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...

We stayed at the Hilton Waikoloa Village Sept 6 - 13, 2016, our third stay at this resort.  We already have plans to go back this year with the entire family.

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!

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!

First vacation & Best vacation ever!
I have been working with Sydney for, I believe, a couple years. I originally wanted to surprise my wife with a trip but that ended up falling through due to reasons of my own. I changed jobs and because of that I completely lost her contact and was devastated but did everything I could to find it (because of how fantastic she was). I FOUND IT!!!

She then helped book a vacation for my wife and I to Cabo Mexico. No longer a surprise therefore my wife was mostly in communication.

Sydney was fantastic with recommendations, communication, and preparation for the trip! She was always available (even when she was on her own PTO).

As long as Sydney is with Travel Leaders, I will never use anyone else to book travel. No other company, no other individual.

THANK YOU SYDNEY!!!
