Come to where the Atlantic Ocean and Pacific Ocean meet in the sunny oasis of Costa Rica. Whether you are basking on the awe-inspiring beaches of the Pacific Ocean, or taking a zip-line adventure through the rainforest, Costa Rica is a peaceful and beautiful must-do destination.
Costa Rica is a located in Central America, just north of Panama and south of Nicaragua. The Pacific Ocean borders the west side of the country and the Caribbean is located on the east. There is a lot of adventure to be found in Costa Rica with all of the rainforests, volcanoes, and secluded beaches. There are over 100 volcanoes located in Costa Rica, but there are only six active ones. There are tons of beaches and mountains, too, and with all these different types of wildlife inhabiting the area as well.
The temperature and weather does vary along with the elevation. Most cities in Costa Rica are very humid country, very much like Florida, but Costa Rica has fewer mosquitos due to their natural predators.Another thing to keep in mind that Costa Rica has two seasons: Wet and Dry. The wet season is also known as the green season and lasts from the month of May to November. During this time rainfall is highly expected, except in Guanacaste province. Guanacaste is generally sunny in the morning with afternoon and evening showers. The dry season is from December to the end of June.
When traveling to Costa Rica make sure to pack an adapter for your rechargeable electronics, like phone chargers. The wall outlets are the standard 110 volts, but they’re not grounded, so if your plug has 3 prongs, it won’t work without the adapter that makes it into 2 prongs. English is widely spoken throughout the major metropolitan and tourist areas, but in the more rural areas it could become a problem if you don’t know Spanish.Native Costa Ricans take holidays very seriously. If you decide to visit Costa Rica around the Easter or Christmas season, you are likely to find the country “shut down” for over a week.
Another thing to take into consideration when planning a trip to Costa Rica, unless you plan on getting a rental car, you may be using taxi services while there. Many taxis do not use meters, so before getting in a taxi check and see if it operates with a meter, and if it does not, agree on a price before getting in.
The first thing anybody traveling to Costa Rica wants to check out are the beaches, but not all beaches in Costa Rica are the same. Some beaches are known for big waves that are great for surfing, which may not be a good choice to bring kids to. Others, especially private beaches owned by resorts, are great for everybody in the family. The Tabacon Hot Springs is a great place to kick off your visit, especially if you’re in the mood for romance and relaxation and the Rincon de la Vieja, located in the northwestern province of Guanacaste, is a compound volcano that provides awesome views of volcanic geysers and mud pits. You can even go on a hike accompanied by park rangers, but be forewarned, it’s quite a challenging hike.
