Costa Rica On Our Mind

This country is one that I have yet to travel to. The only bit I’ve seen is when I climbed to the peaks of neighboring Nicaragua and caught a view of the distant coastline, outlined by mountain tops standing high in the sun. At the end of this month though, I have been given the opportunity to check Costa Rica off my list.

As you all may know, we hosted the Pura Vida Getaway sweeps where 10 lucky winners will get to travel to Costa Rica and join yogi Rachel Brathen for a week of yoga, surfing and wellness. In order to document this trip of a lifetime, a small team and I will be along for the ride. From the moment we touch down in Nosara to the last night we have in the beautiful Villa Cortes Nosara Retreat Center, I will be there with my camera, capturing the moments to be shared with you all here on the blog. Words cannot express how excited I am to have this opportunity, and I hope you will all follow along in the journey with us. Until then, I leave you with a few behind the scenes images shot by Thomas Northcut while on the set of our May catalog, shot in Costa Rica. Enjoy, and get ready for the adventure!
