After spending five relaxing days in the sun and surf of Costa Rica, Britney Spears has returned to her L.A. home.

An eyewitness tells OK! that the singer, 26, who was vacationing in Costa Rica with Oscar winner Mel Gibson, her father, Jamie Spears, and her agent Jason Trawick, arrived at Burbank’s Bob Hope Airport shortly after 7:30 p.m.

It was just last week that the world got to see a happier Britney frolicking in the waves and riding ATVs along the beach as she continues to recover from her whirlwind year.

Pictures showing Brit and Jason cuddling affectionately and acting flirtatious with each other have sparked rumors that the two may be nurturing more than a professional relationship! (Trawick is said to be the force behind Brit’s two cameos on How I Met Your Mother.)

But all good things must come to an end. Brit has to focus now on her on-going custody case with ex Kevin Federline. The two are scheduled to meet face-to-face in a private conference this week to hammer out the logistics of their custody agreement.

Commissioner Scott Gordon has said that if the two can’t come to an agreement, he will set a trial date for sometime in August or September.
