Tours for Singles: Visit Costa Rica this May!

Monday, February 8th, 2016

Costa Rica is one of the most beautiful countries on the planet. Like many of the countries of Central America, Costa Rica boasts a diverse range of scenery, from its beaches, mountains and volcanoes to its lush rolling hills full of coffee plantations and banana trees. Costa Rica is also remarkably safe and has a friendly population. The “Ticos”, as the Costa Ricans prefer to be called, are friendly and very welcoming to those who want to experience a taste of what their beautiful home has to offer.

While the primary language of those living in Costa Rica is Spanish, many of the Costa Ricans in the country speak fluent English as well, especially those in the more populated areas and those that are popular to tourists. Costa Rica offers unique and extraordinary activities, such as zip line tours through the jungle, kayaking tours on Central America’s second largest lake, and activities on the beach like massages or snorkeling.

The 7-Day Tour offered by Women Traveling the World is going to immerse the traveler in a host of Costa Rica’s most popular activities. Out of the many tours for singles, this trip to Costa Rica is unique! Like all the beautiful countries of the world, Costa Rica would take months to fully experience. However, the tour includes activities that are carefully planned to a schedule, which can be viewed here. It gives those wanting to experience Costa Rica a great sampling of all that Costa Rica has to offer.

Reasons to Come Visit Costa Rica!

Some of the reasons to take a trip to Costa Rica may be obvious. The wonderful tropical beaches lined with palm trees and fresh coconuts or “pipas,” as they’re called, are an obvious attraction to many of the people who are considering taking a trip to the tropics. But those who have been to the beach may be more excited about a trip to the rain forests of Costa Rica, where sloths, monkeys, and parrots can be found living in their natural habitat.

Experience Pura Vida

Pura Vida, or Pure Life, as is the English translation, is the motto of the Costa Rican people. Costa Rica is a champion of everything healthy and green. The country is also home to a wide variety of exotic fruits like Dragon Fruit (Pitaya in Spanish), Guanabana, and Mamoncillos (or Mamones), each of which makes a delicious tropical fruit drink made by local restaurants and vendors.

Beautiful Guanacaste

Guanacaste is actually the province of NW Costa Rica. Bordering Nicaragua and the Pacific Ocean, Guanacaste is known for being an ideal destination for tourists looking to experience an idyllic getaway to its beautiful beaches. Guanacaste has more than 400 miles of coastline, and is warmer than the other provinces of Costa Rica that have higher elevations.

Catamaran Tour

The beautiful waters off the coasts of Guanacaste are home to an assortment of fish and marine life. Day 2 of the Tour includes a Catamaran Tour complete with snorkeling and snacks on board the sailing vessel.

Ricon de la Vieja National Park

Located in the region of Guanacaste, Ricon de la Vieja National Park is famous for its resting volcanoes and the activities that take place on their slopes. Trails and paths line the jungles of the region and this National Park of Costa Rica is ideal for trips full of travelers that are eager to experience what it has to offer.

Arenal Volcano

One of the exciting stops on this Costa Rica trip is going to be the Arenal Volcano. This currently resting volcano sits at 5,437 feet. There was a serious eruption in 1968, but according to seismic scientists the volcano is currently resting and in a dormant phase. Today the slopes of the volcano are home to activities such as horseback riding, white water rafting, and even hikes through the jungle.

The Hot Springs

The geothermal activity underneath the earth’s surface also results in a variety of hot springs in the area. The hotel actually features a swimming pool along with 4 hot springs, whose mineral-rich waters are great for the skin. Hot springs are the natural hot tub of the jungle.

Go Kayaking

Kayaking in the waters of Costa Rica is an experience that one won’t soon forget. Arenal Lake is the second largest lake in Costa Rica and sits at the foot of Arenal Volcano. Interestingly, the dam on Lake Arenal produces 12% of Costa Rica’s electrical energy. Kayaking on the lake is one of the most popular activities, and it’s actually a popular destination for windsurfers as well!

Ride the Zip Lines

Some Americans may have grown up at a summer camp that featured zip lines. While those may have been exciting, they pale in comparison to the zip lines that can be found lining the jungles of Costa Rica. The zip lines enjoyed on this particular tour feature 12 cables and 13 platforms, travelling a distance of 3 kilometers or 1.86 miles above the beautiful Costa Rican rainforest! On this day of the tour there is also an optional hanging bridge tour.

The Costa Rican trip for women that want to see more of this beautiful Earth and are ready to start with the amazing jungles and beaches of Costa Rica is going to be from May 22nd to 29th of this year. Many of the activities listed above are included in the price, and all that is needed to book the trip is a 500$ deposit!

Top 4 Reasons to Travel to Costa Rica

Costa Rica has emerged as a top choice in tropical vacation destinations in recent years, and for good reason. This tiny oasis in Central America (it’s smaller than Lake Michigan!) offers everything a solo traveler could want.  Let’s go over some reasons why you should cross Costa Rica off your travel list this year.

  1. Uncompromised Natural Beauty

If you’re a nature lover, be prepared to fall in love with Costa Rica. The natural beauty is seriously a wonder to behold. Waterfalls? Check. Volcanoes? They have those. Natural hot springs? Naturally. Costa Ricans take the preservation of their rainforests and wetlands seriously. In fact, over 25% of their total landmass is protected and the country is considered a world leader in conservation efforts. Our Women Traveling the World Tour visits some of the most breathtaking sights to be seen, including the Arenal Volcano, surrounding hot springs, waterfalls, and a Hanging Bridges Tour which will suspend you over the impressive rainforest landscape. The beaches of Costa Rica are truly paradise with crystal blue waters and the softest white sand you’ll ever feel between your toes.



  1. You WILL Encounter Lots of Wildlife

Animal lovers will get up close and personal with all kinds of wildlife. Chill on the beach with enormous iguanas, and make sure to look up in the trees to spot families of monkeys. Hiking in the Costa Rican rainforest is always an adventure, and it wouldn’t be uncommon to spot deers, toucans, and sloths. Costa Rica is also known as a great place to whale-watch and see dolphins in their natural habitat. Whales are most likely to be seen December-March, so our upcoming trip in December is ideal!

  1. Costa Rica is Safe for Single Women Travelers

Costa Rica has been a democracy longer than any other country in Central America and is one of the safest vacation spots for single women. In fact, the country doesn’t even have an army; they outlawed it in 1949. The people of Costa Rica are some of the most cheerful and friendly in the world, and are happy to communicate with tourists. The country was actually ranked number 1 on the Happy Planet Index in 2014. Their national motto Pura Vida (pure life) expresses their philosophy of living optimistically…life is short, live happy!


  1. The Food

Costa Rican fare has an emphasis on freshness and good quality ingredients. The national dish is Gallo Pinto, meaning “spotted chicken”, and consists of stir fried rice and beans. Add some scrambled eggs with sour cream or cheese and you’ve got a traditional Costa Rican breakfast. A common snack is fried plantains which are sweet and tasty. Fresh fruit is also common; get ready for the freshest mangoes, papayas, and watermelon you’ve ever tasted. Costa Rica is also home to some exotic fruits you might not have heard of, like Zapotes, Guanábanas, and manzana de agua.

Delicous Costa Rican Cuisines
If you’re looking for the perfect winter getaway this year, Costa Rica is a perfect choice. The natural beauty will leave you in permanent awe, and you’ll have the adventure of a lifetime.
