I’m a moaner. Not like that, you perv. I find myself moaning awkwardly when eating a meal that knows exactly what my taste buds need. It doesn’t even have to be mind-blowing but for some reason the moment that I have deliciousness touch my flavor receptors, a mind explosion happens and it just comes out.… Continue reading My Coffee Connoisseur Meal Made Me Moan at Finca Rosa Blanca, Costa Rica
I could feel my heart beating and adrenaline coursing through my veins. My ears were filled with the sound of waves crashing as we made our way down the narrow winding path to Playa Espadilla. A sense of urgency overcame me and I suddenly needed the sea like I needed air to breathe. I started… Continue reading Wanderlust Wednesday: The Sea is Calling Me – Playa Espadilla in Costa Rica
The plane door opened and a gust of hot air rushed across my face at the Liberia Airport. I took in a deep breath. I had been here a few times previously and I couldn’t help but feel like I was at home in Costa Rica. The humidity hugged my skin tightly and I was… Continue reading Eat, Drink, Sleep, Do: Costa Rica Style
Costa Rica never ceases to amaze me. From lush rainforests to some of the most stunning coast lines I’ve ever laid my eyes on, this country is both rich in wildlife and beauty. We had spent time in Costa Rica before – living in Playas del Coco, checking out coffee in Monteverde, and falling in… Continue reading Costa Rica on Instagram – Our #GiftOfHappiness

We found ourselves in the awesome dusty town of Puerto Viejo during our last rendezvous with Costa Rica. This entire town was founded on tourism and I’m happy to say that it isn’t quite oversaturated… yet. See it while you can. A bit of a Caribbean vibe mixed with the Costa Rican “pura vida” will… Continue reading Photo Essay: Hangin’ in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica
This is the second part of a two part series. We were offered the opportunity to participate in Gecko Trail Adventures popular 3 in 1 tour in Puerto Viejo. Due to the sheer awesomeness of this tour, I couldn’t justify putting all of it in just one post.

All the way at the end of the road on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica you can find Manzanillo. Known for it’s kick ass nature reserve, this place really is quite the haven. A bit of a hike out but completely worth every footstep.
We hiked through small roads and dirt patches in Bataan, Costa Rica to find a small creek to spend our afternoon in (beer in tow). I felt like Indiana Jones, alone in the wilderness, only a few stray dogs following us. But before the washed out bridge, we found this decayed beauty on the side… Continue reading Photo Friday: HDR – Bataan, Costa Rica
Visiting Costa Rica has been a long time coming. So long, in fact, that we even dedicated over a month of our trip to it before we even arrived. That’s quite a commitment for a trip that had very little planning to begin with. As we got closer to Costa Rica, we really started getting… Continue reading The Wilds of Costa Rica: A Break from the Tourism
It has been a while since I’ve given you guys a nice old fashioned photo essay! I really didn’t know what to expect in regards to nature in Costa Rica. I really had my mind blown by some of the beautiful flowers found about. More than anything I’m so proud of my frog pictures. I… Continue reading Photo Essay: Nature in Costa Rica
This has to be my favorite HDR so far. I am starting to really get the hang of it (or so I think). We arrived to the top of this hill winded and exhilarated at the same time. We had managed to hike regardless of the weather and the gamble had worked out. The clouds… Continue reading Photo Friday: HDR – Montezuma, Costa Rica
I think my favorite way of getting around Central America definitely has to be by buses. Not only do you get the personality of riding on public transportation but you get the scenic route where ever you go. Whenever we are in a bus while in Costa Rica, I make sure that I get the… Continue reading Photo Friday: Instagram – On the Road, Costa Rica
