5 Fun Things to Do on Costa Rican Beaches

Costa Rican Beaches

If you ever looked at Costa Rica vacation packages and wanted to go, you can easily find a good deal on airfare and a hotel stay. There are many different things to do there — so much so that one, two, or even ten trips would not cover every part of the beautiful, but small country. If you have plans to hit the beach, you’ll have an ample amount of fun things to do, even if you don’t plan on swimming much.

 

  1. Snorkeling tours. Most of the beaches in Costa Rica have snorkeling tours, or you can go on your own. It’s best to contact a tour guide if you want to see any of the local reefs or learn the best places to go. Asking the locals would be helpful, too.
  2.  

  3. Surfing or surf camp. Whether you are a good surfer, or you want to learn, Costa Rica is a great place to do it. There are many different surf camps located in the villages near many of the busier beaches. Head to the beach early, so you can catch a class that isn’t booked.
  4.  

  5. Yoga retreats. Along the beaches are yoga retreats meant to calm the body and mind. After a long day surfing or swimming, doing some yoga with a class will make a great end to the day. If you are really into yoga, you can try out a weeklong retreat, such as Pura Vida.
  6.  

  7. Canoeing or kayaking. Instead of hitting the waves, you can rent a canoe or kayak and explore the shore of Costa Rica. If you have never kayaked before, take one of the many classes offered.

For a great place to stay on the shore, contact us at the Ylang Ylang Beach Resort.
