We had a wonderful trip. All arrangements were handled promptly and on time. With howler monkeys outside our windows and being able to walk right onto the beach, it doesn’t get better than this.

We wanted to see the Atlantic Coast…

We were two active seniors looking for adventure in Costa Rica, particularly the Atlantic coast. Anywhere put together the perfect 15-day vacation for the two of us, including beach destinations at Tamarindo and Manuel Antonio. Jessica (from Anywhere) adjusted plans easily whenever we needed it. She kept in touch and always made sure we understood the plans and were happy with them.

A wonderful time in Manuel Antonio…

In Manuel Antonio, we stayed at the Karahe Hotel and Villas. It’s at a great location with a good restaurant. The waiting staff was exceptionally friendly and interested in our experiences and our country. It was fantastic to be able to walk right out onto the beach and walk right into Manuel Antonio. Our guide at the National Park tour had an exceptional ability to find animals in the jungle. He was eager to give us more knowledge and make sure everyone had a chance to view the wildlife. He moved at a good pace and kept everyone involved, even the children in the group.

Our favorite thing about this trip…

Tamarindo was the highlight of our vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed the time to unwind on the beach and watch the surfers. Outside our hotel room was a family of howler monkeys in the trees! We will definitely recommend Anywhere to others. We had a wonderful trip — all arrangements were handled promptly and on time. Most of the drivers were great hosts with lots of info about their country, culture, and what we were seeing during the ride.
