I’ve been going through my pictures from Costa Rica wishing I was back. I looked through all of the pictures from zip-lining and horseback riding this week. That was definitely my favorite part of the trip! Today I am sharing my easy guide to Costa Rica, specifically to the Playa Herradura area.
We stayed at the Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort. It was beautiful, from the rooms, to the pools, private beachfront, and restaurants. The breakfast buffet was amazing. We really enjoyed the onsite restaurants Bar Ocho, 18 & Greene, and ZOE.
We went zip-lining and horseback riding through the nearby Vista Los Suenos Rainforest Tours. At first I was absolutely terrified! After the first line I was able to relax I ended up having so much fun. It was definitely an exhilarating and once in a lifetime experience. Horseback riding through the jungle was also incredible and we stopped at a waterfall to cool off with a quick swim.
We were also lucky enough to take a boat over to Isla Tortuga, an hour off the coast of Playa Herradura. The island is breath-taking and once of the most incredible places I’ve ever been. We rode jet-skis around the island and explored the cool coves. Right before heading back on the boat, there was a double rainbow across the sky. Such an insane and beautiful experience, I will remember it for a lifetime!
One night we headed into Jaco and ate dinner at the nearby El Hicaco Restaurant, right on the beach. The meal and sunset over the water were amazing.
Overall it was such a fun trip and I would love to go back and explore more of Costa Rica. Please comment below and tell me your favorite places and things to do in Costa Rica! I can’t wait check them out next time!
