SINCE we’re in paradise why not stay? I grew up in Sweden where it’s pretty much freezing 8 months of the year and you’re kind of going crazy in the end of the winter. Partially because you’re out of vitamin E, partially because a sun break is always legitimate. Living in New York for a while you realize winter can be pretty rough too and the tickets down to Central America isn’t too bad at all. Last year me and mom decided to explore Costa Rica. We stayed in the very south point of CR in Quepos and Manuel Antonio National Park. Here you’re surrounded by monkey, reptiles and new beaches everyday ALL day long. In the evening you can go dancing salsa and in the morning fresh squeezed pineapple juice… We also had a lovely dinner in an old airplane from the Vietnamese war and I did surfing for my first time.
