My parents were both born, raised and married in Argentina before moving to Canada and having me and my sister. My dad has a sister who ended up moving to Costa Rica and getting married over there, and his other sister moved over with her as well. So although I am of Argentinean decent, I have family in Costa Rica as well.
I have been to Costa Rica many times, and it was mostly when I was younger when I would go on the Christmas holidays or Summer Vacations with my dad to visit my family. I have so many fond memories of playing on the beach until sunset, and sitting round a bon fire in the sand singing to the stars with my aunts and cousins.
Costa Rica will always hold a special place in my heart.
Before I began travelling the rest of the world however, I made it a habit to visit my cousin Maria Pia every year around the same time (Spring) and would spend about a month in Costa Rica exploring. She would always take me around to the most beautiful mountains, and we would watch the most majestic sunsets I have ever seen.
This was all before I began really documenting my travels around the world, and taking professional photos and videos, but I wanted to share some of my Costa Rica photos from over the years anyways. Just to give a little taste of the beauty this country holds.
These photos are from one of the last times I visited Costa Rica. My dad comes from a family of 5, him and his brother live in Canada, his two sisters live in Costa Rica, and another sister lives in Argentina. Being that they are spread all over the world, it had been over 20 years since all 5 siblings had been together at the same time, so for New Years they finally planned and comitted to being together and celebrating in Costa Rica!
We rented an amazing home right on the beach on top of a mountain and had an amazing time. There was an infinity pool on the roof, and on the balcony there was a hot tub. Around the house was a lazy river pool. It was amazing!
These photos are of some beautiful bridges I came across while visiting an island in Costa Rica. These bridges led the path that many of the children there took on a daily basis to get to school. They are old and broken down, and probably very dangerous according to our standards, but beautiful nonetheless.
