Costa Rica.....yes, please-uh!

I've heard nothing but amazing things about Costa Rica from people who have been, and the pictures I see of it look incredible. It's always been on my list of places I want to go someday, and lucky for me, it's been on MG's list too (and is one of the places he actually HASN'T been to yet), so we decided to try to plan a trip to Costa Rica for around Christmas time (like the day after Xmas). Obviously this is one of the most expensive times to travel, but unfortunately, being a teacher (and no longer working at a year-round school with breaks throughout the year), this is one of the few times I can actually go somewhere. #teacherproblems

Anyway, we're looking for recommendations and/or ideas about places to go, places to stay, adventures to do, etc. And, if you know of any places that are a little less expensive but still nice, that would be fab and much appreciated.

So, have you been? Do you know any good places? Things that we absolutely HAVE to do? Please please please, tell me!

Fingers crossed we can make this happen for less than a small fortune! :)


  1. You should talk to Sportyspice. She went there in college. Granted she stayed with a family friend, but she knows some of the fun places to visit. Looks like fun!


  2. A friend was just telling me about Paradisus Resorts and they have one in Costa Rica!

  3. Sounds like a lovely vacation! :)

  4. Sounds great! That is definitely on my list of places I'd like to visit - but I haven't made it yet so I don't have any personal recommendations for you. Everyone I talk to who has been there always says the zip-lining is awesome, though!


I LOVE hearing your thoughts and comments--so, make my day and leave me some lovin'!
