Costa Rica was an absolute dream. We did a home exchange in Playa Langosta (the smaller town about which is less than a mile from Tamarindo, a slightly larger surf town) and used our Companion Pass to get there. Thanks to great deals, we used less than 20,000 Southwest Miles to get there (originally over 40k miles round trip! We were refunded nearly half of our points).
We spent the week eating local seafood, walking the beach, playing in the ocean and catching an amazing sunset each night. I'll write more details about our trip later, but for now, here's a photo diary of the trip. It's so pretty and untouched!
Seriously, how beautiful is Costa Rica? We were so lucky that our condo gave us sunrise & sunset views and we could see everything from the 5th floor! The country is so beautiful, I can't wait to visit again someday.
Have you ever been to Costa Rica?
