Colourful Costa Rica

Words &Photographs by Erica Brenci
 

When my husband and I visited Costa Rica for a Destination Wedding for a couple from Los Angeles, we also got to enjoy 10 days of the Pacific Coast. We stayed in Tamarindo and we choose a very nice and cozy Hotel, Villa Macondo a very typical tropical hotel with rooms and apartments inside a tropical garden with a swimming pool.

What you find in Costa Rica is a full immersion into nature, you will be among monkeys and other tropical animals, tropical trees and plants, wild beaches with a wide ocean view. We visited the beaches of Playa Grande, Playa Langosta, from Tamarindo. When we went to Playa Avellana the landscape was breathtaking: the long beach with surfers at sunset was like a painting! The pacific is famous among surfers and is very populated from the young and old surfers from all over the world.

We suggest to relax in tamarindo for a sunset with a cocktail at Nogui’s, a beach front restaurant a coffee bar, and enjoy a piapa fria (a fresh green coconut) at Playa Conchal. We enjoyed tasting so many tropical fruit juices and plates of rice and ceviche.

“Pura vida” are the two words that best represent the local life. Interpretation could be like “pure life”, “take it easy”, “enjoy life”, “all good”, “purity in life”, “hello”, “goodbye”, “this is life!” and many many more. I think it’s the best way to live – enjoying what you have and what you are!!

About Erica
I’m a Destination wedding Photographer based in Italy and traveling all over the world. I love to shoot weddings  and lifestyle in general, I love to travel, to meet new people and new cultures. I love animals and nature in general but what better represent my soul are sunny locations, a good dog, my lovely husband, my family and staying with people – enjoying good times, good food and good wine. I smile always because heaven helps the happy. And if I can, I try to share this spirit when someone is in need of good vibes and a positive soul.
