Costa Rica vacations are famous for rainforests, beaches and incredible wildlife for a reason.
OK, so what's all the hype about? It can't be THAT amazing.
You experience tropical forests first-hand by staying right within them - it will change your relationship with nature - you have the ability to stay at true ecolodges where there is a convergence of simplicity, green and luxury. On Costa Rica vacations you can get as adventurous as you want or as chilled out as you want, the choice is yours. If zip-lining through the clouds and canopy one day and whitewater rafting or surfing another are your thing, or if it's testing your bird or monkey spotting capabilities and relaxing in hot springs in view of an active volcano, it's up to you.
One place that so many who've been to Costa Rica have not yet discovered is the Osa Peninsula. This is the part of the country that is way down south, far enough that unless you know what you'd be missing if you didn't go, you probably wouldn't get there. There is such an abundance of wildlife in the acres of nature preserves there that species like scarlet macaws and hundreds of other birds flourish. Threatened squirrel monkeys and sea turtles thrive, and even big cats roam the jungle - an amazing occurrence that is increasingly unique in the natural world.
But what is it that makes Costa Rica green vacations so special? Yes, you can climb the highest peak and see both the Caribbean and Pacific at once, or you can go to the Caribbean coast and see how Caribbean and Latin cultures mix to create a distinctive and undeniably cool atmosphere. But simply stated - it's the people. When traveling, you do interact with natives of the country, it's only natural. But when you get the chance to be treated like family - welcomed into a home with open arms - that is when the travel experience becomes like no other. The warmth a Costa Rican family can share with you can change your life… making your vacation not just a trip anymore.
- Ecolodges will awe you with their green features and magical rainforest locations, with an added touch of service and simple luxury.
- Walk through clouds and see majestic roots of giant trees, listen to the sounds, see birds that will make you feel awestruck - you can only imagine what the early explorers felt when they came upon a tropical forest for the first time.
- Choose your own adventure - zipline, surf, go rafting, snorkeling or scuba diving, the best is at your fingertips.
- Be privileged enough to spend some quality time with Costa Rican people - let them feed you fresh food from their farm and make you the best coffee in the world (they probably grew it themselves). They can warm your heart and soul and make you feel at home - be careful you might want to make it your home.
