A beautiful and eclectic country located in Central America, Costa Rica is home to a staggering diversity of landscapes, flora, and fauna. One of the top vacation destinations on the planet, here are 10 reasons why you should pack your bags and head to Costa Rica in 2017:
If you’re looking for the next place to enjoy a unique thrill, Costa Rica has an abundance of options. Visitors can choose from canopy tours that allow you to travel through the jungle like a monkey, rafting down world-class whitewater rapids, sky diving, kayaking, cliff diving, and scuba diving amongst other exciting options.
Costa Rica is home to more than 1,000 miles of coastline and some of the most beautiful beaches in the region.
Thanks to being the beneficiary of two ocean currents, Costa Rica is a paradise for surfers. Outfits like the Endless Olas Surf Camp can teach beginners how to surf or help experienced surfers take their skills to the next level. Located in Dominical, Endless Olas has access to some of the best beaches, river mouths, and break points in Costa Rica.
Whether you’re hiking through a pristine jungle or looking out the window as you drive down the road, you’re almost guaranteed to spot a sloth. To see these unique creatures up close and personal, be sure to visit the Sloth Sanctuary.
With a strong emphasis on maximizing flavor from natural ingredients, the food in Costa Rica offers plenty for even the pickiest palate. Costa Rica grows its own bananas, pineapples, coffee, and chocolate, making this country a heaven for foodies.
Located squarely in one of the famous blue zones, Costa Rica is home to some of the happiest people on the planet. The national slogan is Pura Vida, translated as “Pure Life”, used by locals to greet one another as well as to describe all of the many wonders in this unique land.
Approximately one quarter of Costa Rica consists of national parks and rainforests. Although relatively small from a global perspective, these rainforests are home to a staggering 5% of all of the biodiversity on the planet.
Few sights can compare to staring at the abyss in the center of a volcano. Costa Rica is home to more than 200 dormant or extinct volcanoes as well as five that are currently classified as active.
Whether it’s the monkeys who brazenly snatch food from visitors or the ubiquitous geckos, lizards, and iguanas, one of the best aspects of a Costa Rica vacation is the abundance of wildlife everywhere you go.
Since forsaking the need to maintain a military in 1948, the government of Costa Rica has focused its resources on preserving and promoting the environment. Costa Rica is on its way to becoming the first carbon-neutral country in the world, and visitors can choose from a variety of eco-friendly lodges, hotels, and tours designed to be fully sustainable.
