After shooting the final bits of footage for A Chance for Peace in Egypt I really needed a holiday. A one-way ticket to Costa Rica did the trick! Of course, no holiday is without its fair amount of inspiration and after 1.5 months of living like a local, Costa Rica was no exception. This after-movie encapsulates the spirit of Playa Santa Teresa, a small surf town on the Pacific coast of the Nicoya Peninsula. Peppered with delicious restaurants right on the sand and late night dance parties, the town comes alive at night! During the day, tourists and locals alike bask in the sun and surf, gliding through the day like a monkey on a swing – and there are plenty of those too! I can’t wait to go back, until then I’ll be watching this video over and over again.
