Your travel route:

Day 1: San Josè

San Josè, Costa Rica - KILROYThe trip begins in the capital of Costa Rica. A good idea would be to arrive to San Josè a few days before the trip so that you have sufficent time to explore the city. A fun fact about San Josè is that instead of yellow, the taxis can be recognised by its bright red color. In the evening the city really comes to life with its many dance clubs and bars, so get ready to shake those hips!

Visit Puerto Viejo de Talamanca in Costa Rica - KILROYFrom San Josè you will travel to beautiful Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, located on Costa Rica's Caribbean coastline. Embrace the reggae rhythms and lifestyle, and enjoy lazy days on the beach in this tropical paradise. If you want to be active you can rent a boogie/surf board and hit the waves!

Day 4, 5 & 6: Bocas del Toro

Bocas del Toro, Panama - KILROY
