What To Pack For A Costa Rica Getaway

Beautiful beaches with rolling waves and a peaceful atmosphere, Costa Rica is the ultimate getaway spot. Outdoors is where you will be, so it’s important to pack along the right things. Our Pura Vida sweeps is in full swing, and I’ve had to catch myself from daydreaming about the sun and the surf.

Rachel Brathen, the inspiring yogi who will be joining us on the trip, is no newbie to Costa Rica. We thought it would be fun to hear what a knowledged traveler would bring along with her, so we asked Rachel to pick out some essentials that she would take along.

1) A super cute bikini is a must! I’d bring one that has a great fit so you can wear it on the surfboard. The Solid Bungee Back Top and the Monique Bottom looks perfect!

2) You’ll be living in a maxi dress so bring one that you adore! My favorite is the  Clemintine Crochet Dress.

3) A smaller bag like the Dreamweaver Crossbody for nights on the town and after-beach cocktails.

4) The perfect sandal. The Sonar Peg is great for cruising around town to get a smoothie after yoga class and it works on the beach, too.

5) Stay shaded and sunburn-free with the Phoenix Raffia Straw Hat.

Just looking at those gorgeous tropical outfits makes me long for clear blue waters, a sunny lazy day in a hammock rocked by ocean breezes listening to the waves rolling in and out….
