Alright friendlies! We are officially headed to Costa Rica on Friday and I am pumped. It’s been pretty frigid around here for a while now and my bones are craving a little sunshine. Our trip has been booked for a few months now, but we legitimately haven’t had the chance to plan a thing what with work, and wedding stuff, and everything else that life has been throwing at us. You guys were the most amazing help when we were headed to Portugal last summer (here) and I’d love your advice! We’re flying into Liberia and staying in Nosara, but we’re more than happy to travel around if there’s anything we shouldn’t miss. If you’ve been, please share what to do in Costa Rica. Wahoo!

    You have to visit my sister’s store-it’s in a really cute town as well-Santa Teresa

    We did a half day snorkel trip (my husband requires one for any island/tropical trip) which is always fun to be on the boat and see the fishies. I would do some digging to find out which ones take you to best spot(s). The one we did in CR wasn’t the most amazing. But there’s always rum punch haha.

    We stayed in Flamingo Beach and I didn’t realize how far Monteverde and Arenal were! There were day trips to those areas, but with 4 hours driving each way, we decided to save it for our next trip. If you can stay closer to those areas for a night or two so you can enjoy, I would recommend going that route!

    We go to Nosara every year. We just came back on April 1st. There is a lot of yoga and surf. You definitely will need to go to Burgers and Beer, 10 pies and La Luna for dinner. Ensure you make reservations for La Luna. There are a couple rescue sanctuary such as Sibu Santuary and another one, you need to contact them soon to see if they have any availability for visitations. There is Samara, Playa Guiones (Nosara) and playa Pelada. Let me know if you have any questions

    I was just in Nosara a week ago with my husband and two children (10 and 7). A few recommendations: (1) go for a walk/hike in Reserva Biol├│gica (great way to see the mangroves and lots of monkeys) at Lagarta Lodge in the afternoon so you end up back at the lodge in time for sunset (~5:45pm) – the views are amazing!; (2) take a surfing lesson and/or a yoga class – tons of great options for both; (3) restaurant recommendations – La Luna (great location on the beach), Burgers & Beer (delicious huge burgers), Harmony Hotel restaurant (for breakfast); 10 Pies; Beach Dog Cafe (great spot for lunch if you’re on the beach); Go Juice (fresh squeezed juice and smoothies); Robin’s Cafe (great sandwiches and ice cream). The roads are all dirt and due to the dry season everything is very dusty – be forewarned. The place has a great vibe, amazing people, and delicious food – you’ll love it. Very casual and relaxed place. Enjoy!
