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...

The Very best trip of our lives!!
Sydney put together a Mediterranean Cruise for me and my lady. Additionally, she made the arrangements for end of cruise stays in Paris and England. Everything was superb! The ship was spectacular and the staff was great. Every transfer between ship, hotel and airline was anticipated and covered. We give Sydney and A+++

Fun in the Sun
I have worked with Sydney on two vacations in the past two years. She has always provided the utmost professionalism and ensured that everything was done so that I would have no worries on my trip. Excellent job and I will use her expertise next year as well.

We'll always have Maui
Sydney was great to plan with. By email and phone we compared notes on potential places, locations, and things to do etc., and made decisions quickly. We saved time and money and began enjoying our vacation before we even left. We picked the perfect location for beach and town roaming. Lahaina shores beach resort has the cleanest room we've ever seen. Sydney's genuine enthusiasm for Hawaii travel makes us want to go again soon. She's professional and personable - calm, cool, collected and very sweet too! We highly recommend her!
