OK, so you’re in Costa Rica. Now what? Well, I’m sure you’ve got your tours and hotels all figured out, which is great! However before you get back on that plane and tell all your friends and family about your tropical experience, you’ve gotta do this! 1. Canopy Tours – Fly through the sky! This activity is truly unique to Costa Rica. Very few countries in the world can offer forest canopy viewing like this place. 2. Volcanoes – I’ve lived here for almost six years and I have to say, seeing an active volcano or a dormant one is still an incredible wonder to me.
There are 112 volcanoes in Costa Rica, you gotta check one out! 3. Local Cuisine – Sure vacations are all about indulging in great restaurants and great food. And I’m sure the fright of eating at a not so-respectable restaurant wins over the adventurous side of many travelers. But trust me, if you don’t eat at a local soda (restaurant) you really haven’t lived. They are cute, simple, full of fresh ingredients and almost always delicious. So take a risk, go LOCAL. 4. Public Transportation – I am a huge fan of local transportation. Where else can you see harried business people, women with five kids and baskets filled with live chickens and other produce, and working men with machetes all in the same spot at one time. So get on board and get a glimpse at local life from every aspect. 5. Beach Bumming – Did you know that there are over 800 miles of beautiful coastline in Costa Rica. If you don’t make it to one of the beaches either on the Pacific side or the Caribbean you are really missing out! 6. Butterflies – Butterflies have a great rep in Costa Rica. And they should! There are over 1000 different species and you can see them all first hand in any one of the numerous butterfly gardens found all over the country. 7. The Children’s Museum – I know, this doesn’t look like something that belongs on this list. But let me tell you, every time I go to this museum I am more and more impressed with it. The exhibits will entertain everyone from two years old to 102! 8. National Parks – Costa Rica has over 25% protected land. More than any other country in the world. It is filled with National Parks, Wildlife refuges, Biological Reserves and a lot more.
