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.

Much like Hawaii's Aloha, you can use it to say hello and goodbye, and you can also use it to say thank you. In the same vein as Hakuna Matata, you...

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!

Trip of a Lifetime
Sydney is a good listener who seems to be in tune with what the client is looking for. She asks plenty of clarifying questions regarding a client’s travel plans and needs to ensure all are on the same page. Sydney is creative, and she is able to offer ideas and make suggestions regarding a trip that you’d never think of. She is also a master of the computer and can access online travel information at the blink of an eye! An added bonus is her thoughtfulness. On a day that was scheduled for my mom and me to finalize our trip with Sydney, she brought me a fancy cupcake for my birthday!
