We Had a Blast in Costa Rica

I would (and already have) recommended visiting Costa Rica to friends. I hope to go back someday myself. I think Costa Rica is doing a great job with sustainability, and it’s apparent with all the beautiful wildlife and activities we experienced on this trip.

The best mother-daughter trip ever…

My daughter and I planned an 8-day vacation in Costa Rica, and it starts off with Arenal. Arenal did not feel too touristy for us, and we felt safe the whole time. I would definitely recommend this area to anyone visiting Costa Rica. We had a blast here and wish we could have stayed longer in this area.

Charmed by the beauty of Monteverde…

Monteverde was beautiful. The room at Hotel Fonda Vela was very nice and clean. We had a great view from the large hotel window. There was a lot of wildlife around the hotel grounds. It was very quiet and peaceful. The people were friendly, helpful, and professional. We went on a sky tram excursion the next day, and the timing and coordination of the tour was flawless.

Why we would come back without hesitation…

All drivers were friendly, professional, and helpful. They were always on time or a little early. The vehicles were comfortable. I felt safe and was very happy to have the service. It increased my level of relaxation for my vacation because I did not have to worry about where I was going or getting lost. I would absolutely recommend Anywhere to others and I would use their services again. This was our best vacation, and I think one of the reasons was because of the planning and arranging that Marcia did, and how smoothly it all went.
