travel agent or book myself

thank you to all who helped me plan my itinerary. i have a 90% idea of what i want to do in costa rica/panama. does anyone recommend a travel agent, or will i be fine booking on my own? is it cheaper to try a package deal w/ an agent? anyone recommend anyone in particular? thanks!

I have been communicating via email with Syracuse Tours of Costa Rica but have not booked the trip just yet. Has anyone had any experience with this company? See syracusetours.com for information.

no experience w/ syracuse b/c i try to avoid tours. however, you might want to check out AAA travel or costco. my brother likes tours and he uses them for international travel and says he saves quite a bit.

I would just book it myself, especially as you know pretty well what you want. CR is very easy to plan/book, no need to pay extra for someone to book what you already know you want IMO.

We are not planning on renting a car so we're are using Syracuse Tours to pick us up at the airport and transport us to various hotels and they will also book our hotels but the prices were the same as what we could book it for. Looks like the cost is for driver/guide.
