So I can confirm that the joy of being in Costa Rica isn’t necessarily living in the capital San Jose, but more visiting the beautiful beaches and forest areas that Costa Rica is renowned for!
I went to Manuel Antonio last weekend to visit a couple of friends, and had a really wonderful time. It takes about 3.5 hours by bus to get there. I stayed at the hostel where my friend works and met lots of wonderful people. I visited some of my favourite restaurants and bars there (Barba Roja, Salsipuedes, Tiquicia and Z bar) as well as the beach and the Feria market.

I’m really glad I went and it was a good reminder to get my travelling shoes back on! I’m making plans to visit more of Costa Rica soon…
