Hero Aylin

Hola! My name is Aylin, and I am an avid traveler and foodie. I got bit by the travel bug during my early 20s and have made traveling my passion ever since. I love to experience new cities and truly get to know the culture, the food, and the people. Through travel we get to immerse ourselves in a new world in every place we visit. As I make my way around the world trying to achieve 30 countries before I turn 30, you can find me lying on a beach in the Caribbean or exploring some fine art in Europe. Join me on this trip and let’s experience all that travel has to offer us.

Amazing company! We had such an amazing time in Costa Rica! I hadn’t been abroad in decades and had so many questions and really no idea how to plan a trip. Randall at Coast to Coast was phenomenal! He set up a wonderful trip for us that was a perfect mix of adventure and relaxation. He responded to my millions of questions quickly, reminded us of things we had to do before travel, and helped us every step of the way. Definitely will be using Coast to Coast again!!

Great Costa Rican Adventure – We did the 12 day Coast to Coast Costa Rica Adventure trip with five of our friends. It was without a doubt one of the best trips we've ever experienced. We were impressed with the way CtoC took care of us right from picking us up at the airport, to sending us on our way after the trip concluded. They provided top notch equipment, accommodations and meals, which to us is good value for our travel dollars. On the adventure, the five guides made sure we were safe at all times, and gave us excellent assistance. We were a varied group - and all levels of skill were accommodated - we never felt rushed or hurried along. Our favorite section of the trip was staying at the river camps after rafting the Pacuare River. If you like adventure - then hike, bike, raft and kayak across Costa Rica!
