Backpack Travel Tip #1

If you are planning to visit Costa Rica, you’ll want to make sure you pack lightly.   Why?  If you happen to be someone who enjoys the experience of immersing yourself fully in the culture of your exotic destination; Costa Rica offers several engaging outdoor activities.   Here at Dreamsea in Tamarindo Costa Rica, we offer several opportunities to experience the beach with surfing and surf lessons.  Additionally, we offer yoga classes to help travelers start or finish their day with clarity and peace of mind.   Packing lightly helps you declutter when on vacation so that you can have a clear mind to engage and be active in all of the activities available.   Not to mention, many hostel travel goers like to bring home knick-knacks and souvenirs from local businesses in Costa Rica.   Having a light backpack will allow you to take home more of that Costa Rican culture.

Keep in mind that we understand that some backpack travelers are only interested in relaxing and getting away from their everyday environment. If that is you, then Dreamsea Surf Camp in Tamarindo Costa Rica is a perfect destination.  At Dreamsea you can go at your own pace with beautiful sceneries and calm ocean breeze and peaceful sounds that provide a captivating experience for which you may never want to leave.

Bonus Tip:  If you have a drawstring backpack (you know those nylon backpacks that can easily fold up) these are great for bringing just the bare necessities with you out to the beach or the shops.  Lightweight and durable, nylon drawstring backpacks are going to help you stay organized while out on the beach or hiking around shops downtown.

Backpack Travel Tip #2
