Customer Testimonials

Costa Rica Tours

We used Pura Vida Vacations to book tours for us while on a cruise in January. Laurie Johnson did a fantastic job in arranging our transportation to and from our ship as well as private tours for us in Costa Rica and Panama. The people she arranged for us were fantastic in their knowledge and did great work. The private tours she arranged were actually less expensive than the ship tours with only 4 of us. I would highly recommend Laurie's services.

Exceptional Custom Bucket list trip

Reviewed By cabel - Dundas, Ontario | Traveled to Scotland ~ Europe
Excellent! We went on a 3 tiered bucket list trip. Laurie helped us pick the sites we most wanted to see, given 3 different opinions. She arranged all of the tours, transportation and details we needed. We had 3 separate travel locations. New York to board the Queen Mary for the trans-Atlantic cruise, London and Scotland. We had an custom adventure of a lifetime.

Heaven on Earth

Reviewed By JEMI - ONTARIO | Traveled to Barbados ~ Caribbean
We (my husband and I) shopped around on multiple usual websites for where we thought we might like to go for a winter vacation. Once we narrowed our search, we contacted Laurie who was more than willing to do some price shopping for us. We changed our minds several times and Laurie was more than patient with us, allowing us the peace of mind to find out about each place and give us the good and not so good reviews of each place which helped us to make our decision.

In the end, we booked Almond Beach resort in Barbados and Laurie did her best to try and find us the best tour operator with the best price. Laurie personally delivered our travel documents and the peace of mind that if we had any questions prior to departing (and we did) and or any questions when we arrived, that we could contact her and she would advocate on our behalf. The Almond Beach resort more than met our expectations and was like heaven on earth.

Great vacation!

Reviewed By Kristy - Hamilton | Traveled to
Laurie was an amazing help in planning our vacation. I gave her our budget and what we were looking for for our vacation. Laurie was super quick to get back to me with a lot of different destinations to choose from. She was always there with a quick response anytime I had questions, This was my first time travelling to the Caribbean and she gave me a ton of information on what I should pack/bring with us. When we had issues with our hotel on the first day, I sent her a message and she got back to me right away giving me advice on what I should do and say. She made planning our vacation a joy. When I mentioned to her that my boyfriend wanted to do an ATV excursion, she looked into it and sent me info and costs to do it. I am so glad that I have found someone I know I can trust to book my vacations with and will recommend her to anyone wanting to book a trip. Thank you Laurie for your help in us having an amazing trip!! I look forward to booking our next trip with you!!
