Packing Guides

What’s in my Suitcase for Costa Rica - featuring Beachly

by Jenna Bengivenga

Well Traveled has partnered with Beachly to get packing for Costa Rica!

Nestled in between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, Costa Rica is home to twelve different ecosystems, incredibly vast and lush wildlife, untouched beaches, and the most beautiful sunsets in the world. To experience Costa Rica is to experience “Pura Vida” (Pure Life). It is more than just a saying here – it is truly a way of life, and the only way to fully understand this is by visiting and experiencing the country for yourself! Costa Rica is every adventure seeker’s dream location. You can’t help but fall in love with this free-spirited, laid-back country – it will always have you coming back for more.

I recently visited Tamarindo, my favorite town in Costa Rica, to do some last-minute final touches for my wedding in May. Of course, we had to make a mini-vacay out of it, and my Beachly spring box had everything I needed for the perfect tropical vacation.

When I first opened my Beachly spring box, it felt like (sunny) Christmas morning. The box included some major essentials that I needed for this trip.

First, it included two Fun in the Sun Packing Cubes that had the most beautiful pink and blue palm print. I’ve been on the hunt to find fun, aesthetic packing cubes, so I was really excited to see this in the box!

Next, I pulled out an item that could not have been more perfect for this trip: a stunning, knitted, full-sized beach bag! This Shorebreak Weekender Tote was literally my holy grail on this trip, not to mention it retails for $150! Fitting beach towels, sunscreen, a portable speaker, wallet, room keys, and more, this bag was a lifesaver, and it matched every outfit!

Then, I noticed the Tropical 3 Pack Travel Pouches, which fit my shampoo, conditioner, and body lotion perfectly. I loved how light and flexible they were, unlike those bulky tubes you get in the travel section of those big box stores.

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the Salt Air Rollerball by Skylar. I have heard amazing things about this brand (thanks TikTok!), and I have always wanted to try it. The salty air scent was light and perfect for the beach.

As big of a jewelry fan as I am, I really love a simple, dainty look. Let me tell you – Beachly provided. The Beachcomber Convertible Bracelet/Anklet was so perfect and effortlessly dressed up every outfit. Anytime I go on vacation, I love to bring a versatile jewelry piece that I don't need to be too cautious with while traveling. This bracelet really fits the part.

Finally, at the bottom of the box, I came across the cutest beach coverup that I wore everywhere. Seriously, I could sleep in this thing! The Seascape Coverup Dress looked so beautiful on my sun-kissed skin, and I loved how simple yet elegant I felt while wearing this around the hotel. I received so many compliments on it! 

As a Well Traveled member, I was able to receive $30 off my first Beachly subscription box, making it only $69! I highly recommend getting a Beachly box if you are a beach bum, sunset chaser, or island hopper like me. Each box includes full-sized items that are tailored to each season! 

Pop over to the perks page for your $30 off Beachly code. 

Pura Vida!
