The saying: “Pura Vida” is a typical motto in this Central American country for a good reason. Various environments, including jungles, rainforests, volcanoes, coastlines, and hot springs, make it a fascinating place to explore.
Wildlife lovers get a chance to snap a few pics of monkeys, wildcats, sloths, whales, reptiles, and sea turtles in their natural habitats.
And after a day of diving, surfing, hiking, playing golf, or exploring Mother Nature, you can look sit back and relax on an unspoiled beach or in a rich rainforest.
Five-star hotels and resorts are scattered throughout the country, so you can choose whatever surroundings you’d like to find what “pura vida” truly means. In Guanacaste, the “Reserva Conchal” is surrounded by the sands of Playa Conchal.
On the other hand, in the center of Costa Rica’s rainforest, Playa Cativo Lodge is a deluxe beachfront property accessible exclusively by boat. And Nayara Gardens, on the rim of Costa Rica’s Arenal Volcano National Park, boasts incredible views of the volcano.
Keep in mind that this country has two international airports, Juan Santamaria in San Jose and Daniel Oduber Quiros in Liberia. So make sure you choose the most convenient airport and ground transportation when booking your post-retirement vacation.
