Costa Rica - The New Years Roadtrip

Start the New Year off with a road trip through Costa Rica, and leave 2021 and the cold winter far far behind.  We cruise through the Nicoya region, starting with the famous surf town of Tamarindo, where we’ll enjoy hot beaches and sand between the toes.

From Tamarindo we head to Santa Teresa, the chillest Surfside beach town to take in more of the good life, with surfing, hikes and more New Years festivities!  Also, we can take surf lessons on the amazing surf breaks suitable for any skill level.

Finishing off in Monteverde before flying out from San Jose, experience the other things Costa Rica is famous for, jungles and exotic animals!  Sloths, monkeys and an array of colourful tropical birds. Not to mention, adrenaline fuelled activities like bungee, ATVing and rappelling down waterfalls!

Imagine bringing in 2022 partying on the Costa Rican coast, relaxing  with a cold drink in hand enjoying the fact that you are exactly where you want to be (and not at home) - defining the meaning of ‘Pura Vida!’
