Beach Hopping the Nicoya Peninsula

BY CAILIN BURKE

For our last few days in Costa Rica we wanted to just relax on the beach after packed days of rainforest hiking and adventure activities. So we headed to the Nicoya Peninsula on the Northwest Coast which is known for their beaches. Basically every town on the coast has it’s own beach so we wanted to visit as many as possible and ended up hitting three of them! We started at Playa Brasilito which was the longest beach and perfect if you want to walk all along the shoreline (which is what we did during the sunset!) Connected to Playa Brasilito is Playa Conchal so it was easy just to go from one to the other!

Smartling Cultural Fashion

When Smartling, a translation software company, asked us to show our own version of multicultural style, we were so excited because it’s the perfect challenge for us! As our mom is from the Philippines, we have some items from there and throughout our grandma’s travels with the Peace Corps, we have gotten clothes from South and Central America as well. When looking through our closets we discovered we actually have a ton of items from different countries! We try to incorporate these articles into our outfits as often as possible and Smartling wanted us to share them with you guys! As Smartling helps companies translate website content into many languages, it was a perfect fit! So Tara and I dug through our wardrobes to find outfits inspired by the trends in different countries.
