Maria Cannon

Fitchburg, WI

Branch Manager & Senior Travel Consultant

Pura Vida! My name is Maria and for my 20th wedding anniversary, my husband and I traveled to Costa Rica were we discovered the "Pura Vida" or "Pure Life" motto of the Costa Rican people. Our travels led us to beautiful black sand beaches tucked into to secret coves, we saw glorious waterfalls that flow like silver out of the jungle, and hiked on paths made from lava rivers that ran down the walls of Arenal Volcano decades ago. This experience was truly "Pura Vida!" for us.

I have over 25+ years in the travel industry and specialize in both corporate and leisure travel. I have assisted my travelers over the years to destinations such as Thailand, Australia & New Zealand, Europe (independent land packages and river cruises), Machu Picchu - Peru, and Alaska to name a few. My travelers have also experienced Celebrity Cruises, Tauck Tours, AMA Waterways and Couples Resorts. I have assisted my corporate travelers with airfare, car rentals, and hotel accommodations.

So, if you need assistance planning your next trip or vacation, give me a call and together we will find your personal "Pura Vida!" adventure.
