Planning Costa Rica – 2 weeks and counting




I’ll be off to Costa Rica on May 12, sooner than it seems!  It’ll be just us two girls, me and my good friend Michelle.

It’s going to be another one of those trips where I planned out the itinerary thanks to excel 🙂 but will end up with us just sort of going with the flow, those are the best!

So far I booked all the hotels, the rental car (we’re driving like 20 hours total around Costa Rica), flights and am either going to book ziplining now or when we get there.

This whole trip is going to be self led and it is going to be quite an adventure! Originally, I was thinking I would just bring a back pack, and mostly just wear my swimsuit and shorts all the time, but I figured, this is a RELAXING vaca, not a real backpacking trip, like it will be in Italy in September, so I splurged and got check in, at least I’ll be able to bring any emergency items that I always forget, like bug spray and sunscreen!
