Home to Life’s Essentials
Costa Rica is home to what we like to call the four pillars — adventure, culture, wellness and sustainability. Each of these categories represents a key element of what sets this exciting Central American country apart from other popular destinations across the globe.
A land of volcanoes, rainforests and cloud forests, roaring waterfalls and mighty rivers, Costa Rica’s abundant natural setting can make it difficult to decide between the variety of adventurous activities that await. Rafting, windsurfing, diving, kayaking, recreational fishing and surfing — which will you choose?
Costa Rica is the country of Pura Vida — a friendly, multicultural and multilingual people descended from the cultural fusion of immigrants, including Africans, Chinese, Jews, Lebanese, Italians, and the indigenous peoples of the Bribrí, Cabécar, Maleku, Teribe, Boruca, Ngäbe, Huetar and Chorotega groups.
As such, the country is something of a melting pot, with the cultural influence of each group felt throughout the region. For example, Costa Rican cuisine features a plethora of flavors and experiences. What’s more, the area’s unique culture is further felt through the magic of regional arts and dance that visitors can experience at one of the many theaters, cinemas, museums and storefronts.
Specializing in wellness tourism, Costa Rica is an ideal place for travelers to improve their mental and physical well-being, adopt healthy habits and activities and liberate their souls. When you rest in paradise, you can expect to return a new person, free from the stressors of the daily grind.
Wellness activities designed to put you in touch with nature include trekking (low-difficulty walks), forest baths where you can breathe in the fresh air, Earthing (barefoot walks on the earth and sand) and “splunch”, a combination of spa and lunch. What’s more, you can also experience innovative relaxation techniques in-destination such as body wraps, hydrotherapy and hot springs.
Interestingly, there might be something more to the relaxing nature of the Pura Vida lifestyle. In fact, in 2004 a study from the University of Costa Rica found that mortality among Costa Ricans 90 years of age is 10% lower in the Nicoya Peninsula, south of Guanacaste.
Thanks to its extraordinary biodiversity, nature is always on display in this sunny oasis. That being said, it’s more important now than ever to travel responsibly, that’s why Costa Rica is dedicated to not only providing beautiful natural experiences for tourists, but also to educating visitors on the importance of protecting the region’s natural resources.
Although Costa Rica is a small territory, it makes up about 5% of the earth’s biodiversity. Fortunately, this natural treasure is protected by the National System of Conservation Areas, preserving a total of 25% of the national territory.
Visitors can enjoy the country’s majestic volcanoes, Pacific and Caribbean beaches tropical dry, wet, and rain forests, as well as exhilarating jungle landscapes, all without traveling long distances.
