Visit Costa Rica “Pura Vida” Vacations


Visiting Costa Rica is an experience like no other. The Latin American country has active volcanoes that give way to rolling countryside and vivid jungle beaches, you’ll have the country’s motto “pura vida,” or “pure life” ringing in your ears the whole time you’re there!

And to see Costa Rica on a mountain bike is to spike pura vida with pure adrenalin. Imagine an eight-day/seven-night tour with Access Trips’ bilingual guides, you’ll ride through Central America’s most biologically diverse country, swap stories with other tourist and find incredibly warmth people; over evening cocktails and rest your head to dream of the eco-friendly views.

What’s not to love about this, described by many as “paradise.” Here are some of the activities you can try while visiting:

  • Incredible wildlife – sightings of wild monkeys, iguanas, crocodiles, toucans and more are virtually guaranteed
  • Mountain-biking
  • Soothing dips in the hot springs in La Fortuna and amazing views of the volcano from Volcano Lodge
  • Most of the hotels have private balconies or terraces, some of which feature killer views of lush landscapes, jungle and Volcanoes

If you are looking into getting away from all the noise of the city and want to really experience the nature and the outdoors this is your place!

The country is bordered by Nicaragua to the north, Panama to the southeast, the Pacific Ocean to the west, and the Caribbean Sea to the east. Now what’s exciting about its location also is the Pacific Ocean, that attracts many tourists, especially surfers to the port of Puntarenas. There are many all-inclusive Puntarenas resorts, where lodging, meals, activities and more are rolled into one price!

But if five star hotels is your thing Costa Rica has its own Marriot Hotel, located in Heredia. Three-hundred-room nouveau colonial resort sits on a coffee plantation in a suburb of San Jose. Here is what we know and love about it:

  • The grand colonial edifices by Ronald Zürcher, one of Costa Rica’s finest architects
  • Though the hotel is minutes from the airport, you’ll never hear a plane
  • Nighttime dip in the sizable Jacuzzi under the stars
  • Thinking about exercise, 24-hour gym, tennis courts and an on-site driving range
  • Succulent tapas (try the lamb with a sweet sangria at La Isabela)
  • WiFi is free in public areas
  • The hotel feature Deluxe and Executive Rooms
  • The hotel frequently hosts large events, such as weddings and conferences

And here is our final tip when visiting! Costa Rica’s dry season lasts from December to April!
