The most relaxing beach and nature vacation ever…

We wanted a trip where we could see some different parts of Costa Rica. We love animals and snorkeling. Being a couple that’s in our 50s, we also just wanted to relax and enjoy the environment. We chose July because it’s the least busy time of the year for the area, and the rainy season has yet to start! Our first stop was Arenal, where we thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet of the rainforest.

Amazing accommodations and lovely views…

Gaia Hotel and Reserve in Manuel Antonio has the best service ever. We loved it so much that after an hour there, we decided to change our three-night stay to a six-night stay. You can see loads of monkeys, sloths, and red macaws. Our room had a stunning view of the forest canopy and a glimpse of the ocean beyond. Finally, Playa Panama was a great place to unwind at the end of a three-week tour of Costa Rica. The beaches are sandy and rock-free, which is great for sunbathing!

Costa Rica is about the size of West Virginia, but ground transportation can take many hours on its rough, windy, and mountainous roads. Depending on your travel route, domestic flights may be the most convenient and sensible option. Traveling between some destinations can take up to 8 hours by ground, while a domestic flight can cut that travel time to 35 minutes - a major time saver, especially if you have only a short time in Costa Rica.
