Costa Rica's Caribbean coast is a world apart from the rest of the country. The pace is slower, the food is spicier, the tropical heat is more palpable, and the rhythmic lilt of patois and reggae music fills the air.
In other words, this was exactly our kind of 'off the beaten path' getaway.
Here are a few shots for your viewing pleasure:
Gorgeous place, isn't it? I sure hope you'll consider this part of Central America for your next getaway.
There's so much to do (hiking, surfing, ziplining, ATV'ing, bicycling, fishing, snorkeling & swimming for starters), the people are just lovely, the beaches gorgeous, the jungle lush, the wildlife plentiful and the food amazing.
Speaking of food, next up, a post about dining in Playa Chiquita. Delicioso-ness!
But before I go, I want to show you what I did on my 30ish birthday in CR:
Yup, that's me ziplining in the Costa Rican jungle. It was quite the exhilarating experience and I had that big goofy grin plastered on my face all day long. I kept on thinking - shiite, I'm ziplining, in the jungle, in Costa Rica.
most. memorable. birthday. ever.
Happy Thursday friends!
