Travel to Costa Rica

Nestled in Central America, Costa Rica is a true paradise that’s hard not to fall in love with - boasting rugged rainforests, cruisy coastlines, and tropical beaches.

 

It’s also known for its chilled out vibe as the local Ticans do not take life too seriously - they simply enjoy it and coined the term ‘pura vida’ which is basically their way of living. They appreciate the simple pleasures and live a relaxed life to the fullest.

 

Costa Rica is a wholesome destination offering heart pounding adventures for the wild at heart and heart warming retreats for the wellness enthusiasts. One can tarzan swing or hike a volcano in the morning to then unwind on the beach at sunset in the late afternoon - the perfect balance!

 

Natural wonders not to miss include Manuel Antonio beach and National Park, Arenal Volcano, Tortuguero National Park, and Monteverde Cloud Forest. 

 

Costa Rica allows visitors to recharge and experience a new side of life that will leave a lasting imprint on both their wellbeing and happiness!

Best time to visit

Dry season (December - April) is generally the most popular period to visit. With a low chance of rainfall, even in the rainforests, it’s the perfect time to take advantage of the beautiful weather and exploring.

 

Visibility, which is important for common Costa Rican activities such as snorkelling, trekking and wildlife spotting, is high also.
