We spent an hour on video chat with Jenn and she provided so much local knowledge and advice. I can't recommend this service enough. Well worth the money to get access to someone as kind and knowledgeable as this! She had great tips and suggestions for our itinerary based on the questions we sent ahead of time. Every question we had was answered, including knowledge of the local medical facilities, restaurants, beaches, places to avoid, etc. If you're planning a trip to Costa Rica you'd be doing your party a disservice not to book an hour of video chat. I wish every country we traveled to had someone like this. Thanks, Jenn!
We have been to CR three times already but we had some specific plans we needed help with. In one hour with Jenn, I got some information on a range of topics and a realistic appraisal of my own plans up to that point. As a result we changed some of our plans but I was confirmed in others. You are dealing with someone who gives you real information and is not just trying to sell you one thing.
Talking with Jenn was a fantastic experience. We learned a lot for our first trip to Costa Rica. She gave us lots of ideas and made us feel more confident about our trip.
I am so glad to have come across Two Weeks in Costa Rica. While they have numerous informative blogs, I found the initial video chat with Matt to be especially useful. He gave me a list of all the tour companies for all the activities I was interested in (ziplining, hiking, coffee tours, beaches, etc.) and also offered to book the tours. While I booked some of the tours on my own through the companies Matt recommended, I still did not have a set itinerary before I got to Costa Rica and ended up corresponding with Matt even more post arrival.
I ended up requesting last minute bookings for private shuttle services from La Fortuna to Monteverde and even an impromptu day trip from Monteverde to Manuel Antonio (which is rare). Matt was very dependable – he responded to my requests in a timely manner and even followed up afterwards to ensure everything went smoothly.
I was mainly impressed with all of the professional companies that Matt and Jenn work with in Costa Rica. The tour guide Matt booked for Manuel Antonio National Park was a certified naturalist with a keen eye for spotting some of the most unique wildlife. The drivers for the private shuttles were always on time and extremely courteous. One of the drivers went out of his way to help me get a last minute Covid test required for the return flight home after I mixed up the appointment dates.
Matt and Jenn provide more than just information through their blogs and video chats. They provide world-class service by listening to their customers and partnering with professional companies to create a unique experience for travelers.
My husband and I booked an hour long video chat with Jenn and it was super helpful. We have traveled to Costa Rica many times, but have only spent time in one area of the country. We were looking for information on driving and traveling to Atenas, Uvita, and San Isidro del General areas both for vacation and to check out potential retirement locations.
We sent information ahead of the chat as requested, and Jenn had very detailed and helpful details on everything we needed help with. In addition to excellent advice on what we asked about, she also offered alternatives for our itinerary, made recommendations about sites and restaurants, and provided us with a number of resources. As promised, she emailed links to resources we discussed the next day.
The video chat was well worth the fee, and helped us to fell confident about our choices for the trip. Thanks, Jenn!
We really made the right choice is choosing to work with Jenn on our upcoming trip. Jenn’s knowledge, responsiveness, attention to detail, and just general thoughtfulness can't be beat. We highly recommend using this professional team.
Don’t waste time anywhere else, Jenn and Matt will think of and take care of every detail to make sure you have a wonderful trip. They know Costa Rica and they have all the connections. Could not be more grateful for how easy you made this absolutely amazing trip! Thank you Jenn
I approached Jenn with a general list of things we wanted to do and where we wanted to visit in CR. She prepared really thorough itinerary ideas with many options, complete with what to visit, where to stay, what kinds of roads we might encounter, what the weather might be like during our trip, etc. It was so helpful, and an hour that made me much more confident about planning our trip. I would definitely recommend!!!
Our experience working with Jenn and the deep knowledge, tips, and suggestions found in twoweeksincostarica.com made our trip a successful and safe one. Jenn helped us with our reservation at the La Polama in Drake Bay – we got the discount 👍 We had an amazing ocean view room and a once in a lifetime experience. If your heading to Drake Bay, ask Jenn about the "Bug Lady" night tour. It was one of the highlights of our trip.
Regarding safety, Ticos are incredibly in tune with keeping their hotels, restaurants, and the people they meet, comfortable with the COVID precautions the government has in place. Especially tourists. With CR suffering from a 22% unemployment rate, everyone wants to do their part to make sure the experience that visitors have in CR is a safe one.
Muchos gracias Jenn!
Talked to Matt about our plans to move to Costa Rica. Had a list of 22 questions. He answered all of them to the point and with expertise. Really appreciate it. Planning to visit CR for a week and will ask Matt to guide us there. Thanks Matt.
