An unforgettable getaway to Costa Rica…

My partner and I were planning a 10-day vacation to Costa Rica, and we’re so glad we stumbled upon Anywhere and had Tracy help us figure out the best way to put the trip together. We booked everything through them — transportation, resorts, and even things to do at each destination.

To be surrounded by nature...it’s simply lovely.

To experience unique ecolodges and the different environments at Monteverde, we stayed at two places — Hotel Belmar and Hotel Fonda Vela were wonderful, as were their restaurants. We had great views of the sunset, and being enclosed by nature was the best feeling ever.

Our favorite destination from this trip…

Aguila de Osa Inn was paradise! This hotel in Drake Bay faces the ocean and is perched on a cliff. They have a great staff and wonderful facilities! We loved every minute of it! Our booking included excursions to Corcovado National Park and Caño Island. This is a great package, and I recommend it if you are staying in the area for three nights or longer!

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.
