What to Pack for Costa Rica

When you’re packing for a vacation, it requires a lot of thought. This is especially true when you’re taking a trip to another country. Traveling the world is exciting – but if you’re not prepared, you won’t enjoy your time away from home. Before you hop on the plane to Costa Rica and the Ylang Ylang Beach Resort, here are some packing tips to make sure you are ready for any situation:

  • Research the climate before your trip. It only takes few minutes to find out what the weather will be like when you arrive in Costa Rica. Just because it’s a tropical destination doesn’t mean the weather is always grand.
  • Even if the forecast calls for sunny, warm weather during your entire stay, pack for the unexpected. A rain storm can quickly put a damper on your vacation if you don’t have the right gear.
  • Always pack a light jacket. You never know when an overcast sky or unexpected storm will drop the temperature a few degrees. A light jacket ensures that you stay comfortable, even with a slight chill in the air.
  • Pack several styles of shoes. You want shoes for walking and hiking, of course. You also want shoes for a night out on the town. You may not be planning to go out on the town, but you never know when the mood for nightlife might hit you.

Taking the time to pack appropriately for your Costa Rican vacation will help you enjoy your trip to the fullest.

Do I Need a Travel Agent?

Taking a vacation to another country is sure to be one of the most rewarding, enjoyable times of your life. Planning that vacation takes some effort. A vacation in your own country is easy enough – all you need to do is pick a destination, make a reservation and go. A vacation in another country involves more time and attention to detail. So, should you let a travel agent handle your vacation plans? Or are you equipped with the knowledge needed to plan your foreign trip on your own? Here are some tips to help you decide:

  • Are you familiar with the required documentation needed to leave the country? If not, a travel agent may be the best route. He or she can help make sure you have all the necessary paperwork. Your agent will also make sure you don’t overlook something essential.
  • Are you familiar with your destination? You need a solid understanding of your destination to ensure that you pack appropriately. An understanding of local customs is also helpful. A reputable agent has the knowledge to make sure you know everything you need to know about your destination.
  • Are you savvy when it comes to finding the best travel deals? If you’re an experienced traveler, you probably already know where to find the best rates. If you’re new to foreign travel, an agent can locate those money-saving deals for you.

As you plan your visit to the Ylang Ylang in Costa Rica, or another foreign destination, be sure to weigh the pros and cons of hiring an agent to help you.

Tips for Choosing the Best Beach Resort in Costa Rica

Finding the best beach resort in Costa Rica may seem like a daunting task, thanks to the many quality resorts available. You may even think that where you stay doesn’t matter – after all, it’s all in Costa Rica, right? Just because a resort is in one of the most beautiful countries in the world, doesn’t mean it’s the best place to stay. Here are some tips for choosing the perfect resort for your Costa Rican vacation:

  • Choose a resort that has its own private beaches. With private beaches, you don’t have to worry about fighting the crowds for your time in the sand. Many of the luxury resorts have private beaches that are strictly for guests.
  • Do a little bit of research on a resort before you book your room. The best resorts have websites you can visit that include pictures of the surroundings. Pay attention to these pictures and make sure that the beaches are clean and spacious.
  • Talk to the staff of potential resorts before making your reservations. Ask questions about the beaches, such as how big the beach area is, if there are any beach activities, and other pertinent questions.
  • Choose the resort that offers the beaches you desire, but is also still close enough to the other activities you want to enjoy during your stay. For example, the Ylang Ylang has a beautiful stretch of white, sandy beaches for guest use – but we’re also located only a few minutes away from Montezuma, to ensure that our guests have the full Costa Rican experience.

Recapture the Romance in Costa Rica

When you have been in a relationship with the same person for many years, it’s not uncommon to hit a  plateau, especially in the romance department.

Before you know it, romance has taken a back burner to work and family. One of the best ways to put the passion back into your relationship is with a romantic vacation to Costa Rica.

Costa Rica is one of the most breathtaking countries in the world. Its lush greenery and expansive beaches appeal to people from all over the world. Costa Rica also has a natural ambiance of romance. There’s just something special about sharing time together in a tropical location, away from the turmoil of everyday life. What better way to connect with your partner again, than to whisk her off to Costa Rica for a romantic getaway?

Tips for Planning a Resort Vacation

Taking a vacation should be an enjoyable time for you. Your  vacation is a time to relax, have some fun, and just get away from it all. Going to a resort is a great way to make sure you have access to everything you need. Reputable resorts ensure their guests relax, partake in activities and enjoy themselves in a myriad of ways by offering more than just a room for sleeping. If you’re planning a resort vacation for the first time, here are some helpful tips to get you started:

  • Choose your desired destination first, then start looking for a suitable resort. Decide where you want to spend your vacation – the mountains, the beach, a tropical island, etc.
  • Once you have your destination in mind, start researching resorts in the area. Make a list of potential resorts, then visit their websites and contact the staff.
  • Ask lots of questions about each resort. Find out their rates, of course, but also find out what sort of onsite activities they offer. For example, the Ylang Ylang has a luxury spa ready and waiting for its guests, as well as immediate access to secluded beaches.
  • Find out about any packages or vacation specials available – the less you have to stretch your budget, the more money you’ll have for local events and activities.
  • Narrow your list to two resorts. Make your final decision based on personal preferences, such as budget, location and level of luxury.

Vacationing Within Your Financial Means

Taking a relaxing vacation in Costa Rica may seem like an impossible dream – but the Ylang Ylang is here to help make your dreams come true! Costa Rica is one of the most popular tropical destinations in the world. Even the rich and famous eventually find their way to the pristine beaches and warm ocean waters. This doesn’t mean Costa Rica is an impossible destination for the average person. No matter what your budget, you can still enjoy an unforgettable trip here.

The secret in planning your Costa Rican vacation is to vacation within your means. Just because you can’t afford the most luxurious accommodations doesn’t mean you can’t find something comparable and affordable. For example, the Ylang Ylang Beach Resort is a luxury beach resort, but we also have a sister hotel nearby for those guests that may have more of a limited budget. We take great pride in both our beach resort and our sister hotel, so you never have to worry about the level of quality – you’ll always get our best effort, no matter where you stay.

In addition to choosing accommodations you can afford, plan affordable activities. Remember: you don’t have to spend every hour of your vacation taking part in an expensive activity. Instead, you can spend hours relaxing in the sun and sand or taking a nature hike – for free. Use your imagination and discover affordable ways to experience the beauty of Costa Rica. And, ask our friendly staff for help.

After a refreshing dip in the water or a few hours soaking up the sun, you can make your way back to your private piece of paradise and observe the native wildlife in their natural habitat while relaxing on your terrace!

Ylang Ylang Beach Resort Introduces New Solar Power Resources

Protecting and preserving the environment is never far from the minds of Costa Rican inhabitants. Costa Rica thrives on ecotourism – and if the environment is not preserved and protected, that ecotourism will quickly dwindle away. Here at the Ylang Ylang Beach Resort, we know how important it is to protect the environment that surrounds our luxury hotel. That’s why we are proud to announce the completion of our solar garden project.

Our solar garden project consists of a variety of solar panels installed throughout our resort grounds. These panels harness the power of the sun – solar energy that’s used to operate various electrical components of our resort. Guests can turn on the air conditioners in their rooms, plug in their electronic devices, and even enjoy a relaxing drink in the bar – all while knowing the electricity is being generated by solar energy. Through the use of solar panels, we’ve taken one more step toward diminishing our carbon footprint on the planet and preserving the natural surroundings that bring joy to so many Costa Rican inhabitants and visitors.

Here at the Ylang Ylang, we take environmental preservation seriously, and we encourage our guests to do the same. With the completion of our solar garden project, we’ve helped make it possible for guests to enjoy their Costa Rican vacations without worrying about wasting resources or energy. In other words, when you visit the Ylang Ylang, you’re helping to protect the environment that you enjoy so much! Vacationing just got better and more energy-efficient here at the Ylang Ylang.

  • 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 and the weather for each.
  • Choose the Costa Rican destination and accommodations that keep you in close proximity to the beach.  You don’t want to spend your vacation traveling back and forth to the beach every day. A stay at the Ylang Ylang puts you in walking distance of the beach for immediate gratification.
  • Think beyond 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.

Comparing Different Types of Vacations


Taking a vacation is very exciting – and can be a little stressful, as well. The excitement comes from knowing that you’re getting some relaxing time away from home. The stress comes from planning the details of the vacation. The first step toward your relaxing getaway is choosing a destination. Comparing the types of vacations available may help make your decision a little bit easier.

  • Taking a tropical vacation is one of the most popular choices for travelers. The reason so many people enjoy tropical vacations is because of the weather and the atmosphere. You can enjoy a wide range of activities such as snorkeling, scuba diving, sport fishing, bike tours and horseback riding on the beach. Or you may feel more like soaking up the sun, swimming in warm ocean waters, and relaxing on a sandy beach in a tropical environment – it truly is a dream come true.
  • Mountain vacations are more popular among adventurous travelers. Mountains provide the perfect backdrop for camping, hiking, fishing, skiing, and other outdoor activities. The weather can be temperamental in the mountains, so keep that in mind if you’re seeking one particular climate.
  • Amusement park vacations are ideal for families. Places like Disney World are major attractions to families. These types of vacations ensure that the kids are always happy and busy – but can be quite wearing on the parents. If rest and relaxation is on your agenda, you may want to forgo the amusement park vacation.

Take a Surprise Vacation

The holiday season is almost here! Now is the perfect time to start planning some of your holiday gifts. What better way to surprise that special someone than with the best tropical vacation ever? That’s right – giving the gift of a surprise getaway, especially during the cold months of winter, will definitely earn you some brownie points!

Here at the Ylang Ylang, we’d love to help you surprise your significant other with a relaxing trip to our tropical resort. A stay at the Ylang Ylang is sure to be like nothing you’ve ever experienced. We offer some of the most luxurious accommodations you can find, including luxury suites and private bungalows.

Enjoy a leisurely stroll, just the two of you, through the surrounding nature preserve. You’ll see amazing wildlife in their natural habitats – almost close enough to touch! Then, you can soak up some warm rays on the white beaches as you sip a cold drink. Follow up your day in the sun with a restorative trip to our luxury spa for a couples massage. Then, finish your evening with a romantic dinner for two – right on the moonlit beach.

Tips for Planning Your Off-Season Vacation

The seasons are clearly changing – that means it’s a great time to start planning your vacation. Taking a vacation during a time when the tourist season has died down is the perfect way to enjoy time away from home. Taking an off-season vacation allows you to enjoy some of the most beautiful destinations in the world – and at a more affordable price. Here are some tips for planning your off-season vacation.

  • Choose your destination with the same amount of care you’d use during the regular season. There’s a reason for the off-season – sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate or there are fewer activities. Do some research to make sure your desired destination is suitable for your vacation.
  • Research your accommodations. Many hotels and resorts have special package deals during their off-seasons. Contact the hotel or resort of your choice and find out what price-saving offers they are currently running.
  • Use the internet to find other ways to save money. For instance, you can compare various prices of airline tickets with just a few clicks of your mouse. Travel during the off-season to a destination is often more affordable than peak tourist season travel.
  • Pack accordingly. Expect the unexpected, especially when it comes to the weather. You’ll enjoy your vacation during the off-season as long as you’re prepared for the environment.

General Travel Prep Tips from the Ylang Ylang

Before you travel to Costa Rica, you have a lot of preparations to make. You can’t just hop on a plane and jet off to Costa Rica on a whim, especially if you’ve never traveled out of the country before. Here are some general traveling tips to keep in mind before you set off for Costa Rica.

  • Paperwork, paperwork, paperwork – you absolutely must ensure you have all the necessary paperwork in place before planning your trip. Make sure your Passport and tickets make it out the door with you to the airport.
  • Pack accordingly – once your paperwork is in order and you choose your vacation dates, start doing some climate research to ensure that you pack properly. Costa Rica, with all of its beauty, does have its own off-season. While you can save money during the off-season, you have to make sure you pack for the weather.
  • Enlist expert help – traveling out of the country, especially for the first time, can be intimidating. You have to make all your plans without any firsthand experience of your destination. Hiring a travel agent to help you map out the details can relieve the stress associated with traveling out of the country. Once you’re a seasoned traveler, you can plan your trips like a pro!

Preserving and Conserving in Costa Rica

When you travel to Costa Rica, be prepared to see some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. You likely made plans that will immerse you in the natural surroundings and local activities. You may not realize it – but you are participating in ecotourism in Costa Rica.

Ecotourism is tourism centered on the preservation and conservation of natural surroundings. In Costa Rica, this means that activities and resorts are a part of the surroundings. Rather than intrude upon the beautiful, natural habitat of the native creatures, towns and cities do their best to blend in with the environment, and leave a small footprint.

Ecotourism keeps Costa Rica thriving. People flock here from all over the world to experience some of the magic of our untouched environment. From the jungles to the beaches, Costa Rica is a protected environment meant to preserve its natural beauty. You, as a tourist, can still enjoy all the activities that Costa Rica has to offer – you just get the privilege of enjoying them the way nature intended.

As you plan your visit to Costa Rica, be sure to keep the Ylang Ylang Beach Resort in mind when thinking about accommodations. Here, you’ll be surrounded by nature and all of its wonder, as our resort was designed to be unobtrusive in the environment. With nature preserves surrounding our resort, Montezuma only minutes away, and the beach part of the resort grounds, there’s no better way to support ecotourism while you have an amazing vacation.

Experience Yoga in a Breathtaking Landscape

Exercise should be a part of your everyday life. Experts recommend getting a certain amount of exercise every week. Exercise helps keep your body in shape and contributes to your overall health. Failure to exercise can lead to weight gain and other issues. You have to keep moving if you want to stay healthy. One of the most popular forms of exercise involves more than just exercise for the body – it also involves exercise for the mind and the soul. Yoga not only helps keep your body in shape, it helps restore balance in your life.

Here at the Ylang Ylang, we understand that even though our guests are on vacation, they still want to keep up with their active lifestyle. That’s why we offer yoga sessions on the beach. Yoga in Costa Rica is different than practicing yoga anywhere else. Here, you’ll savor the crisp morning air as the waves dance on the shores, providing you with nature’s music during your yoga session. Our instructors are experts in yoga. They’ll invigorate your mind, body and soul through the various exercises. Your body will stretch and flex while your mind is calmed and your soul is restored.

When you come to the Ylang Ylang, be sure to schedule at least one yoga session on the beach. It’s an experience you’ll never forget – and likely one that you’ll want to repeat again and again. Contact us today to learn more about our yoga sessions, as well as our many other guest activities.
