Passport for Costa Rica

My clients are traveling to Costa Rica in July. The daughter's passport expires the following month, after they return. I checked on the State Dept website and it said that Costa Rica requires a passport to be valid at the time of travel. I checked with Southwest and they verified that.  Is there anything else that I need to check before I can reassure my client that she won't have a problem with the passport?See More

"It is probably because the resort is close to being sold out so, when that happens they put it on request with the TOs. I think the RIU Resorts, which are closer to the airport, allow 1 night. Not many AI Resorts allow one night."

The Island of Hawaii

Just had a client call us from the island to let us know they were having a fantastic time on their vacation.  They are staying in the Wiakoloa area.  They were almost ready to cancel their trip and we convinced them that there would be no problems.  They thanked us for doing that and said the only time they are affected by the volcano is when they watch the news, other than that they said they would not even know anything was going on. They said they can't even see the volcano from where they are. Their comment was, why does the news have to scare everyone unnecessarily? They told us, you have a client for life, you were so patient with us, answered all our questions, aleaved all our concerns, and really knew what you were talking about. They are on the island of Hawaii for a week and then finishing up with a week on Kauai. Nice to get a call like this.See More
