Is this Manuel Antonio?

Right on the border of it. The beaches just up the coast from this photo is part of Manuel Antonio

Ugh I can’t wait to go back to Costa Rica. Fucking best country on our planet

Yup. Been twice. Want to go back, maybe just move there.

Costa Rica is an explosion of color. The beaches around the western coast town of Quepos are no exception. When viewed from above, however, a different beauty unfolds - one where the jungle and ocean are seen colliding in breathtaking fashion. From the dense foliage of the peninsula to the gentle, white sand beaches, there is such simple, yet powerful beauty found on the coast.

Costa Rica's motto is "Pura Vida" meaning pure life. I believe this photo evokes that motto quite well. If interested in more photos, my IG is: nomad_kmc

Have always wanted to go to Costa Rica, it looks gorgeous. What would you suggest as the top 2 or 3 places to get the most out of a visit there?

Hmm... I’d say Manuel Antonio pictured near this photo is one of them, but my favorite spot was a little mountain lodge about 9,000 feet up near Tapanti National Park, east of the capitol. We spend several days walking the cloud forests, and looking for the elusive quetzal.

For a third spot, I think it’s worthwhile to go north and choose a volcano to explore - Arenal, Tenorio, or Rincón de la Vieja.

Thanks, those go on my bucket list!

Go try and stay somewhere rural for a little bit in the Valle Central - East of San José - because it's absolutely beautiful there. Make sure to cycle down the coast from Puerto Viejo de Talamanca in the south west if you can, bike hire is dirt cheap. To find actual tourists and most of the beaches you need to head to the west coast though. Nicoya Peninsula is nice enough but a bit of a pain to get to coming from somewhere like Puerto Viejo

I thought you meant the East Coast. Apparently nobody goes there
