For solo vacations, it is hard to beat Costa Rica. It is affordable for everyone. If you choose to go for the season, it's a good buy considering the extra costs for individual travel packages that complicate the luxury travel choices for single travelers. This fall occurred shortly after the summer mass home, so I took the opportunity to visit in September. Even though it is a rainy season, I do not remember ever removing the umbrella from the dust. The fall bargains may reflect a small group of tourists from all over the Caribbean, as some tourists comment on hurricanes. In fact, Costa Rica is rarely affected by direct hurricane strikes and has several distinct climatic zones. All in all, it was one of my best solo travel destinations.
Hotels range from global high-end chains to small local properties. TripAdvisor provides a list of 120 hotels in 20 different locations in Costa Rica. One local site has been classified as a 5 star with nighttime prices ranging from $ 113 to $ 1,240, providing virtually unlimited luxury travel options for travelers. Seven of those 5-star hotels were in the $ 200 to $ 299 range, and although not cheap, they were compared to resort prices around the world.
Costa Rica is one of the best resorts to offer four types of holidays for travelers: 1. Historical and cultural travel packages reflecting Caribbean and Latin American heritage, 2. ecotourism or green travel packages, 3 adventure tour deals and 4. beach runs only for honeymoon recipients.
While I was on my way, I packed up my travel pack and started my trip to the capital, San Jose. Spanish colonial history began in the early 16th century when Christopher Columbus gave him the name Costa Rica. Almost 300 years after independence from the first Spanish settlers in 1522.
There are several museums like the Museo Nacional de Costa Rica to explore in the city. But the Museo de Oro (Golden Museum) really interested me. Not only full of sparkling gold artwork, but before the arrival of the Spaniards, they represented the figures in Colombia. (In addition, the neighboring gift shop has sold copies of these unique items to bring home as friends and family.)
Historical scientists and architectural lovers may be disappointed to see that most of the buildings in the capital date back to the 1800s, not just during the colonial period. The influential Metropolitan Cathedral of San Jose was built in place of the original structure destroyed by an earthquake in the late 19th century. The newest, but best-loved historic building in San Jose, the Costa Rican National Theater, has been established since the late 19th century. Now this year, celebrating its 117th anniversary, it is known for its pink marble and elegant interior, but also has an elegant Vienna-style coffee shop. Ludwig van Beethoven and 21st Century guests watch in front of two statues in front of the 17th-century Spanish playwright Calderón de La Barca.
After leaving San Jose and traveling to the countryside, it is easy to see that Costa Rica is one of the best eco-tourism destinations in the world, providing a convenient travel destination for travelers. Rain forests, parks and wildlife sanctuaries make up 25% of the country. Though the square mile is small, Costa Rica has the world's richest biodiversity. In line with the green focus, the government voluntarily implemented a program to achieve 2007 carbon neutrality. Highly photogenic Red-eyed wood frogs are often described to represent the vibrant nature of Costa Rica. As I have found, you don't have to go very far to see colorful patterns. From my hotel room, I joined breakfast each morning with one of the 26 local species, flying low. Rainforests, with varying levels of 3-4, allow you to see the slopes in the trees and the monkeys on the attic; However, intense growth can make it difficult for them to stain.
The third option is available to those traveling alone who are trying to get up to speed. In addition to quiet bird watching and wildlife photography, Costa Rica offers ample opportunities for climbing over hills or adventuring alone, down the waterfalls at LaFortuna / Arenal. Six to seven rivers have whitening waters while both beaches offer snorkeling and scuba diving. Although the Arenal volcano did not attract the evening crowd after a 2010 night eruption, six large volcanoes remain for trekking. The emerging hot springs are still an ideal place for the Happy Hour to watch the sunset. Not ready, I was glad to see that the gift shop sells attractive beach clothes in bright tropical colors, even though it is a bit short!
Finally, no trip to Costa Rica can be completed without visiting the Pacific Ocean to the west and more than 300 beaches from the quieter Caribbean Sea to the east. I recommend to try both sides.
Having a local home in San Jose in Central Valley was ideal for me because it was an easy day trip to the tropical forests, but easily accessible by beaches and boats. For Solo travelers, the quality and prices were definitely excellent. If you can't decide whether you want to go to the Caribbean or Latin America, Costa Rica gives you more "2-for-the-1" than those who often find "1-for-the-1". price-of-2 "! If you are looking for a Boomer trip or a millennial adventure, go ahead and add Costa Rica to your bucket list.
