What to Pack for 10 Days Backpacking Costa Rica

I still am holding within me this bit of relaxation and desire to simply slow down since my trip to Costa Rica. I really got in touch with myself and am getting to really listen to my instincts and honouring them.

Did you know it has 15 microclimates!? In Monteverde, it has 6! That is definitely a packing conundrum. 🤷‍♀️

Good thing I am a stylist and know how to travel pack like a pro (… because I am one). 

Watch my tips on what to pack and why


What to Pack:


  • Pants (I wore jeggings for polish and comfort)
  • 1 Long Sleeve Tops
  • 1 Scarf
  • 2 Swim Suits (+ 2 Swim Tops for UV Coverage)
  • 3 Shorts
  • 5 T-Shirts
  • 2 Tank Tops
  • Rain Coat Shell
