Why take your next vacation in Costa Rica?

Desperate to put down your screens and live in the moment? We’ve designed the perfect Signature Trip for you! Explore Costa Rica in fun, exciting, and engaging ways as you spot animals on a floating safari, enjoy scenic transportation, take a ride on a catamaran and more.

The most adventurous part of this trip will be…

We’re going to call it a draw between the floating safari down the Penas Blancas River; the suspension bridge that will let you get a literal birds-eye view as you walk through a forest canopy; and seeing nocturnal animals as you creep through the forest after dark.

A complicated trip made simple.

Romance and adventure are easy when you let Anywhere’s Local Experts handle the heavy lifting. Leave the troubleshooting at work and focus on each other. We’ll handle arranging accommodations, tours, and transportation, and we’ll still be there to help you every step of the way after you land.

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.
