Nicoya Peninsula Adventure + Surf and Yoga
My trip to Costa Rica was so much fun.
Accommodations were lovely and so was the food!
Our host was super knowledgeable and arranged some amazing day trips and activities— a good balance between challenging and relaxing.
I was a little worried to try surfing for the first time, but we were in good hands and I’m so glad I took the opportunity.
It was really nice being surrounded by other young women looking for something a bit different. I met some great friends that I hope I get to travel with again in the future.

Costa Rica + Guatemala Explorer
Last April/May, I had the pleasure of spending one week in Costa Rica and one week in Guatemala with Origin Travels. I can honestly say this was one of the best vacations of my life. Thanks to Brit's fantastic itineraries, I was able to show up and enjoy some amazing adventures.
I first spent a week in Costa Rica located in a remote and peaceful peninsula. The property is stunning with an outdoor yoga studio, infinity pool and a baby monkey rescue center on site. Chef Randy cooks delicious food (and will meet any dietary restrictions!) and Jeremy was always available to answer any questions we had about the local area. Our week was spent doing morning yoga sessions (suited to both beginners and advanced!), followed by either waterfall hikes or 2hr surf lessons (one-on-one!)....
I will never forget my time in Central America...travelling with Origin Travels allowed me to be truly present throughout the entire two weeks - I felt very safe and taken care of - and I returned well rested and inspired :):) Highly recommend!!!
