If you’re a seasoned traveler, you might shy away from tours and opt to visit places on your own instead. I get it: I also enjoy the freedom to go where I want, when I want, in order to avoid crowds. However, there are benefits of booking tours, especially if it’s your first time in a new place. One of them is having a guide who can answer your questions and provide meaningful context to what you’re seeing. Another big perk is that hopping on a tour can potentially save you money, as many of them include meals and transportation. I thoroughly enjoyed the tours I went on in Costa Rica.

For many visitors to Costa Rica, the capital city of San José isn’t at the top of their bucket lists. Even though staying in this centrally located city allows travelers to take all kinds of quick day trips, it can be somewhat of a turnoff compared to the lush jungles, pristine beaches, and dazzling waterfalls elsewhere in the country. Because a lot of the chatter online about San José was mostly “meh,” I was up for a challenge and curious about what the city had to offer. I booked a food and culture tour for my first day there, hoping to find out what there was to like about San José — and bo ..read more

Is a wearable pump really worth the financial investment? Sure, the freedom sounds nice, but with mixed reviews and the inability to return the pump if it doesn’t work for you, is it really worth the risk of buying one? In short, though imperfect, wearable pumps have been life-changing for me. The first pump I bought was the Elvie. Let’s dive into the good, the bad, and the ugly of using it: The Good of the Elvie: Elvie offerings As a busy, traveling mom who exclusively pumps, I started to resent how pumping with my hospital grade and Spectra felt like time out every time, and wondered how I c ..read more

Río Celeste (“sky-blue river” in English) is one of Costa Rica’s most beautiful places and definitely worth a visit if you’re in the La Fortuna area. While it’s possible to go on your own, it can be tricky to get to without a rental car, which I didn’t have. Instead of having to figure out all the transportation details, I opted to go on a full-day tour from La Fortuna. Stick around to find out: is the Rio Celeste tour worth it?
