Sure, you can plan every vacation on you own: you can browse through travel websites such as Tripadvisor or Travelocity to find great hotels and also tours, you can ask your cousin, friend or colleague where they went and you can then do everything on your own. Or so you think…
Once you find out that Costa Rica is a beautiful country that is sometimes hard to navigate because of logistics and that you will have so many choices to make along the way that you will get confused and somewhat frustrated, you will wish you’d have hired a great travel agent.
AN OUTSTANDING COSTA RICA TRAVEL AGENT IS A GREAT TRAVELER AS WELL
It takes one to know one…and same goes for traveling. People who are passionate about traveling will look for the best experiences at each new place they visit: the hotel, the tours and of course, the people. The more you travel, the better you get at spotting what will work for you and why. An outstanding Costa Rica Travel Agent has crossed the country North to South and East to West and will be passionate about each little detail encountered along the way.
BECAUSE OF S/HE HAS TRAVELLED ALL OVER COSTA RICA, A GREAT TRAVEL AGENT WILL KNOW THE EXACT ANSWER TO EVERY QUESTION
What may often happen when you reach out and contact a rep from one of those large travel websites is that the person at the other end of the phone has zero knowledge on the place the company is recommending. You may ask if a certain hotel is good for toddlers or you may request specifics on the Best Costa Rica Zip Lining tour and you will probably get the same answer: we don´t know, you should contact the tour operator for more information.
A SAVVY COSTA RICA TRAVEL AGENT WILL BE A TOTAL CONTROL FREAK
There may be not be a flawless vacation but your control freak of an agent will probably try to plan every single little detail so that s/he build an almostperfect Costa Rica Vacation Package. What more, your travel agent will be so obsessed with everything being a success that s/he will follow your every move while you are already here in Costa Rica: either by always being available for you or by asking the behind the scene questions to the hotels, tour operator and drivers.
THE TOTAL CONTROL FREAK IN A GREAT TRAVEL AGENT WILL BORDER ON HARASSMENT
There is no worse situation for a total control freak than not knowing how things are turning out. Thus, a great travel agent will probably get in touch with you as soon as you are back home and will harass you with questions such as: what did you like about your vacation? Was there anything you would change? Did you hate anything along the way?...and if you do not answer right away s/he will try contacting again.
It may sound alarming that a travel agent contacts you after your trip and just when you are already stressed out from going back to everyday life. But you see, if a travel agent does not ask s/he will not know what to change in the future, which will add to the control issues of not knowing how things are going on.
