Highs & Lows
The spanish school "Intercultura" in Sámara located next to the beach are not to be missed!
Costa Rica is expensive and also hostels get fully booked fast. Book your accommodation before arriving!
Me and my boyfriend were planning a long journey to central- and south América for a long time but we had no immediate plans until a week before departure. We red a lot about Costa Rica and we felt it was a good country to start our journey. We were exited to fell the heat, learn Spanish, surf and explore the incredible nature.
Q & A
What would you have changed?
I would skip Puerto Viejo and stay longer in Guanacaste.
How was the food?
The Bakery in Puerto Viejo for awesome, big, breakfasts.
What tips would you give a friend?
Take lessons at the spanish school in Sámara, and also stay in a host family.
Sunscreen and mosquito repellent. It´s also good to pack a rainjacket when its rainy season, even though the rain lasts just for a couple of minutes.
Local busses works well. The shuttles are often very pricy and not worth it.
Sámara was over expectations!
