5 Reasons why you should visit Costa Rica

You’ve probably heard about Costa Rica before: a rainforest jungle in the middle of Central America, famous for its natural beauties, breath taking beaches and warm people. Yet, there may be many countries around the world known for similar details…

Overall, the tropics do offer a wide variety of amazing locations to check out. Why should you visit Costa Rica then? Well. Let us give you 5 reasons (amongst many more) why you should visit Costa Rica today:

5. We have no army

In this day and age, where conflict and war are everywhere in newspapers, wouldn’t you like to sit back and relax in a place where it’s citizens know nothing about armed conflicts?

One of the main things Costa Ricans are proud of is the fact that we have managed to live a life without an Army since 1948.

4. Gallo Pinto and coffee

You know nothing about a good breakfast until you try a traditional Costa Rican Gallo Pinto and local coffee. This is the breakfast of the God’s… Gallo Pinto is basically mixed rice and beans with cilantro, onions, garlic and our very own “Salsa Lizano“.

It may not sound like such a big deal but wait till you try it… it is served with eggs (scrambled or sunny side up), salchichón (sausage), sweet plantain and sour cream or fried cheese. Matched with world famous Costa Rican coffee, there is really nothing better to start off your morning while in Costa Rica.

3. Rainforests

In Costa Rica we have many rainforests and in each one you get the opportunity to experience first-hand the wonders of nature as we not only have an immense variety of flora, but also hundreds of beautiful animal species sometimes only found in the tropics.

Seeing these wonders of nature with your own eyes is something you must do at least once in a lifetime.

2. The people

Costa Ricans are laid back people, kind and welcoming, but most of all Costa Ricans love to show visitors a good time. No matter where you are in Costa Rica, you will most certainly find someone willing to show you around or give you pointers about the best places to go and things to do. Thanks to the warmth of Costa Ricans you can never get bored.

1. The beaches

In Costa Rica we have literally hundreds of different beaches: from hip and trendy locations where you can have fun all day and night, to beaches with the perfect waves to surf in all of Central America, to calm and quite virgin locations where you can relax being one with nature… name it and trust us, we have it.

One thing you need to know that may also make you want to come right away to visit Costa Rica is that all the locations are always a drive away. In one day you can visit the top of a volcano and a few hours later relax by the sea.
