Tips for Taking a Beach Vacation in Costa Rica

Have you been thinking about taking a beach vacation to Costa Rica? If so, you are in for one of the most memorable times of your life! However, as with planning any vacation, it is always important to make sure you address every detail before setting out. Here are some tips to help you plan the perfect Costa Rican beach vacation:


  • Take the weather into consideration when choosing the dates for your vacation. Like any other place in the world, there are ideal times for visiting Costa Rica. Talk to your travel agent or reach out to the staff here at the Ylang Ylang to learn more about Costa Rica’s primary tourist season, as well as the off-season.


  • Choose the Costa Rican destination and accommodations that will keep you in close proximity to the beach. The last thing you want to do is waste precious time traveling back and forth to the beach, every day. A stay at the Ylang Ylang will put you within walking distance of the beach for immediate gratification!


  • Think outside of swimming and soaking up the sun. There are various activities you can enjoy on the beach and in the warm, tropical waters of Costa Rica. Talk to the hotel staff to learn more about local beach activities being offered.


  • Plan for the unexpected. You may find one or two days when going to the beach is not the best option, perhaps due to the weather or another unforeseen circumstance. Make sure you have other activities in mind to help fill in the downtime and make your Costa Rican vacation even more memorable.
