After spending 3 days in the mountains, I was ready to hit the beach. The main reason we wanted to visit Costa Rica was the beach! We needed vitamin D so badly after having the worst winter ever!
Driving down the mountains into the coast was amazing! I got very excited when it started to get very hot inside the car, I knew we were close to the beach.
After checking into our accommodation (more on that later), we changed into our beach clothing and drove down to the beach. It was amazing to feel the sand in my toes again. I felt my mood change quickly to a very positive one. I ran up to the ocean and I felt like I was home.
