Travel Agency or Travel Independently

Which one is more suitable based on your situation and desires

A question that is as old as time…

Is it better to use a travel agency or to travel independently…?

Although this question is definitely something that depends on the person, the group and the circumstances, I’d like to share my story as well as highlight a few bullet points to share with you.

In the past, I was always a solo traveller. I travelled around the world on my own, figuring things out as they unfolded and as I arrived at new and exciting destinations.

I loved the whimsical aspect of the unknown and being excited about what might happen next. MInd you this was the early 2000’s, pre smartphone and GPS. I’d be lucky to find an internet cafe to message my parents and let them know I was ok.

As the times changed, travel changed so did what I was looking for in  travel experiences.

While the unknown and whimsical approach was fun and alluring, there were aspects of my travels that I missed out on due to not being an expert in the area and ultimately not knowing what to look for and what to expect.

Benefits of traveling with an expert.

It wasn’t until I did my first organized group experience around the Golden Triangle of South East Asia (Thailand/Laos/Vietnam)  that I saw first hand the benefits of traveling with an expert. We were given the golden ticket to all the secret spots and local gems, the entire trip.

From eating at all the best restaurants and street food, trying new and interesting foods that I had no idea existed and taking a boat down the Mekong River that only had our small group occupying it. While all the other boats in the marina, the other tourists were squeezed in there like sardines.

This was the moment for me that I realized:

  1. I loved organized travel
  2. I was an expert in my own lane of travel in Costa Rica.

There are many travel agencies and tour operation companies out there. They all have their own niche and their lane of expertise. In this article, I will solely be focusing on the Oshiis Adventures based out of the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica.
