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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
