places to go

at the beginning of the year i decided that this was the year paris and i would travel. i have been here for coming up on two years and have only been to a handful of different spots in the country. so now that we are somewhat more financially able to travel .. we are doing it! if you've been following along you know that over holy week we went to la fortuna and the arenal volcano. here are a few of the other places i would like to visit before the year is over!

both ticos and tourists have been telling me that santa teresa is a must see! they say the white sand beaches are some of the most beautiful in the entire country.

the waterfalls at montezuma have caught my eye for quite some time now! montezuma is one spot in costa rica that is still fairly untouched by large building projects with more of a relaxed village feel. this place is on the top of my list!

and last, cahuita, limon. cahuita is on the caribbean side of costa rica which i also have yet to vist! some places of limon are not the nicest spots costa rica has to offer but i hear that cahuita is a must see. and i hope that i do!

if i could, i would spend all of my time traveling to every nook and cranny of this country (and others!). but alas, work and paying bills unfortunately take precedence. but i am going to make a point to get more weekend trips in if it is the last thing i do!

If I was able to do it, I would also spend my life traveling every nook and cranny of the world :( If only real life allowed for that... Good luck with your travel adventures this year! I'm looking forward to seeing where you end up.

We moved to England so we could travel Europe and I understand about finances. We are hoping soon this year to go visit other places, even if its as close as Wales. Hopefully you go to Paris soon, we went last year on our Anniversary and I cannot wait to go back.

girl, I totally know what you mean. I would travel the world if I could. Thankfully, that is something that my husband and I agree on, so we save up for vacations. Makes them that much more worth it.

I loved Montezuma and Cahuita! I was traveling in Costa Rica for three years a couple of years ago and I am still mesmerized by the beauty of the nature! Enjoy and happy traveling!! :)

Oh my, I wish I could just give you a ring right now! Santa Teresa was AMAZING!! I was amazed at the beauty. The people were fantastic and the food was to die for. And the best past is that you could totally do it on a budget. Tons of cute looking hostels and lots of fun people. We drove to Monezuma for a few hours to shop, lunch and beach. Looked awesome too but I think you could spend much more time there than I did.

I just posted pictures of Arenal and hope to post pictures of Santa Teresa soon!
