Costa Rica is a must-do for the adventurous vacation goer. I stayed in Montezuma at Casa Frangipani, a gorgeous (and very affordable!) villa up the hill from the quaint, colorful town. Surf lessons, sun soaking, and seeking secluded beach coves were a daily treat. Not pictured are the many waterfalls discovered during rainforest hikes and the ATV I used as transportation throughout the week. Day trips to the expansive beaches of Mal Pais and Santa Teresa were also a highlight.
I will carry the pura vida of Costa Rica with me always. Add it to your bucket list and just go!
