By his own admission, Tom Brady's second Sunday in February was much better than his first one. A week after the New England Patriots' Super Bowl loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, the quarterback and his supermodel wife, Gisele B¨undchen, have found solace in Costa Rica.
Brady posted an Instagram of the the two kissing in front of a scenic sunset. "#losingstreakstopsatone," he wrote, adding a trio of emojis at the end.
The picture seems to be taken at the couple’s home on the Nicoya Peninsula, near the beachside town of Santa Teresa. The area is a surfer's paradise, a place "where fresh fruit grows in abundance, fishing is significant to the way of life, and the day-to-day seems to center around nature, whether it’s mountains, waterfalls, or the ocean." Thanks to its abundance of eco-friendly resorts, yoga retreats, white sand beaches, and organic restaurants, it's frequently been called the next Tulum.
But Brady and B¨undchen have been going to Costa Rica long before the hype started. The tropical paradise was originally the supermodel's go-to spot, but she told Vogue in 2010 that the couple have been going there together since 2007. In 2009, they held their second wedding—a sunset ceremony—at the estate.
A few Super Bowl rings and two children later, and the Brady-B¨undchens are still decamping to the Central American country once or twice a year. Just this past July, Brady shared a shot of the supermodel and their daughter horseback riding on the beach, with the caption (and Costa Rican motto) #PuraVida. For this eco-conscious and food-conscious pair, what better place to be?
