romantic proposal on the beach in
Tamarindo
CostA Rica

Katie + Brett

Katie + Brett first met at a music festival in Brett’s hometown of New Orleans. The two of them hit it off, and soon Brett was giving Katie the local New Orleans experience, as Katie was studying at Tulane. Five years later, Katie + Brett landed in Costa Rica for another music festival. They had a great time dancing the nights away, and on the last day of the festival, Brett had something very special planned. As the sun was starting to set, Brett led Katie down to the beach and asked her to spend forever with him. It was everything Katie had dreamed of and more — a romantic proposal on the beach in Tamarindo Costa Rica. 

Congrats you two!

Tamarindo has a special way of bringing people together. Like Laura + Richie, who met each other in this tropical beach town a couple of years ago. I had the pleasure of knowing the two of them before they met each other, and the first time I saw them together, I could feel that they had something special. Fast forward to 2020, with Costa Rica’s borders closed and the whole world on lockdown because of the ‘Rona, COVID brought Laura + Richie even closer together.

The majority of family vacations in Costa Rica typically are for one week. But, there is so much to do and see in Pura Vidadise that the time goes by so fast. My first week long trip to Costa Rica, I definitely felt like I didn’t have enough time, so my second trip I booked for 10 days. And then my third trip…well I ended up packing up my NYC apartment and hopped a flight to Costa Rica for however long I wanted to!!!
