Action-Packed Adventure Costa Rica

Action-Packed Adventure

Planning a trip for a family of four with young kids can be stressful. I’m so glad that we had Anywhere to help us through the process—exceptional responsiveness and great value for the money.

Perfect planning from beginning to end…

My wife and I reached out to Anywhere when we decided on visiting Costa Rica for our annual family trip. We wanted to explore the northern part which has the rainforest and adventurous excursions. Anywhere made awesome recommendations and was very communicative throughout the whole planning process.

The highlights of our trip…

Rafting at Sarapiqui River was the highlight of our trip. The guides were all excellent and provided delicious food to help us fuel up for an exhilarating ride! We were also very impressed with the Selvatura Park tour. We loved the hanging bridges trail, the hummingbirds, and zip lining. We even got to see a butterfly come out of its cocoon in the butterfly garden.

Volcano hikes and hot springs, the perfect combo…

We thoroughly enjoyed the El Silencio Volcano hike and the Baldi Hot Spring experience, especially the kids! We were lucky to be in a smaller group; the guides were extra attentive and showed us lots of cool things on the hike. The hot spring was amazing, I wish we had more time there. Anywhere offered fantastic service, and the itinerary was put together with minimal guidance; exceptional responsiveness and great value for the money. I would highly recommend Anywhere to friends and family traveling to Costa Rica.
