Pura vida – Pure life – is that what you can find in Costa Rica?

ROAD TRIP! We planned 3 weeks of adventure in Costa Rica but the trip ended up to be so much more than that. Taking os closer and further to places we had not imagined. You will also find the answer to the many timed asked question is Costa Rica Expensive?

“You will here people saying it everywhere..” that was what we where told. But actually not that often if you ask me. I might have said it a bit more often than the locals and maybe not always in the right context. But hey it’s kind of cool! And I was told you could use it everywhere.

Road trip

For any cool road trip you need a car! So we rented one for all 23 days. What a way to live life! You feel so free and the surroundings you drive trough it is like a movie set! I will share all my do’s and dont and how it all turned out with renting a car right here at my rent a car post.

We had 3 nights in San Jose, 2 nights in La fonturna, 1 night at lake Arenal, 2 nights at playa del coco and then spontaneously we drove to the boarder of Nicaragua.
