Costa Rica

A few years ago my mother and I took a short vacation in Costa Rica. Here are a few of my recommendations!

Guanacaste

Nice airbnb and pretty beach for sunsets.

Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve

Amazing rainforest with birdwatching and hiking opportunities. Keep in mind it’s very difficult to find directions to and that the roads leading to the forrest are rough! Definitely rent a four wheeler if you plan to visit here (which you should!).

Rio Celeste

This river turns a stunning blue, but DO NOT go if it has rained recently (which was all the time when we went). Not only is the hike really muddy, the river also turns brown.
