Top 6 Costa Rica Experiences

Costa Rica is unique compared to other Central American countries, in the sense that its perfect for those loving the rugged outdoors & seeking adventures, while at the same time providing the most amazing opportunities for wellness getaways to relax and recharge, focus on self-care, and deeply connect with Mother Nature. Tuning into nature's rhythm as a way to discover wholeness and wellbeing. The possibilities are endless, and here are our top 6 recommendations that will help you create wonderful memories to last a lifetime!


1. Learn to surf from a pro.


Riding the waves, or learning to, is likely the Nr. 1 reason why the majority of visitors come to Costa Rica! Beginners and pros alike are sure to experience magical moments connecting with the ocean and riding perfect glassy barrels. Costa Rica is one of the top surf destinations in the world, and some of the most hard-core surfers call it their backyard - at the same time, these very same waters are enjoyed by many - learning the ropes, improving their skills, or just giving it a try. You don't have to be athletic to try surfing, and the best way to learn is from a pro, who will not only teach you technique and skill, but also help you understand rules of conduct and, more importantly, water safety.


2. Take private yoga classes.


Imagine practicing at an open air yoga shala, surrounded by the sounds of nature, waves crashing in, birds singing their song, a light summer breeze sweeping through, or maybe soft rain falling down on the jungle... Costa Rica is one of the top yoga capitals, there is an abundance of yoga hotels & shalas, and most private accommodations provide beautiful open-air yoga decks. Personalized yoga classes are not only great for anyone beginning to explore the practice, but also those looking to deepen their knowledge. Yoga is meant to meet you exactly where you are, and private yoga sessions in Costa Rica are a truly magical experience. (For details click here)


3. Horseback riding through the Costa Rican countryside.


Experience the most magical moments, discovering the way Costa Rica used to be, as you ride though mangrove-lined riverbeds, explore stunning views from the highlands, stop at local countryside cantinas, or gallop on sunset-colored beaches. There are many outfitters to choose from, so please choose wisely, and do your research. Feel free to contact us for recommendations.

5. Fly over the Costa Rican jungle on a canopy zip lining tour.


Picture about a dozen tree-top platforms, where you can pause in between flights over and trough treetops, boasting expansive jungle and ocean views. It's breathtaking, it's wondrous, and it's a once in a lifetime experience!

6. Spa time by the beach.


After all these adventures and activities, how about a rejuvenating massage or relaxing body treatment at an open-air spa, serenaded by the sounds of the ocean? Listening to the sounds of nature while indulging in self-care is one of the best practices to return to well-being.
