How does a city girl celebrate her birthday in a small Costa Rican pueblo? With champagne, gorgeous sunset views and a huge Italian dinner set in a romantic garden! My day started at noon when Brynn whisked me away for bubbly and a girls’ lunch on the beach at beautiful Café de Playa. It was the most relaxing afternoon! Then we had a little party at Pacifico, where a huge group of us drank wine, watched the sun set over the Pacific, and marveled at the belly dancer Alessandra’s dramatic performance. The grand finale?
Spoiling ourselves with red wine, delectable pastas and mouth-watering entrees at Via Italia. The LA girl in me had actually been worried about getting a reservation. When I was told of the restaurant’s gorgeous garden, I couldn’t imagine it not being full on a Friday night. Hello, Abby, it’s Coco. There was plenty of room for anyone craving dinner in the balmy open air! (Looking at the photos, it appears that I’ve successfully brought the “skinny arm pose” to Costa Rica! I’m very proud.) I passed out early, since Alicia and I were hitting the road at 7 am the next morning, heading towards the Monteverde cloud forests… The posting is coming soon!
