Costa Rica: Living la Pura Vida in Playa Grande (Jan 28 to Feb 5, 2015)

How did I spend 8 days with Steve in Playa Grande, Costa Rica? Walking the beach, watching pelicans and terns soar over the waves, searching for shells, exploring tidepools, playing in the surf, searching for tracks of nesting leatherback turtles, drinking fruity cocktails and local beer, eating delicious food, including lots of local seafood, meeting Steve’s wonderful friends who are both locals and expats, taking siestas in the heat of the day, enjoying fabulous sunsets….in short, embracing la pura vida. Which after all the packing and planning I did in the weeks before leaving the US, was exactly what I needed! Some of you know that sitting still is tough for me but here, it was easy, likely due to the company and the amazing location. Steve’s place is beautiful and very close to the beach. Check it out!

If you get the chance, visit Playa Grande and live la pura vida!
