The average temperature for the past week has been around 40°F, but you don’t care. You’re on your way to Costa Rica where it’s about 80 every day and everywhere.
Here are five reasons why you should escape the freezing temps and head to the rich coast:
1. The Beaches
Playa Bejuco, Jaco Beach, Puerto Viejo and Playa Samara are just a few names on the extremely long list of beaches in Costa Rica. There are 763 miles of coastline on both the Caribbean and Pacific sides of Costa Rica, and you have a wide variety of different kinds of beaches. The surfing can be found at and around Jaco. Resort beaches like Samara, Tamarindo and Flamingo are where you can get all-inclusive packages. Laid back locations in the Caribbean like Playa Cocles and Manzanillo beach offer a different type of vibe from the Pacific Coast.
