What We Wore in Costa Rica

Hi! We’re Candy and Crystal. We’re sisters who grew up as military brats and spent the first half of our lives in Japan. The majority of our family resides in Japan, but we ventured out and have spent the second half of our lives mainly in the United States. We both love traveling and have always documented our travels, so we decided it was time to share our travel experiences with the rest of the world.

This was our first time in Costa Rica and we were ready for some adventure and relaxation. We needed to coordinate clothes that were made for both activities, so we made sure to pack both leisure and athleisure styles.

For hiking, we both decided it was best to wear something that was lightweight and breathable. We were in Costa Rica during the start of the wet season, so the chances of some light rain showers during our hikes were pretty high.

We both wore the Trekkie pant that slightly differed in style. Crystal wore a cropped pant and I wore a jogger pant. We both love Athleta's slim fit and the numerous pockets their pants have. Especially pockets with zippers!

Since the weather was off-and-on rain throughout the day, we opted for a short hiking route to a nearby waterfall from our villa. We also had to drive a little bit and it was Crystal's first time driving through a river!

When we arrived at the waterfall, it was picture perfect. We wanted to jump in and were glad that we decided to wear our bikinis underneath. The great thing about Athleta swimwear is that they are made to perform. I wore my bikini top and hiked with exceptional comfort. It was just like wearing a yoga bra, but my favorite feature were the straps. They are adjustable and removable, which is great if I want to avoid the tan lines.
