Why Costa Rica Should be On Every Bucket List*

If you’ve started a bucket list of countries you’d like to visit, Costa Rica should be on it. If you’ve never considered Costa Rica before, let me tell you a little about it. It’s referred to as the ‘happiest place on earth’ by visitors and locals alike. It’s an extremely peaceful place, and the people who live there love the pure life that they lead. If you think you’re interested in visiting the happiest place on earth, this guide should convince you:

The Beaches Are Beautiful
The beaches in Costa Rica are just stunning, so it’s perfect for people who’d simply like to lie back and relax. All you have to do to enjoy them is make sure you avoid the rain season.

You Can Try Your Hand at Surfing

Costa Rica is actually known for being a fabulous surfing destination. This is mainly because the water is warm and the waves are very good. In fact, if you want to go to try surfing, I would recommend going during the rain season as it can be much less crowded. Go to a surf school if you need a few lessons before going it alone, such as the Tamarindo Surf Academy run by Federico Pilurzu.

See a Sloth or Two
I think sloths are cute, you might think they’re ugly, but I'm sure that Sofa Sloth advert could help change your mind. There’s no denying they’re very interesting though, and this is a great place to see them!

The Food is Yummy
Costa Rica has its own style of food. They like the use of salsa, beans, and other dishes that are sort of Mexican but not actually Mexican. It’s hard to explain; you’ll just know when you get there. Two things you must try there are coffee and chocolate. Have some chocolate with your coffee to make it even better!

You Can Have an Adventure
If you want more adventure than laying on a beach, there’s no denying you can get it here. You can try whitewater rafting, kayaking, scuba diving, cliff diving and more. Extreme sports are abundant here!


The People are So Happy
You know that song ‘shiny happy people’? I think it was written about the guys in Costa Rica. As it’s known as the happiest country on earth, you’ll be welcomed with open arms. You’ll definitely feel at home here!

Visit the Rainforest
Visit the rainforest by taking a zipline tour or a ride through the treetops. If you’d prefer to be on foot, booking a walking tour should be no problem.

See all Kinds of Wildlife
Apart from the sloth, there’s other wildlife you can see too. Costa Rica has monkeys, raccoons, lizards, geckos, and much more. There’s plenty of birds too if you’re a keen birdwatcher.

See Some Volcanoes
This is a tourist attraction that Costa Rica is famed for. The place has over 200 volcanic formations, and this is what helps the country to grow such rich plants and crops. Hiking and camping are two popular activities you could try around the volcanoes!
