For years I have dreamed of traveling to Costa Rica, a country in Central America that I know to be vegan & yoga -friendly.

A country that is a good performer on environmental sustainability and is home to rich wildlife and plants.
A country well-suited for the outdoor enthusiast. BONUS: there are beautiful beaches.
As far as I’m concerned, “everything’s included” 

I have often thought of Costa Rica as being the place I run off to and get married… or honeymoon.
Turns out Costa Rica is the place I’ll spend my 30th birthday.

Our trip is booked. (!!!)
We’re staying in Dominical, a small village on the Central Pacific coastline.

We will be at a cozy, boutique hotel Cuna Del Angel for 3 nights where we will a couples massage and an infinity pool. The rooms are richly decorated with Colonial and Asian details, all with ocean and jungle views.

The remaining 3 nights will be spent at the Waterfall Villas where we will practice yoga and enjoy a private, vegan chef. The rooms here are designed to balance of the elements using authentic Feng Shui architecture design. Each room overlooks a waterfall, and ours will have it’s own private meditation garden.

Hopefully, we will visit Manuel Antonio National Park (as recommended), which is well known for it’s beautiful beaches and hiking trails. In 2011, Manuel Antonio was listed by Forbes among the world’s 12 most beautiful national parks.

I’d also like to visit Jaco, which apparently is more of a “party” town….. 

I’m stoked. 

On my actual birthday, I will be in Orlando, Florida for work. My girlfriends & I plan to travel in early and visit Blizzard Beach, a waterpark (home to some of the tallest free-falling slides in the world!!)

While in Florida, I might even get lucky enough to see grandma & grandpa for a night. I’m hoping to take them to a vegan restaurant in Orlando.

Cheers to 37 days left of my 20’s. This girl is getting old(er).
