What Makes Costa Rica So Unique

What Makes Costa Rica So Unique

Taking a trip to a foreign country offers a world of unknown and differences from where you currently reside. Costa Rica is especially one of the most fascinating countries to visit for the unique experience you’ll receive.

Costa Rica is not over the top with sky-rise buildings and huge shopping malls. Instead, Costa Rica is full of wildlife, a rich and thriving Rainforest, and cities that will allow you to forget your big-world worries and get more in touch with people and nature.

Wondering what some of the differences of Costa Rica may be? Here are a few things that set Costa Rica apart from many other countries!

 

Costa Rica Runs on Renewable Energy

Throughout 2016, Costa Rica has developed a running streak where the entire country runs strictly on renewable energy. This has been in the works since 2014 but was not until recently that other sources of energy have been derived. This allows us to use our resources for energy without harming our beautiful and delicate ecosystem.

Tropical Rainforests

Costa Rica is made up of 51% tropical rainforests. Besides providing tons of exciting tours and activities for tourists, rainforests benefit the country and the world in many ways. By absorbing carbon dioxide, rainforests help to reduce the effects of worldwide climate change. In addition to the important role rainforests play in Earth’s climate, they also are an important home to about half of the species of plants and wildlife on the planet. Because who doesn’t love reducing carbon dioxide and providing a home for plants and wildlife?

Perfect Weather All Year

The average temperature year-round in Costa Rica is 76 °F. Verano, or summer, is known as the “dry season” and lasts from December to the beginning of April. There is usually little to no rain during the dry season, allowing optimal activities for everyone. Invierno, or the rainy season, is also known as the “green season.” The rainy season lasts from April until the middle of December and brings a predictable rain schedule that can be comparable to that of Florida in the United States. Those traveling to Costa Rica are suggested to plan their trips to be active in the mornings and evenings, while resting and relaxing in the afternoon. The rainy season feeds the Rainforest and brings about a new color and wildlife experience that is unlike any other. The rich ecosystem is thriving and in its prime during this time of year.

Costa Rica: The Perfect Place to Unplug and Unwind

Costa Rica: The Perfect Place to Unplug and Unwind

Some of the biggest difficulties in trying to get the family together is trying to get everyone to live in the moment and enjoy each other’s company. Whether it’s unplugging from our devices or simply being able to “be in the now,” all families struggle with this from time to time. We’re happy to tell you that taking a family trip to Costa Rica may be just what you need to unplug and unwind!

 

After traveling the few hour plane ride to Costa Rica, many will be anxious to get back to their cell phones and update any and all social media platforms with #InCostaRica or #WeMadeIt followed by pictures of them waiting to exit the plane. What happens after this however, is what makes Costa Rica a wonderful place to leave our devices behind and escape reality.

– The Beautiful Views

When you get off the plane at Liberia Airport, you will begin to see all of the beauties that are native to Costa Rica. Firstly, the people and cultural differences will heighten curiosity and peak your interests. Second comes the gorgeous agriculture and wildlife that will greet you as you take your first few steps into Costa Rica.

– Limited Cell Phone Service

It is true that your cell phone service will not be as strong as it is where you came from, but that’s a good thing! Some places across Guanacaste will offer Wifi as you go off on excursions, and of course, we offer complimentary wifi in our All-inclusive packages.

– Everything Is New

New food, new architecture, new faces, new everything! Costa Rica is known to attract people with the beautiful nature and beaches, but like the true way to anyone’s heart, the food will make you never want to leave. Suddenly vacations in the past become one familiar blur and are replaced with constantly changing “firsts” as you have your first true Costa Rican meal or run into your first monkey.

– Living In Paradise

You will be too consumed with the daily thrills of canopy tours or surfing that you won’t be thinking about your mobile devices or social media updates. Instead, you’ll see who can make the biggest splash into the infinity pool that overlooks the Pacific Ocean or who can eat the most Tostones.

Giving Thanks at Villa de la Luna

Giving Thanks at Villa de la Luna

One of the best things about family traditions is starting new ones. With new doors opening and old ones closing, it’s not uncommon for old traditions to fade into the distance. If you’re having a hard time getting the family together for Thanksgiving, it may be time to think of something new. What better way to get the entire family together than with a trip to Costa Rica at an All-inclusive Beach Villa. Give Thanks with Villa de la Luna this year!

 

Sure, there are some staples that a majority of household’s have as their Thanksgiving tradition… The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Football, grandpa sleeping on the couch, etc. But who’s to say that you can’t have those very same traditions in a tropical paradise! With family moving to different states to pursue their dreams, getting everyone together for dinner can be nearly impossible.

 

Trade in your sweaters and turkey basters for your swimsuit and sunglasses! Costa Rica experiences the end of its “rainy season” in November, which brings short daily showers that leave the ecosystem thriving and native wildlife active. To make this new experience truly memorable, our 5-star Chef has planned a menu that is home to Latin culture and has some of the staples during any Costa Rican and Latin holiday or special event.

 

Start your newest family tradition by giving thanks to Costa Rica this year! See our availability calendar and reservation request form here!

 

Pura Vida!
