Nancy and her three grown up kids set out from Santa Barbara, California for a seven day adventure vacation to Costa Rica. Nancy had rented a house for the five of them on Playa Portero in Guanacsate and rented a car to get around. This beach is close to Playa Flamingo (about forty five minutes north of Tamarindo) and has white sand and great Pacific waves. They encountered great weather. In the Pacific Northwest beaches little rain falls in the month of November.
Nancy called Ann for help setting up the adventure tours because she was having a hard time on the internet doing it alone. “I got very confused about which tour company to use and how long each tour would take.” admitted Nancy. “Ann, the family vacation planner, quickly and efficiently arranged just what we wanted. We did horse back riding on the beach and in the forest, my girls did white water rafting, and my son and I went to Palo Verde National Park and had a fun filled day of boating and bird watching, monkey watching, photographing crocodiles and river turtles. We also did a sunset cruise which included snorkeling. We saw hundreds of small fish, although not colorful-they were fun to watch. Ann accurately told us best route to take to and from San Jose international airport and also how long the driving distance would take. We did not waste any time, thanks to Ann “The Costa Rica Expert”
We very highly recommend Costa Rica for a family vacation. So much beauty and out door adventure activities, and very friendly people. And Ann was great–so of course we recommend you contact her if you are planning a trip to Costa Rica.
