People build well, but nature builds better. That’s why despite all the technology and convenience within reach, people can’t help but retreat to nature from time to time in order to heal their bodies, rejuvenate their minds, and restore their energies. Are you seeking refuge in such a land? Look no further. Costa Rica with the Best Costa Rica Tour Companies – Costa Rica Focus – Costa Rica Bird Tours would be your next destination for the most soothing and revitalising experience ever.
Rich in biodiversity and enticing scenic views, it is a strip of land in Middle America blessed with nature’s abundance. Half the country’s 51,100 square kilometers (19,700 square miles) are mountains and volcanic lands creating breath-taking sites filled with rain forests, clean rivers, virgin lakes, and waterfalls. The east and the west sides are bordered by Caribbean sea and the South Pacific Ocean- that’s a lot of beaches to explore.
Here are a few reasons why you should take a tour in Costa Rica.
The Safety and the Cleanliness
Believe it or not, Costa Rica is one of the safest countries in the world. It’s one of those few countries that has no standing army. Though it has had some difficulties in the past, Costa Rica now has a stable and prosperous democracy. It also has in place effective environmental policies to keep the country pollution free and clean. Even the tap water is safe to drink and use.
Recognized by the UN as one of the highest performers in Human Development Index (HDI), Costa Rica has an educated and friendly population. Although the national language is Spanish, most people understand and speak English. As soon as you arrive, you will be greeted by warm-hearted friendliness that is Costa Rican heritage. People there are down to earth and easy to get along with. The local governments and law enforcement agencies are very welcoming as well. There are also some expat communities who help foreigners if ever they are in trouble.
Next to the natural beauty, Costa Rica is also known for its food. With a country that preserves its pristine nature, it is no wonder that fresh and organic ingredients are used all the times in food preparations. Yes, you can also find McDonald’s there (Thanks to the ever-increasing crowd of American tourists), but I would recommend the local cuisines. They are so worth it. Most Costa Rican food includes rice or black beans or both. Aside from that, you would have tons of side-dish options of fresh vegetables, fruits, a variety of fish and seafood, and different kinds of meat. “Let food be thy medicine”.
There are so many things to do in Costa Rica that your main problem would be to choose what to do first. You can go for a beach day and have a lazy afternoon lying in the sand. You can also go active mode and choose to dive, snorkel, surf, windsurf, Jet Ski, and all other beach activities you can think of.
Don’t like the beaches? You can go to the mountains, and take a quiet hike. Trek through the rainforests and get close to nature. You can go alone or with a guide and discover the hidden waterfalls, rivers, lakes on your way to the peak of a volcano. The forests also house exotic animals that are friendly to humans. No doubt the stress of living a city life takes its toll on our body and mind, and the only way to restore ourselves is to escape to Mother Nature. If that is the case for you, Costa Rica should be at the top of your bucket list.
