WHERE IN THE WORLD
COSTA RICA, CENTRAL AMERICA
Best known for its beaches, volcanoes, and biodiversity and with roughly a quarter of the country made up of protected jungle and teeming with wildlife, Costa Rica was the perfect place for Travel by Lillingston’s Laura. Starting in the capital of San Jose, Laura then spent two weeks exploring. From the rainforests and the Thermal River of Guanacaste at the foot of the Miravalles Volcano to the village of Las Catalinas and the Papagayo Peninsula. She went onto the National Parks of Manuel Antonio and the remote coastal beaches of Uvita and the Osa Peninsula.
THE REASON WHY
Travel by Lillingston’s Laura spent the first week of her trip at Remote LA learning about all about Latin American properties. Set on the beachside village of Las Catalinas, the travel show was a unique insight into the host of beautiful properties Central America has to offer.
THE STAR DUST
The Sunsets, the wildlife, the kindness of the local people and their appreciation for the environment had to be the stardust of the trip. As the biggest exporter of oxygen, Costa Rica counteracts the CO2 emissions of other countries. It is one of the most biodiverse places in the world and home to 5% of the world’s plants and animals despite only a small land mass. Waking up to the howler monkeys and any of the 921 species of birds living in this beautiful country was just amazing!
THE WORLD SAID
“It is without a doubt the most beautiful place I’ve ever been – I would be back there tomorrow given half the chance!”
