Pura Vida - A phrase you will at least a dozen times a day in Costa Rica. Pura Vida isn't so much a saying as it is a way of life in Costa Rica.

30th Anniversary Trip
This is the 2nd trip Sydney has helped plan for us. This one included: 6 flights, 3 islands in Hawaii, 1 hotel, 1 rental car and a 2 bedroom house rental. It was absolutely perfect! Every plan at every turn was perfect. Sydney will always be our go-to sweet lady for our travel needs, she is superb!

Syndey did it again!
I can always count on Syndey to book an awesome trip. She helped me plan a surprise bday trip for my husband in Las Vegas during Super Bowl weekend. The pricing that she found was unbeatable and everything went smoothly. She’s always so patient and kind. I know that she loves what she does. My husband loved the trip so much that we decided to do a yearly trip to Las Vegas for his bday/Super Bowl. Thanks again Syndey!

Surprise New Year trip
My experience with Sydney from beginning to end was more than I expected. I decided to give my family a trip to Punta Cana for Christmas and she did it disappoint by preparing a package in our budget, allowing us to pay off during a short period. A couple days before our trip I asked if she could contact the resort and have decorations for both our kids (age 20 and 25) who just had a bday and one about to have a birthday. Upon arrival we went to their room and it was decorated with towel art and flowers! In addition, Sydneybwas always available to ask questions and obtain additional info regarding excursions, etc. We have already recommended Sydney to family and friends and will be accessing her services for future adventures.
