A hot christmas for me
Geschreven door Jill Shaw
Costa Rica is the most beautiful place to spent X-mas and New Year.
I grew up in a surfing kinda world where my dad was completely passionate about surfing and the fashion business that comes with it. My parents discovered Costa Rica when they were about my age. They fell in love with everything about it so they've been coming back every year ever since. For me this is just home. I partly grew up in Belgium but I spent a lot of the time here, in and out the water. My love for the excotics is way too real!
Words can’t really explain why this is the most beautiful place, you got to experience it yourself. Of course the surfing here is amazing, and the nature and views are breathtaking. There's so much adventure here and you bump into the wildest animals. People make the most joyful music and they smile non stop. They are so kind and they are living life to the fullest. Pura vida means 'pure life' and I really believe we can all learn from that.
These things are surely enough to convince you to plan your next holiday to this magical place. But when is the coolest time to visit?
Ever since I was little I’ve been spending Christmas in Tamarindo. Of course there were a few times I celebrated the holidays in my hometown, where it’s the traditional family kinda X-mas... But here, it’s just so unique!
We always do a little sunset surfsession, then we have an apéro all together on the beach. After that, we go back to our house in the jungle and we make the craziest tropical dinner. By nightfall the beach is full of cosy bonfires and reggae music, cool people you know and the most beautiful fireworks! It’s just.. the best X-mas experience ever!
I know there’s no snowman or typical Christmastree, but we have sparkly palmtrees everywhere and the sun on our back. After that, it’s party time and who is better at throwing a party then the locals here? That’s my perfect Christmas!
