Costa Rica Travel Agent Specialist

Of all the places to choose to see in Central America, I believe that Costa Rica is the best choice. That is why I love my job representing the country as a travel agent specialist. Whether you center your activity on surfing or yoga, dive into bat-inhabited tunnels or ascend misty volcanic peaks, your only limitation is your return date. Known as Central America's peaceful soul, Costa Rica may be considered the ultimate trip, at least, from a marketing professional's perspective. The rich coast has earned its moniker and stands out from its Central American neighbors, as its travel activities include farm-to-table dining, surfing, and eco-friendly trips. The infrastructure development in the country is balanced by using renewable energy, such as hydro and wind. Costa Rica is also one of the most biodiverse nations in the world, with a wife variety of species of insects, birds, and mammals. Needless to say, the country is a birder's paradise. If you are seeking an outdoor adventure, you will find a dizzying array of outdoor sports and activities, including snorkeling, scuba diving, hiking, fishing, swimming, and ziplining. Visit the country's national parks to experience both cloud forests and rainforests on your Costa Rican adventure. Simmering volcanoes offer spectacular views and surfing is enjoyed by both novices and specialists alike. If you are undecided about what to do, I can help you as your travel agent and planner. Believe me when I say that you can fit a lot of activities and adventures into a short holiday. For example, you won't believe the abundance of fauna in the country. You will see toucans and white scarlet macaws close up, and even sloths may make an appearance. You may even see the eyes of a caiman (a semi-aquatic lizard) as it breaks the surface of the water in a mangrove swamp. If you listen closely, you may hear the rustling produced by a troop of white-faced capuchins. Capuchin monkeys are so cute. They are the "organ-grinder" monkeys that often are seen in movies or on old TV shows. You can also spot an assortment of butterflies, as they glide through the rainforest's orchid-adorned and fragrant bushes and trees. If you snorkel, you can see spectacularly vibrant tropical fish, or you can even swim with dolphins and whales. According to some studies, Costa Ricans live healthier and longer lives than other people in the world. That is because they experience pura vida (the pure life), a phrase well-known on the island. If you want to experience a pure life vacation, one that is both welcoming and inviting, call me today. As your travel agent specialist, I can guarantee that you will love your trip to this lush and tropical country sitting between Nicaragua and Panama.

Best Trip Ever because of Blake
Blake was with us the entire trip from the beginning till I walked back in my house. He was so kind and caring about our trip. He got us all sort of amenities such as early check in and late check out, champagne in our hotel, breakfast daily and extra nights for free. I am planning my next trip to Europe and I will be using him definitely. Thank you Blake

Highly Recommend Blake Dinger
I planned a trip last month and did a google search and found Blake. Everything I could ever ask for in a travel agent. Blake recommended restaurants and really one of the best trips I have taken. I will be using him again.
