5 Reasons Why You Need to Visit Costa Rica
Costa Rica has two international airports with many nonstop + cheap flights from the US, Canada, Latin America, and Europe. Over the past couple of years, the airlines have opened up countless new direct routes and airfares have dropped considerably.
Costa Rica is the perfect place to learn how to surf. If surfing has been on your bucket list for a while, then now’s the time to book that ticket to Costa Rica! There are several spots in Costa Rica where the waves are perfect for beginners - - gentle waves, warm water, and sandy beach bottoms!
Costa Rica is an outdoor adventure lovers playground. From nine volcanoes, white water rafting, waterfalls, yoga retreats, eco-lodges, pristine beaches, hiking Costa Rica's tallest peak,Chirripo, to world class waves to surf, Costa Rica is the perfect tropical paradise escape for outdoor lovers.
The sunsets in Costa Rica are magical. Ever since I traded in my heels in New York City for a surfboard + camera in Costa Rica almost five years ago, I’ve witnessed countless magical sunsets here in Costa Rica. Those sunsets influenced me to pursue photography full time - - every day my ‘lil Chihuahua and I can be found on the beach in Tamarindo chasing the sunsets! And yes, sunset is my favorite color!
Costa Rica is top on the “Happiest Planet Index”! Nope, I’m not pulling your leg - - there does exist a measure of country happiness! In fact, the national phrase in Costa Rica is ‘Pura Vida’, which literally translates as ‘pure life’.
