Top 5 Reasons to Travel to Costa Rica

Interested in learning Spanish while exploring one of the most biodiverse areas in the world? Costa Rica is a beautiful, biodiverse country that attracts thousands of visitors around the world. Here are our Top 5 Reasons on why you should travel to Costa Rica!

  1. National Parks

Costa Rica is full of gorgeous National Parks – 26 in total! The country has rainforests home to many different species, including the lazy two-toed sloths. They even have active volcanoes if you are feeling a bit dangerous! Whether you are looking for a quiet stroll or a full-blown adventure, the National Parks have something for you in store!

  1. Premium Coffee

In Costa Rica, coffee is extremely important, leading to some of the best coffee in the world! Costa Rican coffee beans are grown locally and have some of the fullest flavour profiles. The traditional brewing method involves a chorreador – a coffee sock – which acts as a regular drip-coffee brewer. Plus, the coffee is typically so sweet that there is no need to add sugar!

  1. Tropical Beaches

Costa Rica is considered the perfect holiday destination for many reasons, including the fact that they have amazing beaches! If you are the type of person who enjoys the sunshine on your skin while looking at crystal clear water and (maybe) sipping a margarita, Costa Rica is for you. If you are on the beach to relax, spend time with friends, or play volleyball, the beaches will definitely keep you satisfied and entertained.

  1. Endless Activities

There is SO much to do when you live by beaches, canyons, rainforests, and volcanoes! If you are down for an adventure during your stay, you can zipline above the rainforest, hike to beautiful waterfalls, go white water rafting with some friends, or even take a chocolate tour!

  1. Eco-Tourism

As a temporary resident in Costa Rica, you will be able to explore and witness first-hand the beautiful areas of Costa Rica, and how its residents fight to protect them. Roughly 25% of the country’s land is protected from future development, including its beautiful National Pars. If you are looking for a holiday destination with diverse ecosystems and wildlife, Costa Rica is full of places for you!
