As the weather gets warmer I slowly start to shed my layers- er clothing wise. After speaking to my brother in Costa Rica (he manages our project) I can’t wait to head down there to soak in the sun and hang in the jungle! What to pack when you are visiting such a diverse country really varies according to where you will be visiting.

If you are heading up north, you’ll be in for the heat, so pack lightweight items and bring plenty of sun lotion and hats. Hanging with the surfers in Tamarindo? Throw in some maxi dresses and flip flops and you’ll fit right in.

Volcano watching? It gets chilly and foggy up at the top. Not only is the fauna crazy looking but the view into the volcano is amazing! You’ll want to bring a light jacket or rain poncho and umbrellas and wear jeans and good hiking shoes. Also, the earlier you arrive the better chances are to see anything. If you are going to Arenal, the nightly volcanic eruption show is fantastic as well as the hot springs (amazing!).

Jungle action requires a bit of bug repellant, hat, water, shorts and if you are visiting our jungle Rainmaker bring a swim suit because a dip in the waterfalls is a MUST! You’ll get rained on but that is part of the adventure.

Going further south… the Nicoya area is a wonderfully laid back zone. More surfing vibe and beach wear. In Montezuma eat at Playa de los Artistas because sunset in this bohemian restaurant is otherworldly (if you can find it). Stay at Flor Blaca because the spa will change your life and you’ll feel like a rock star. (celebrity spotting zone)

All the way south is the Osa Peninsula where I feel is the heart of what Costa Rica is all about. We stay at Poorman’s Paradise a family run, verrry rustic place. Just getting there is an adventure but once you do you’ll see flocks of macaws, families of howler monkeys, toucans, and if you are lucky- jaguars. They’ll take you to an uninhabited island off the coast were you can do some snorkeling or animal watch. This is the last place on earth that you can get away from it all and be surrounded by lush jungle and beach. A perfect combination to enjoy with your best of friends!
