Daydream of the Week: Pan de Azucar, Costa Rica

Sugar Beach Costa Rica resortThe morning after I landed in Costa Rica, I was off for a weekend adventure at a new (to me) beach, Pan de Azucar. It was about an hour from Coco, near many of the beaches I used to go to while I was living in Costa Rica: Playa Danta, Brasilito, Conchal, and Playa Flamingo, all on the Pacific coast. It was gorgeous! We had a stunning house overlooking the ocean at the adorable Sugar Beach Hotel, my new favorite Costa Rica resort. Eight, yes eight, of us drove up for a girls’ weekend. How often does that happen? I just might have more friends here in CR than I do in Las Vegas! We didn’t do much — snacks on our patio, walks on the beach, sunning at the pool. The lush grounds were just how I like them: dense trees and foliage that makes everything about the jungle beaches so peaceful. Enormous iguanas roamed the property, and the flowering trees were just as I remembered. Sun, blue skies, perfect sand, tons of friends…

I don’t call this country paradise for nothing!

  1. You’ve got me thinking I might need to move to the Pacific coast of Costa Rica for a few months… or a few years 🙂

  2. What a cute name for a beach. I need to head to Costa Rica with you someday!

  3. Cheryl says:

    Love having you back!!!!

  4. One of the things I missed the most about being stable in one place are my all girls weekend trips. About six or eight of us, every few months or so, would drive to the Pacific coast and do nothing (to get away from life and the guys). A perfect paradise (just like yours) for a few days.
