Costa Rica: The Pacific Coast in 3 Days


Traveling for some is leisure, for others a necessity. It becomes part of your lifestyle. It fuels your creativity, and it stimulates your senses. Also, it creates memories and personal connections. That’s how I feel when I travel; disconnected from my daily routine, invigorated! Discovering and learning from other cultures; their values and their customs, the way they see life. It expands my mind, and it widens my perspective. Full of expectations and excitement, my friend Carol and I planned a visit to Costa Rica, a country without an army, pristine beaches and exotic rainforests. Here my list of things to do. Follow my journey in a three days itinerary.



A makeup alternative for travel lovers


During our recent trip to Costa Rica, last November, Angelica and I suffered from smudged eyes. Whether it was from sweat, humidity, tears, or just plain oily lids, whatever the cause, it was far from flattering. After we had returned, we were in search of waterproof makeup products that can be used daily and it doesn’t smudge in warmer weather to take to our next trip.
