Get in the Pura Vida Spirit!

Did someone say ROAD TRIP?  (yes full disclosure you will be in a car for a total of 10 hours broken up in 1-2 hour increments for the travel to both destinations over the course of 4 days. La Fortuna Area and Toruguero National Park)  I may also add we will be on a boat 2 hours each way from the island that is part of the adventure.  


Costa Rica boasts some of the most lushes rainforests and bio diverse lands. Located in Central America, Costa Rica is made up mainly of protected jungle lands teeming with all types of wildlife.  Volcanoes, Rain Forests, and sloths OH MY!


With over half a million species, 25% of its lands have turned into National Parks.  Become one with nature and adventure with me for my birthday on a road trip through the this magical landscape.  Tantalize your taste buds with some Latin flare gourmets, meet some locals, and hope your phone isn't stolen by the monkeys. 

I think it is about time to live in our own Pura Vida Spirit!

Getting on a boat to travel to Tortuguero National Park kicks off this road tripping adventure.  Heading back North to see several other National Parks like Poas and Arenal Volcano Parks. YES Arenal is still an active volcano! 

Searching for sloths, perhaps a night cap in the jungle, bathing in thermal hot springs, and falling asleep to the sound of jungle animals is music to my ears. 

Watching as many sunrises and sunsets throughout the Costa Rican jungles and seeing the world from a different perspective on the hanging bridges is my idea of magic.

Never adventured with Wanderlust Explorations?
