Recently I had the pleasure of taking a new 2013 Ford Fusion to NYC! The Ford Fusion is most definitely for performance minded drivers. Read my FULL review of the 2013 Ford Fusion HERE!
February 2013 saw me spending a lot of time in the Nicoya peninsula in beautiful Costa Rica. I was lucky to visit Panama during my time in South America. Panama is incredible!
When I traveled to Costa Rica, I stayed a couple nights in San Jose, and spent the majority of my time surfing in Santa Teresa and Playa Carmen. When I first arrived in Santa Teresa Costa Rica, immediately the first thing I did was surf . Surf in Costa Rica is a magical experience. Sometimes it is just me and the birds, (literally!) – floating out in the ocean. I spent a lot of time at a phenomenal beach house with a gorgeous view of the pacific ocean. The infinity pool showed us a spectacular view of the sunset from high in the mountain side. I can’t wait to go back soon . I definitely did a lot of surfing (sometimes 4 hours a day!) and my surf skills improved greatly. Big thank you to Simone who taught me a LOT and for arranging a photo shoot with photographer Antonio Russo. I had a fun time shooting. Many mornings consisted of watching the sun rise with yoga at the ocean. I ate the best food. During the week, our friend Tyler would cook delectable foods like ceviche or a mixed meal of fish, steak, chicken, veggies, rice and more. Ty often cooked for 10 or twelve of us and I swear on one occasion there must have been 7 pounds of guacamole. Ty is the bombest chef around! On top of the exceptional food I ate, I spent a night dining at fabulous and beautiful Brisas del Mar in Santa Teresa. I ate the best Mahi Mahi with Korma I’ve ever tasted.
Excursions were plenty! I went snorkeling with Ryan – and saw a Spotted Moray Eel while snorkeling. One day we visited Rio Bongo with friends where we had a blast spending the day in the sunshine and floating down the lazy river into the ocean. I had been to Rio Bongo the day before with Kolton where we swam further up the river. I thought Kolton was pulling my leg when he picked up a stick and poked around for crocs before we jumped in the river until the next day when Ryan informed me that there “may be crocodiles up the river – that way,” pointing to the exact spot Kolton and I swam in the day before. ha. I also visited the waterfalls at Montezuma… Check it out!
I plan to visit in 2014 for more months. Costa Rica is truly one of the best places.
