How about a 'lil virtual vacation to paradise?


So you were all set to hop on a plane to your tropical paradise. And then the rules for international travel into the US changed again. 🙈 (As of Jan 26th, all international arriving travelers into the US are required to take a COVID test + show a negative result within three days of their flight.)

Cancelled plans, postponed plans (x100)…heck it’s easier to make no plans at all right now! And to rub salt in the wound, it’s winter! Record setting rain on the West Coast, snowstorms sweeping across the East, and freezing temps in the South! 🥶

I get it, I’m tired of ‘Rona life too. My mom was supposed to visit me in Costa Rica last year just as the world was going into quarantine, and our plans for her to visit during my birthday last week were postponed…again. 

And while I don't have magical powers to instantly teleport you to the beach here in Costa Rica, I can virtually help you bring the beach to you with some of my favorite photos from Pura Vidadise!!!



P.S. If these photos simply aren't enough and you're in some serious need of curing your ‘Rona winter blues, stay tuned because I have a very special surprise for you here!

What’s the weather like in Costa Rica you ask?

Well, that all depends on where in Costa Rica you are. In fact, Did you know that even though Costa Rica is the size of West Virginia or Denmark, it has 20 microclimates?
