Bucket Listing in Costa Rica
In the month of March, a few friends and I decided to visit Costa Rica to celebrate our birthdays. Costa Rica has been on my bucket list of places in the world to visit and I finally made it!
When you hear of Costa Rica, you immediately think rainforest, jungle, beaches, volcanoes and biodiversity. I couldn't wait to indulge and experience the culture, food, traditions, the jungle and to do one thing I always wanted to do: ziplane across the jungle!
We stayed on the western side of the country at the Riu Palace Costa Rica. The hotel is tucked between lush mountains so you're completely surrounded by nature. It's a beautiful hotel which I recommend but it is very, very quiet. If you want something more up beat, this is not the place for you.
We spent a total of 4 days in Cosa Rica and enjoyed the beaches, lounging by the pool, experiencing different foods and the over-all culture, skiing, horseback riding, tubing, hiking and the best part, zip lining through the jungle.
We spent our last night celebrating our birthdays with the locals. It was a fun night of salsa, bachata and all around good times!
I will save us the embarrassment by not posting the videos of us dancing, lol
Costa Rica was a really good time. We were on the western side of the country but was told the Eastern side is really really fun! I plan to go back one day. However, since it's checked off the bucket list that re-visit is on low priority.
Any questions about a trip to Costa Rica feel free to reach out.
