Another Addition to the Bucket List and why you should use AirBNB!

12 Aug

I’m constantly adding things to my bucket list and the other day I added travel to Costa Rica to the list!  It’s something I never really thought about but when a good friend mentioned it to me and how great it is I decided it need not be neglected from my life experiences.  The more I look into it, the more appealing it becomes.  How could I not want to go spend time surfing, riding horses, hiking waterfalls, swimming, and relaxing ocean side.  Or to even go spend some time on a working horse farm.  The possibilities are endless but now I know I want to go to Costa Rica : )

Another reason for sharing this specifically from my bucket list was to share an amazing travel website I’ve been perusing lately.  I have a really good friend who works for the San Francisco based company AirBNB which helps you find a more personalized experience on your travels.

AirBNB helps you find basically people’s homes to rent in destinations all over the world for MUCH cheaper than hotels and you typically get a kitchen, washer/dryer, etc.  Or you can book camp sites on the beach.  They have any and all options for accommodations.  On top of just accommodations, the people you choose to rent from will give you recommendations on great things/places to see, where to eat, and much more right near where you will stay.

You have the ability to connect with the people before you go so if you ended up not feeling comfortable you can just cancel.  I really can’t wait to utilize this newer company on my next travels!

    Looks beautiful! I’ve never thought of Costa Rica for my travel to-do list. But it does sound enticing now.

      Yes, I’d never really thought of it before either but why not! : )

    Costa Rica is definitely worth it. Cheap, friendly, tropical… what more could you want? And there’s ziplining!
