The Ultimate road trip adventure…

The four of us were looking forward to an awesome Costa Rica friends vacation, and Anywhere did not disappoint. Katia did an amazing job coordinating our different arrival methods and timing, and we had a perfect start to the vacation on Valentine’s Day! We rented a vehicle through Anywhere to have more flexibility on the trip. Our itinerary took us from Arenal to Monteverde and finally, some relaxing beach time on Santa Teresa!

Unforgettable memories from Santa Teresa…

We LOVE Casa Marbella hotel at Santa Teresa. There are so many wonderful restaurants in the area — Maona Lodge and Las Caracolas for sunsets; Mary's has the best pizza; Banana Beach and Habanero for beach eats and drinks; Koji for sushi; Dayka and Dorados in Manzanillo! My favorite place in the whole world! Cabo Blanco was a great hike, tidal pools were great, the beaches are pristine and once you get out of the immediate town you have the whole place to yourself.

Our fourth time, and not the last!

This is our 4th year using Anywhere Costa Rica and we could not be more pleased. The website is great and we consider it our go-to resource. On a few occasions when we have run into problems, delays, etc. - Team Anywhere is available quickly by phone, email, or chat for a quick fix. Anywhere.com is so much more than a travel agency and more like a friendly guide for every step of the way! We really feel like they are family friends that we can trust!

Costa Rica is about the size of West Virginia, but ground transportation can take many hours on its rough, windy, and mountainous roads. Depending on your travel route, domestic flights may be the most convenient and sensible option. Traveling between some destinations can take up to 8 hours by ground, while a domestic flight can cut that travel time to 35 minutes - a major time saver, especially if you have only a short time in Costa Rica.
