It was so easy to plan…

After reviewing Anywhere.com's comprehensive/extensive website and the menu of offerings, both for hotels and activities, it was easy to plan a trip tailored to what we wanted to see and do. I was assigned Jessica Carvajal – she was extremely responsive and helped me plan a great trip to Costa Rica. This trip turned out to be action-packed and so fulfilling, because we love nature and wildlife. We will definitely return again.

The highlight of our trip was...

The Safari Float was definitely a highlight of our trip. We had Hector as our guide, and he was very knowledgeable, knew English very well, and was accommodating. The river was very peaceful with a minimal amount of current. Hector did most of the paddling but called out instructions when required, to bring us closer to a sighting of animals. We floated down the river for approximately 1.5 hours, during which we had the opportunity to see some of Costa Rica’s famous wildlife. The boat trip down the Penas Blancas River offered a relaxing way to enjoy the abundant wildlife surrounding the banks of this lush paradise. The only complaint — it all ended too soon!

Don’t miss out on night tours!

We went on “The Owl Quest” in Lomas Del Volcan, and we really lucked out as this tour was private — just the two of us! Our guide for the evening was Oscar, who was full of interesting insight and always willing to go the extra mile with picture taking, and providing fun ways of introducing and explaining all of the wonderful things we encountered, including lugging around a telescope! It was highly evident that he was passionate about sharing his knowledge (plenty of it!) and exemplified the warm welcome and friendly personality that is trademark to the Ticos. I have no idea how Oscar managed to sight these birds, but we saw a crested owl, a speckled owl, and a black and white owl. This tour was perfect for us and I highly recommend it to bird enthusiasts!
