If I can do it, so can you!!!!
Yesterday, seven years ago I hopped on a plane to Costa Rica, trading my NYC heels for a surfboard and camera in Tamarindo. Seven years later, I am still in awe and disbelief that my former NYC corporate girl self had the gusto to leave behind a well paying job for a life chock full of unknowns. Samba to the Sea has always been about following my dreams and living life to the fullest…manifesting my dreams even before I knew about the power of manifesting. What has resulted is being able to surf everyday, chasing sunsets wherever I travel, and being able to make a living with one of my passions, photography.
But, it hasn’t been all beautiful waves and magical sunsets and that’s totally OK because that's life! It's messy, beautiful, hard, magical, crazy, etc. AND most importantly, life is what YOU make of it. Or as I like to say, the grass is greener where you water it! Who knows where the next seven years will take me (because as I’ve oh-so-importantly learned this past year, the Universe has her divine timing and the key is having unwavering faith that my dreams will manifest when the timing is right), and I sure am down to continue on this beautiful adventure and spread the magic of Mother Nature with you!!!
Andddddd if I can do it, so can you!!!!
If you’re dreaming of a change or are on the fence about going in a different direction, follow your heart / intuition…it knows the way! It’s all the power of your mindset and B E L I E V I N G!!! I also highly recommend reading Gabby Bernstein’s new book, Super Attractor; it has such actionable insights to help manifest your dreams!!!

Rainy Season > Dry Season
Yes, I said it!
I prefer Rainy Season in Costa Rica over Dry Season...and if you love breathtaking sunsets as much as I do, then you will too!
(How about that for some rhyming... 😉😂)
So why is Rainy Season better than Dry Season in Costa Rica?
Because Rainy Season = magical sunset season in Costa Rica!
In other words, rain squalls + clouds set the stage for dramatic sunsets just like this...

For a brief stretch during rainy season in Costa Rica the afternoon rains stop and the refreshing offshore summer winds come back for a mini summer / little summer, or what's called Veranillo de San Juan (verano means "summer" in Spanish).

If you've ever travelled to Costa Rica, then you most likely know + love the phrase "Pura Vida" as much as I do. But if your high school Spanish aka Español is a tad bit rusty, I probably have had you wondering what the heck I mean when...
