Our first international trip—a success!

This was my first time traveling solo with two boys on our first international vacation. They are 12 and 14, and we’re a fairly active family. I wanted everything planned perfectly! Our itinerary started at Arenal for some rainforest adventures, and ended up at the coasts of Guanacaste for some sun! Our favorite excursion was the La Fortuna Waterfall and hanging bridge tour. My boys LOVED the hanging bridge, especially since the guide was able to point out many cool animals on the way there. Zip lining at the Sky Tram Tour was unnerving, but a new experience for us all.

Getting some sun at Playa Hermosa…

We stayed at Playa Hermosa during our time in Guanacaste. We went on a scuba diving trip far out into the ocean. However, the scuba divers that were our guides were all professional, so we felt safe the whole time. The beach was beautiful and we enjoyed spending time at the beach house in the hotel.

Perfect coordination and the best trip planners…

Anywhere.com was PERFECT! The email communication and the ease of use of the itinerary were awesome. Traveling with two boys myself was EASY because you took such great care of us. Thank you for making our trip successful and fun!
