Costa Rica is amazing. It feels as if you have arrived in paradise when you land- A place where locals are friendly, the beaches are to die for, the wildlife and nature are astounding, and a rich culture surrounds you! It really is the perfect place to plan an unforgettable adventure!
It is amazing that the first thing that you hear as you start talking to the locals and you ask them how they are, or how their day is, their answer is “PURA VIDA” which literally means “Pure Life.” This phrase has a deep meaning to them as they are all about enjoying life and its pleasures, happiness, satisfaction and being positive. I honestly love it!

Here are my top 5 recommendations to have a marvelous time in Costa Rica!
It is a super comfortable hotel in a good location, it isn’t too far from the airport and you can walk to town. The staff is really friendly and they try to recommend the best activities and restaurants to go to in San José. Furthermore, their breakfast buffet is to die for!
SEE AROUND IN SAN JOSÉ
This tour is so much fun, you can book it online and it takes you to all the important spots in San Jose, you can take your time to visit museums, and have a typical Costa Rican meal in town. It is really worth it, plus you even have a musician with a guitar playing local music making the time more pleasant while on the tour!
There are so many tours online to choose from, I would recommend that you book a private one so you can take your time and also visit nearby towns such as Sarchí. It is colorful, and so beautiful – full of arts and crafts and a million souvenirs to take back home. I had to control myself not to end up paying extra luggage charges at the airport as I wanted to take back home the entire stores … and this massive wheel too!
ZIP LINING IN ARENAL
I sometimes think I should have been a monkey. I find the greatest joy putting myself in zip-lines all around the world. This one in Costa Rica was particularly special because I was able to see views of the Arenal Volcano, and lake views and zip-line in the jungle. The staff were fun and had me laughing the whole time enjoying the experience to its fullest! It is a must and I definitely recommend Sky Trek for this thrilling adventure!
Last but not least, you HAVE to visit this gorgeous place where you can relax and bathe all day in the natural thermal waters and finish the day off with a delicious buffet before going back to San José, or if you prefer you can also book a room and spend the night in this marvelous location!
There is a lot more to do in Costa Rica, you can surf, go on white water rafting trips, go to Guanacaste, visit the wonderful beaches and have the best of times!
