Costa Rica has always been a favorite destination to visit during the holidays thanks to its close proximity to the United States, along with the ideal Christmas climate, which coincides with the beginning of the Costa Rican summer.

Costa Rica thrives over the holiday season, catering to visitors and residents alike who want to take advantage of the great weather and vacation days from work to explore this beautiful country.

Want to start the New Year off right with the tranquil atmosphere at the Nosara Harmony Hotel, where organic meals, yoga lessons and fresh air and ocean breezes will leave you feeling truly rejuvenated? Why not try a spa room at the Xandari Plantation resort, an eclectic hotel that is a great retreat for the nature lover.

Also on the menu for a perfect holiday season are hotel packages that will have you enjoying a full week in your own luxury condo in the Los Sueños Resort Community. With 0 to 0 off, it is hard to say ‘no’ to the idea of having the entire resort at your disposal, with 5-star restaurants, an international marina, casino and more!

For the busybody among you, the all-inclusive stay at Reserva Conchal for four nights over Christmas is the perfect getaway to recharge your batteries in indulgent luxury while hardly missing a beat back at home. Of course the 0 discount won’t hurt either!

All these options and more can be found on Costa Rican Vacation’s Last Minute Holiday Availabilities web page.

Insane costs of traveling with your surf board Jun 05

Long before the hike in fuel prices and airlines charged alot money to travel with your surf boards. Arriving safely, then you had to get them to the beach intact whether you rented a car or caught the bus. Then you add the factor of lugging them around from baggage to rental car or bus, etc along with your clothes and crap. It is a big time hassle and for me has put a dent in the journey many times.

Living in Jaco, Costa Rica I no longer really need to worry about this adventure but HOLY COW for the people are visiting today the “extra fuel surcharges” for surf boards is INSANE!! I have been waiting to videotape Chuck Herwig who owns Chuck’s W.O.W. Surf here in Jaco to begin discussing travel tips for surfers. more…

The report took into account official figures and opinion polls as well as many other indicators before ranking the country in position 128 out of 134.
