Santa on the Beach
With Costa Rican Vacation’s Last Minute Availabilities – There’s No Excuse not to!

The Holiday Season is a double whammy in Costa Rica – when vacation days mix with the beginning of the dry season, it’s not hard to find a reason to celebrate no matter your faith. With forecasts of blue skies and refreshing “Christmas winds”, many people stuck in the snow covered north start to look longingly to their neighbor to the south for a bit of relief. To help you plan your Christmas vacation at the beach, Costa Rican Vacations, a luxury travel agency located in San Jose, has just announced its Last Minute Holiday Availabilities. These spots traditionally run out quickly, so take a look and you might find yourself saying “Feliz Navidad” this Dec. 25. If you still undecided, read on for some great reasons to spend your holiday vacation in the sun.

10. Who wouldn’t want to test Santa’s GPS capabilities by bringing the kids to a country with no street signs or road names?

9. Great excuse to take advantage of those post-Christmas sales when you get home and save money on your belated gift shopping.

8. “Must’ve got lost in the mail” will take care of gifts for the rest of the extended family who never got you anything last year anyway.

7. Your cheek-pinching aunt and prying cousins will never think to find you here.

6. Hotels and tour agencies are well aware of the season and organize special dinners, tours and events for guests during this time to make your Costa Rica vacation extra special.

5. You’ve prepared enough holiday meals, let the hotel staff do it for you this time, and they’ll take care of all the clean up while they’re at it, leaving you to relax with your family.

4. Who wants turkey when you can have fresh red snapper with mango chutney?

3. Sand resembles snow, yet it won’t give you frost bite, it doesn’t block you in your house and it won’t fall at inopportune moments ruining your Christmas hair do.

2. Like most religious holidays in Costa Rica, Christmas is a time of celebration. Food, gifts and decorations are made and displayed with care and everyone is in an all around jolly mood. It’s also the month of the Christmas Bonus, so the economy are spirits are up and people are more likely to do you a nice favor.

1. White Christmas is so last season. Unlike the states, December falls in the middle of the Costa Rican summer, meaning the lowest precipitation levels of the whole year, and the average temperature is around 80F.
