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.

Tips for Taking a Beach Vacation in Costa Rica

Have you been thinking about taking a beach vacation to Costa Rica? If so, you are in for one of the most memorable times of your life! However, as with planning any vacation, it is always important to make sure you address every detail before setting out. Here are some tips to help you plan the perfect Costa Rican beach vacation:

 

  • Take the weather into consideration when choosing the dates for your vacation. Like any other place in the world, there are ideal times for visiting Costa Rica. Talk to your travel agent or reach out to the staff here at the Ylang Ylang to learn more about Costa Rica’s primary tourist season, as well as the off-season.

 

  • Choose the Costa Rican destination and accommodations that will keep you in close proximity to the beach. The last thing you want to do is waste precious time traveling back and forth to the beach, every day. A stay at the Ylang Ylang will put you within walking distance of the beach for immediate gratification!

 

  • Think outside of swimming and soaking up the sun. There are various activities you can enjoy on the beach and in the warm, tropical waters of Costa Rica. Talk to the hotel staff to learn more about local beach activities being offered.

 

  • Plan for the unexpected. You may find one or two days when going to the beach is not the best option, perhaps due to the weather or another unforeseen circumstance. Make sure you have other activities in mind to help fill in the downtime and make your Costa Rican vacation even more memorable.

Tips for Choosing a Beach Vacation Destination

If you have decided to take a beach vacation this summer, the first thing you have to do is choose the right location. There are thousands, if not millions, of beaches to choose from around the world. However, it is important to remember that beaches are different. They each have something to offer – and they each have their disadvantages. It is important to examine each option thoroughly to ensure that you choose the beach location that best fits your needs.
 

  • Some of the things you should keep in mind when choosing a beach destination include:
    Condition of the beach – Make sure the beach has clean sands with plenty of space. The last thing you want to find is a trashy beach or a crowded beach with no private space.
  • Activities – Make sure the beach has activities other than merely lying on the sands. This will ensure that you have a fun, enjoyable time during your beach vacation.
  • Waters – Research the waters surrounding each beach to ensure that you choose a safe location, especially if you plan on taking your family with you.
