Los Cerros, Provincia de Guanacaste, Liberia, Costa Rica
Not far west of the Pan American Highway, just off of Hwy 21, if memory serves, in the city of Liberia, Costa Rica, sits a nondescript abode. It doesn't stand out much from the surrounding homes with its white walls, tin roof, and leaning wooden...

Playa Guiones, Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica
After a morning surf session on perfect 2-3 ft. curlers, the wind picks up and turns the break into something else. That's when it is time to stretch the legs and take a stroll along the peaceful Playa Guiones. Each day here starts this way, and...
Save Place
Provincia de Puntarenas, Pavones, Costa Rica
I volunteered here for almost a month and had an amazing time. You can also just stay as a guest, but staying a little longer to participate with other volunteers made for an incredibly rewarding experience. Described as a "rustic yoga center and...

I might be biased because I became engaged on the beaches of Playa Guiones, in Nosara Costa Rica, but this place is heavenly. I spent the month practicing yoga at Nosara Yoga Institute and when I wasn't doing yoga I spent the rest of the time on...
Save Place
Despite the restaurant's name, you don't come here for the moon, you come here for the sun(set). After my first visit to Costa Rica in May 2003 my efforts to view the sunset were thwarted by the torrential downpours that define rainy season in...
Save Place
Guanacaste Province, Tamarindo, Costa Rica
I took a boat trip out to Witch's Rock and surfed the biggest and best waves of my life. I barely slept the night before because I knew the waves were going to be a challenge for someone at my skill level. After a few bad wipe outs on the biggest...
Save Place
Guanacaste Province, Bagaces, Costa Rica
While most people travel to Costa Rica for the jungle ziplining, waterfall rappelling, and famous surf beaches, traveling to rural villages like Bagaces in Guanacaste can have its own rustic charm. On the streets of Bagaces, you won't find any...
Save Place
Playa Santa Teresa, Provincia de Puntarenas, Costa Rica
This eclectic cafe offers delicious fresh food, great people watching, an up close look at Canadian artist Margriet Zwart's studio (owner of the studio / cafe), and a fun community of locals and travelers soaking up the "pura vida" lifestyle. If...
Save Place
Manuel Antonio, Provincia de Puntarenas, Quepos, Costa Rica
North of oft-visited Manuel Antonio on the Pacific side of Costa Rica, is a small cove with a public beach by the name of Biesanz. The beach is hidden from the cliffs high above where resorts are like stars in the sky, numerous and crowding. Hike...
Save Place
Puntarenas Province, Costa Rica
Chef Norman Roqhuett Mata rules Santa Teresa’s top kitchen, Nectar, at the Florblanca hotel. Local sourcing is the norm, and most of Mata’s ingredients are grown less than 20 miles away. The chef hosts full-moon dinners at his favorite organic...
Save Place
Malpais, Puntarenas Province, Costa Rica
The original farm-to-table eatery in the area, Mary’s Restaurant, lies just down the road from the fishing harbor in Mal País village. With its pool table, polished concrete floors, and chalkboard menu, it feels like a pub. But along with such...
