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.

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
