Costa Rica boasts vast expanses of biological diversity and elaborate eco-systems. The pristine coastline is home to a growing number of upscale luxury resorts, yet because the country is committed to preserving nature, the landscape of volcanoes, rain forests, beaches and waterfalls remain intact.
As you prepare for your grand entrance into the wild paradise of Costa Rica, choose a few designer staples that will keep your luggage light. We’ll show you how to be prepared for a luxury 5-star dinner one day and an adventure into the wildlife-rich tropical rainforests the next. The necessities include a LBD, designer handbag, classic bathing suit and an adventure ensemble.
How To Do Your 5-Star Vacation to Costa Rica in Style
Essential to your wardrobe no matter what country youâ€™re in, the little black dress is going to be your go-to when sipping champagne and gazing at the star-filled night sky. The Versace Greca One-Shoulder Mini Dress will have you feeling on top of the world in the happiest place on earth. The Italian-made 100 percent silk dress is easy to travel with and can be worn on more than one occasion. The dress features a stunning Greca frieze in rhinestones at the hem.
Be prepared for cool evenings with a classic jacket to shield you from the chill off the coast. A chic trench coat is best because you can cover up in any condition. Whether rain or shine is in the forecast, you’ll always be taken care of. Try Saint Laurent classic tailored double-breasted trench.
There’s nothing more essential than the perfect designer tote when travelling to far off destinations. This is your go-to, your carryall that quite literally carries it all. With handbags, it’s about quality over quantity. Purchasing one classic designer tote made of the finest craftsmanship is an investment that makes sense. Choose a beautiful Coach leather tote as your go-anywhere designer travel bag, and you’ll get several years of luxurious use out of it.
When choosing a swimsuit for your 5-star vacation to Costa Rica, consider what types of adventures you will be going on. If you plan on a rafting and snorkelling adventure followed by lounging poolside, the Seafolly Goddess Mailot Soft Cup Halter Top One Piece is ideal. If laying on the sparkling sands of the beach is your idea of adventure, the Proenza Schouler bandeau bikini set in white ruched microfiber will be more your style. And if you just can’t decide on a bikini or one piece, then go for one of each. They will be put to good use on this trip and for many summers to come.
Patagonia Rain Coat
Your adventure day requires appropriate high-quality clothing in order to see the rougher natural beauty of the area. As you fly through the rainforest on a zip line adventure or traverse through the mangrove wetlands along the Sierpe River, proper adventure attire is in order. Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes in layers when navigating the tropical rainforests. The elevation changes can bring temperature changes and you don’t want to be caught off guard so try a Patagonia Rain Shadow rain coat. You’ll also need water-friendly shoes like waterproof Keen sandals.
Whether your trip takes to the stunning shores of the Osa Peninsula or the lush Northern Puntarenas region, your 5-star vacation to Costa Rica is sure to offer unique adventure, lazy days and a pura vida vibe with memories to last a lifetime.
