Sun, Sea and Sand Costa Rican Style

Sun, Sea and Sand Costa Rican Style

Have you ever just sat back and thought to yourself ‘now this is perfect’ well that’s exactly how I feel when I visit Costa Rica. Everything about it seems so vibrant and exciting.
It has that tropical paradise feel to it with it’s clear ocean and white beaches but underneath this runs a current of great activities that would please even the most thrill seeking of us guys.

If you were looking for the place to both relax and try some of the most exhilarating outdoor activities, for example, white water rafting Costa Rica

or even bungee jumping, then Costa Rica is the place for you. There are some great Costa Rica all inclusive vacation packages

out there with something to suit anyone, whether your looking to go alone or take the family.

With it’s natural beauty, it’s one of the best places to visit when you want to relax, with there being just as many activities available for those of us who would prefer a more toned down vacation rather than a wild white knuckle ride holiday.


And if it’s wildlife you’re looking for then, in my opinion, Costa Rica is one of the best places to find rich natural wildlife, there are at least 20 national parks and 8 biological reserves on the island as well as special protected areas. So if you’re interested in Eco tourism then Costa Rica should be high on your wish list to visit.

Hiking is also a big hit with other tourists, with guided hiking trails happening all over, it wouldn’t be hard to take in a walking tour before settling down with a beer by the pool.

With volcano’s, mountains and beaches, you’ll also be able to see some of the natural beauty the island has to offer for free, it’s all around you and if you’re like me you will honestly find it hard to not relax. You try working when you can see a world of wildlife and stories to be told calling you or when the sun sets and the bar opens next to the beach!

Also a popular destination for honeymooners, Costa Rica has adopted a relaxed general attitude, with just adds to it being one of the best places to visit if you are truly looking for a relaxing holiday.

It’s also a great place to take your other half, with plenty to do for both of you, this definitely won’t be a one sided holiday and you will want to come back year after year!


There are also plenty of great activities to do as a family too, it isn’t just a destination for singles and couples, there are family friendly resorts and tours available, and with the beaches and ocean so close, even the most energetic members of your family will have a hard time being bored here.

I know there are some great outdoor adrenaline based activities on but once you’ve finished those it’s straight back to taking some time to relax, your holiday doesn’t feel amped up or hyper, it has an overall enjoyable laid back feel for the whole trip.

So if you are looking for sun, sea, sand and pulse racing activities then I’d recommend you look to book your next trip to Costa Rica, it won’t disappoint!
