Looking for an exotic destination that’s just a short flight away from the U.S. and offers a great “bang for the buck?” Look no further than Costa Rica! This stunning country is the perfect vacation spot for families, couples, and relaxation-seeking individuals alike. The laid-back locals, or “Ticos,” will welcome you with open arms and their signature greeting, “¡Pura Vida!” which can mean hello, how’s it going, or just plain contentment.
With accommodations and activities at every price point, Costa Rica truly has something for everyone. Arenal, the famed volcano that boasts world-class hiking, zip lining, and other adventure activities, also offers stunning hot springs and spa treatments at exquisite resorts such as Tabacón. For nature lovers, monkeys, sloths, butterflies, and birds of all colors can be found throughout the country, with particularly abundant sightings in Manuel Antonio and the remote Osa Peninsula where the rainforest meets the beach. World-class surfing can also be found on both coasts, including the cool Caribbean vibe of the Hotel Aguas Claras the southern Nicoya Peninsula’s Nantipa (“blue” in the local indigenous language), highlighting wellness and the healthy lifestyle this “Blue Zone” region is famous for.
