what should i pack for costa rica??

You guys… I’m going on vacation to Costa Rica!

It’s been entirely too long since I took some time off and recently this amazing start up called Anywhere reached out to me about a trip. I’ve always wanted to travel through Costa Rica, but had no idea where to even start when it came down to the planning stages. Thankfully, Anywhere is has taken the helm and is doing the planning for me and my boyfriend. We chatted a bit about the types of activities that would interest both of us (um, hello hot springs and snorkeling), plus they’ve also got a few surprises up their sleeves. I’ll be sharing allllll the details of my trip once I get back, but for now I need to figure out what to pack because I leave in less than 2 weeks!

Prepping for this trip feels like a bit of a weird shift in my mind — I’m wrapped in fleece and sweaters and thermal socks, but will be in a gorgeous tropical climate soon.

I. Cannot. Freaking. Wait.

I’m definitely planning to pack light and spend as much time as possible in my bikini. I’m thinking that I’ll toss in a pair of comfortable walking shoes, some breezy dresses, and my trusty cut-offs. Plus, tons of books.

Have you guys ever been to Costa Rica? I’d love any tips!

    Costa Rica could not be more amazing! I spent a month there in 2013 (July) and I’m constantly thinking about it to this day. My advice: if only for a couple of days, get out of the touristy areas and really spend some time in the “real” Costa Rica that the Ticans know. I lived in San Joaquin de Flores and I can’t tell you how beautiful it was. Make sure to plan a trip to a local farmer’s market one morning, or head to the large one in San Jose. You won’t regret it!

    P.S. The less connected to the world back at home you are, the more you will enjoy your trip. Have fun!
