5 Ways Costa Rica Is Your Best Vacation Choice

Posted by Cheryl Smith on April 13th, 2016

Pura Vida! Have you experienced it? Do you know what it means?

Strictly translated from Spanish, 'Pura Vida’ means 'pure life'. In the Costa Rican context, it means far more. Pura Vida is the national saying and the national sentiment in a country where friendliness is a core cultural trait.

There are many Costa Rica resort packages available for travellers of all tastes and budgets.

Why Choose Costa Rica Over Any Neighboring Countries?


1. Better Food

Are you hungry? Sure, you can find chicken and rice anywhere in Latin America, but it will never compare to Arroz con Pollo in the Costa Rican style. If you haven't tried the genuine item on the Nicoya Peninsula you owe it to yourself to do so. Ylang Ylang Beach Resort in Montezuma serves its award winning dish in their idyllic setting. Pura Vida to the max.

2. Better Coffee

You've tried the rest, now try the best. The volcanic soil and the perfect climate create the optimal conditions to grow the finest coffee you have tasted. Savour the flavor at the Finca Rosa Blanca Coffee Plantation Resort just twenty minutes from San Jose's airport. Your friends will be extra envious.

3. Better Beer

Of course you will be thirsty. San Jose is the capital city of Costa Rica and will likely be your point of entry. Before you strike out into the glorious countryside, experience The Art of Craft Beer Tour. The same conditions that make great coffee nourish top notch hops and grains. The Costa Rican craft beer compliments both the cuisine and the renowned climate of the country.

4. Better Volcanoes

If you think volcanoes won’t excite you, it is only because you have never stood at the edge of the rim looking down into the caldera. It’s practically a guarantee that you that Costa Rica's signature volcano Arenal and the town of Fortuna will dominate your photo feed to your facebook friends. They'll wish they were there with you.

5. Better Value

Your money buys more in Costa Rica. There is no extra charge for warm hospitality and superior service. You can be pampered at expensive hotels, sure, but you can find friendly and personalized service at even the smallest wayside Bed-and-Breakfast. Costa Rica is known for many things, but first and foremost is wonderful, caring people.

Your choice of any Costa Rica resort packages will meet your expectations of being adventurous and frugal while enjoying the vacation you have always desired.

Costa Rica - Pura Vida!
