When we travel the world, we want to experience more than a hotel lobby…we want to see its beauty. We hear from people all the time that they want to get beyond the walls of the resort and have some real outdoor adventure. But what if there was a destination where the resort blended into nature? Where you brought the outside in?
When our clients tell us they get antsy sitting by the pool all day, we know the perfect remedy: a Costa Rican rainforest. Walking (or zip flying) through the rain forest isn’t like any other nature. The rain forest teems with life…from animals to flower to volcanoes. For the more timid, hikes across canopy hanging bridges may be enough. For the bold, white water rafting and zip lining provide unique views of a biosphere that has something new around every corner…including volcanoes and waterfalls. Costa Rica is a unique destination in that it can fit a romantic honeymoon couple or a family who wants to experience something incredible together.
There are so many ways to encounter animals in Costa Rica. You can walk through the wonders of a butterfly preserve, float down a river to see birds overhead, or walk with a guide through dense rainforest meeting lizards, frogs, or new bigger animal friends. Horseback riding, snorkeling, and fishing are all close by too. You might even sneak a peek at a sloth!
Costa Rica has its share of unique luxury hotels smack in the middle of the natural action. Few places in the world blend architecture, art, and nature like Costa Rica does. There are lodges that sprawl into nature preserves and provide access to hot springs soaks. Or maybe you need to retreat to your private villa overlooking ocean vistas before your next adventure. Need 5-star luxury hotel from names you trust before heading out? Don’t worry; Costa Rica has them all.
For those who still need a little beach time, Costa Rica won’t disappoint. After exploring volcanoes and hot springs, it’s easy to head to the coast for some R&R and pampering before your vacation ends.
We often recommend Costa Rica for those who want something different and adventurous for their next vacation. Are you ready for Pura Vida?
