A trip perfectly tailored to my needs…

We had been thinking about a Costa Rica vacation for the longest time. We wanted to experience the beautiful nature people talk about, to mingle with locals, and have some relaxing days on the beach. Harold was super helpful and very patient with my requests, specifically dietary restrictions based on a medical condition that’s very important. I’m glad we could trust Anywhere to take care of everything without having to worry about it on our holiday.

Our favorite part of the journey…

Monteverde is a special place; we loved it so much. Gorgeous nature, quiet, beauty, simply a dream. The owner of the Sunset Hotel was very welcoming and made us feel at home. We couldn't quite see Nicoya Bay because of the clouds, but the garden was really magnificent. We had so much fun in Selvatura Park with Canopy and Suspension Bridges! So amazing to walk near the top of the trees, we could even touch their leaves and breath the same air. The zip lines were exhilarating and so much fun. The Selvatura Park guys were very kind and helpful with all the group, from the beginning to the end – unforgettable experience.

Why Costa Rica is the place you must visit…

We also had a lot of fun snorkeling for hours at Tortuga Island! We swam with hundreds of colored fish, it was very beautiful and unforgettable! Anywhere organized a beautiful holiday for us. It’s amazing how the local animals and people live together in harmony, which in my opinion is what made the country so unique. I miss Costa Rica so much.
