The best kind of vacation a family can ask for…

This was the best trip our family ever had. We got exactly what we asked for, except the hotels were much better than we expected! I sincerely felt like we got our money's worth and more. Manuel Antonio National Park is stunning, and was probably our favorite place in Costa Rica. Sloths and monkeys in the trees, a beautiful beach, good snorkeling — what more can a family ask for?

Why we’ll come back again…

Although I missed the 3-in-1 safari, waterfall, and volcano hike because my son was sick, my wife and kids got to do it, and she tells me it was the best. The tour guide even helped carry my daughter some of the way, to help relieve her weight. That's extraordinary! This is what I'll hopefully come back to do next time.

The secret gem in Monteverde…

Hotel Fonda Vela at Monteverde felt like a secret resort tucked away into the mountain. We didn't see any other guests at breakfast, that’s how quiet and serene it was. The room was gorgeous. All dark wood and wood furniture. Spectacular view, statues everywhere, little nature hikes, we loved this hotel. We even saw hummingbirds, armadillos, and other wild animals. I have recommended Anywhere to many of my friends now. I've never felt so satisfied and cared for by a third party.
