Yesterday my first piece went up on The Travel Belles. This site really is a fantastic little source of personal tips from every corner of the world. I’m so proud to now call myself a Travel Belle and hope to bring you so many more pieces on my time in Costa Rica.
Where to go, what to do and where to stay in Costa Rica
Discover the sunny Caribbean side of Costa Rica
On the Caribbean side, Puerto Viejo in Limón is not to be missed. It has a really cool, laid back, hippy vibe and boasts some of the most beautiful beach areas in the country. It is less built up and commercialized than popular areas like Guanacaste, but this place can really hold its own. It is also a good bet for finding sun during Costa Rica’s rainy season (May through mid-November). I have never been happier than I was when in a hammock on Playa Cocles with a Cuba Libre in my hand. It’s the perfect place to relax. There are also some amazing national parks in this area, such as Cahuita and Parque Refugio Manzanillo. And to view sea turtle nesting sites, travel further north to Tortuguero from June to September.
