Squashed between two oceans, right in the middle of the Americas, lies Costa Rica – a tiny paradise made for nature and sea lovers. The tiny republic of Costa Rica is known for its lush jungles, glittering sand beaches, extraordinary wildlife, and of course, the beautiful women of Costa Rica.
If you’re not sure why Costa Rica should be at the top of your travel list, we’ve collated some cogent reasons to convince you. So here’s why you should visit this tropical paradise where the sun never sleeps:
Having a vacation with dreary skies and dark clouds can be quite disappointing especially if you already had several activities lined up. However, in Costa Rica, you get to enjoy sunny skies and sun-drenched beaches regardless of when you visit the republic.
What we love most about this paradise is that tourists get a welcome that’s even warmer than the weather. Costa Rica is one of the most peaceful countries in the world, and as such, you’ll definitely enjoy a warm, peaceful welcome from the friendly locals.
Perhaps the only thing better than a relaxing vacation is good food. Luckily, Costa Rica has both. If you do get hungry on your vacation, there are tons of local delicacies you could try out, from the popular gallo pinto to tortillas and tropical fruits.
Don’t forget to grab a cup of coffee while you’re there. After all, Costa Rica is the original home of coffee.
If you truly love nature and wildlife, then you’ll feel right at home in Costa Rica. This republic accommodates some of the most exotic rainforests and wildlife species in the world. There are up to 28 National parks where you can feast your eyes on some of the rarest and common wildlife species in the world.
You can also visit the Caribbean Conservation Museum to learn more about some of these magnificent creatures. Although you can certainly set out on your own if you’re a solo traveller, these jungle/wildlife tours are typically more fun when done in groups.
Like we mentioned earlier, Costa Rica is known for many things, especially its fiery volcanoes. Here, you get to explore and learn about the most magnificent volcanic giants in the world.
Pay a visit to the Masaya Volcano National Park to feast your eyes upon a dazzling 22-square-mile wilderness featuring a crater lake and gothic bat-filled caves. You’ll also get a closeup view of the majestic Masaya volcano. Looming 2,083 feet above sea level, the Masaya volcano has a rich historical background, as it used to be a sacred place where locals came to please and worship the gods. Thus, you can expect that your trip to this historical monument will certainly be a memorable one.
Surfing and coral reefs
If you’re a sea lover, you’ll fit right into Costa Rica’s hydrophilic community. With its rich coast and sun-drenched beaches, you can easily discover some fun water activities to spice up your holiday.
For instance, there’s Witch’s Rock in the Santa Rosa National Park – a prime spot for surfers who want to surf through the warm waters and catch magnificent surf breaks. There are also several coral reefs where you can snorkel or just stand by and enjoy the view.
Costa Rica is a prime destination for tourists who want to enjoy a tropical holiday and bask in the sheer ecological beauty of it all. If you love nature and the sea, then this tiny paradise is definitely the place to be.
