Starting the trip with a bang…

What an adventure! Our trip to Costa Rica started off with a little hiccup — we had to rebook the driver who was picking us up at the airport because our first plane was delayed and we missed our connection. I emailed Anywhere from the airport as soon as I knew our new flight and they rebooked it without any fuss. They also helped after the trip with getting receipts that I needed for an insurance claim.

Pro tips when planning your Costa Rica adventure…

In my opinion, booking a trip with a guide is the best way to maximize what you see at any of the parks, because the guides know where the animals are hiding. We booked guided tours for Manuel Antonio National Park and the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. Not only will your guide be knowledgeable, but when the guides pass each other on the trails, they tell each other what they've seen. So, you get the collective knowledge of many guides when you use a guide. Almost all guides use a high-powered spotting scope to help you see things. Bringing your own binoculars is still a good idea, if you have them, to see things that move quickly. Even though we consider ourselves to be pretty good at spotting wildlife, we know that we saw a lot more birds, reptiles and monkeys with the help of the guides.

Flawless execution on all parts of the trip…

I would highly recommend using Anywhere.com to plan day trips or any part of your Costa Rica trip. I used them to plan everything but the flight and couldn't have been more pleased. They arranged drivers or shared transport, day tours that matched our preferences, and great hotels. All the drivers showed up on time and were friendly. All the tours were in small groups, or sometimes just us, and the guides were great. The hotels were always in great locations, and for all this value, the price of our package was quite reasonable.
