Walking across the boarder of Costa Rica gave us our first backpacker’s badges of honor. It was here we met our smiling local bus driver, who had patience for days while driving our party bus to Tamarindo!
Tamarindo turned up, as we took over the nightlife and had “family” dinner on the beach. It was here that we had our first introduction to surfing, where we fell in love with the dualistic nature of Coasting Costa, party at night and surfing by day! We kept momentum and had our first introduction to zip-lining, and then mellowed out in the mud baths and hot springs.
The next day we headed to my favoUrite part of the trip, the surf town of Santa Teresa. Rated on of the top 10 best sunsets in the world, the pura vida lifestyle swept us away. Surfing by day was only topped by the amazing food served by night. The tour turned up as all 27 of us rented ATV’s and tour through the back roads of the jungle. Covered in mud we hiked to wicked waterfalls, where we faced our fears and did some rock jumping! Exhausted and belly’s sore from laughing, Santa Theresa gave us a moment to catch our breath and take in the beauty of Coasting Costa.
