Playa del Coco – Beach


Playa del Coco is by far my favorite town in Costa Rica and the beach doesn't disappoint either! The darker sand and calm waves surrounded by greenery makes it a perfect place to chill out. You can catch tons of boats and water sports here as well as restaurants, bars, and a nice walkway along the water. Here are some of my favorite pictures I

Pork Steak House, Liberia, CR


After hiking through the Lllanos de Cortez waterfall we definitely worked up an appetite. The closest city between the waterfall and where we were staying {Playas del Coco} was Liberia, so we stopped for a bite. Liberia isn't my favorite - very dirty and downtown like with lots of one way streets and tiny fast food joints and stores, but we did happen to stumble upon

Playa Flamingo, CR


Where we're at is pretty remote {Las Catalinas - Playa Danta, CR} and there's only 1 taxi driver that will come to this area so we haven't ventured outside too much. But in honor of the birthday princess {hehe} and Heath visiting from LA - we headed a few beach towns over to honor my birthday wishes - a sunset and a delicious meal. Part 1 Wish: Sunset Location:

Caliche’s Wishbone – Jaco, CR


After watching an episode about Jaco on the Travel Channel, I NEEDED to check out a few places they featured including Caliche’s Wishbone. This restaurant has been one of my favorites so far in Costa Rica - everyone knows I love a tuna poke but the mouthwatering wood oven stuffed potato has inspired me to bring a similar dish back to the US. I would return to

Pacifico Beach Club – Playa del Coco, CR


After looking at the menu for Pacifico on Tripadvisor, I was super excited to check out this place and enjoy the ocean view sunset {they’re located straight on the sand!} They used to be a members only beach club but are now open to the public – yippee! We headed over on Friday and enjoyed live music, happy hour, oceanfront sunset, and really fresh food. We

Hardrock Guanacaste – Playa del Coco, CR


After being in the middle of no where in Playa Dante for the past month, we were shocked to arrive in Coco and see this HUGE Hardrock in a large plaza {Pacifico}. Some of the guys in Las Catalinas told us about it but we kind of laughed it off, “we aren’t going to go there.” Guess what was the first place we ate at in

Cafe de Playa – Playa del Coco, CR


Coco is fun because there are so many different restaurants to explore {my favorite!} This boutique hotel is popping with pink {another favorite}, friendly staff, and perfect oceanfront views but the restaurant is lacking with overpriced and average food. We ordered a tuna tartare, stuffed mushrooms, and a seafood platter – all were pretty disappointing. If you’re in the area looking for a chic place, I

Java 654 Coffee Shop – Playa del Coco, CR


Stumbled upon this little gem when the internet went out at our apartment during work hours and Java Coffee saved us {with internet + caffeine}. Java 654 is a great little coffee shop in the front of the Las Palmas neighborhood with a welcoming staff, fresh coffee and food, and great internet! They have indoor and outdoor seating, a book exchange, and games to play. They

Bahia del Sol – Playa Potrero, CR


Saturday was Michael’s birthday so we ventured out of Las Catalinas for a day of relaxation and fun! It’s hard to get out of Las Catalinas or around the area without a car – there’s only 1 taxi here and he’s sketched out on us 2 times now {ugh!} After a rough start and finally getting a taxi sent by the hotel, we were on our

Hiking at Las Catalinas, CR


Life at Las Catalinas, CR is beautiful - but one of my favorite parts of this little town are all of the different hiking and biking trails surrounding us with unparalleled views. I'll continue to update this post as we hike more but here are some of the top spots I've seen so far. Enjoy the gifts of nature <3 XO, Bri
