Valentine’s Day in Costa Rica

Costa Rica, a beautiful country with an astonishing diversity of plants and animals, is a great place to visit on Valentine’s Day. Known as “El Dia de los Enamorados” in Spanish (the day for people in love), Costa Rica is a country where Valentine’s Day is celebrated with wholehearted enthusiasm.

Nearly everyone in Costa Rica sends romantic text messages on Valentine’s Day, an estimated 10 million sent in a country with fewer than five million residents. Ticos, as Costa Ricans are affectionately known, are also big on sending elaborate floral arrangements and thoughtful gifts in order to express their love.

Other popular activities for couples to enjoy in Costa Rica on Valentine’s Day include romantic dinners, getaway vacations to remote eco-hotels and lodges, and time spent together on the beach. Valentine’s Day is also a time for live music, a variety of public dances, and spending time together in public. 

But unlike in the United States or Canada, Valentine’s Day and February in Costa Rica is a time of long, sunny days and plenty of delicious warmth. Whether it’s enjoying romantic time together at a natural spring or exploring the coastline by kayak or stand-up paddleboard, Costa Rica has plenty to do and see in February.

Other popular activities include surfing, horseback riding through a national park, bird watching, yoga, or simply enjoying a romantic walk along the beach as you and your special someone enjoy an unforgettable sunset. Costa Rica is a world-famous mecca for surfing thanks to its warm water temperatures, steady supply of large swells, and fantastically beautiful backdrops.
