, Anywhere provided excellent service, all tours and transportation were as scheduled and on time. The guides from the excursions were all good and knowledgeable. The places we visited, hotels, and tours were excellent for first-time visitors like ourselves!
