More Reasons to LOVE Costa Rica

By February 22, 2013 Social Media, Travel, Trips No Comments

February 2013 saw me spending a lot of time in the Nicoya peninsula in beautiful Costa Rica. I was lucky to visit Panama during my time in South America. Panama is incredible!
When I traveled to Costa Rica,  I stayed  a couple nights in San Jose, and spent the majority of my time surfing in Santa Teresa and Playa Carmen.  When I first arrived in Santa Teresa Costa Rica, immediately the first thing I did was  surf . Surf in Costa Rica is a magical experience. Sometimes it is just me and the birds, (literally!) – floating out in the ocean. I spent a lot of time at a phenomenal beach house  with a gorgeous view of the pacific ocean.  The infinity pool showed us a spectacular view of the sunset from high in the mountain side.  I can’t wait to go back soon . I definitely did a lot of surfing (sometimes 4 hours a day!) and my surf skills improved greatly. Big thank you to Simone who taught me a LOT and for arranging a photo shoot with photographer Antonio Russo. I had a fun time shooting. Many mornings consisted of watching the sun rise with yoga at the ocean. I ate the best food. During the week, our friend Tyler would cook delectable foods like ceviche or a mixed meal of fish, steak, chicken, veggies, rice and more. Ty often cooked for 10 or twelve of us and I swear on one occasion there must have been 7 pounds of guacamole. Ty is the bombest chef around! On top of the exceptional food I ate, I  spent a night dining at fabulous and beautiful Brisas del Mar  in Santa Teresa. I ate the best Mahi Mahi with Korma I’ve ever tasted.

Excursions were plenty! I went snorkeling with Ryan – and saw a Spotted Moray Eel while snorkeling. One day we  visited Rio Bongo with friends where we had a blast spending the day in the sunshine and floating down the lazy river into the ocean. I had been to Rio Bongo the day before with Kolton where we swam further up the river. I thought Kolton was pulling my leg when he picked up a stick and poked around for crocs before we jumped in the river until the next day when Ryan informed me that there  “may be crocodiles up the river – that way,” pointing to the exact spot Kolton and I swam in the day before. ha. I also visited the waterfalls at Montezuma… Check it out!

I plan to visit in  2014 for more months. Costa Rica is truly one of the best places.
