Have you been thinking about taking a beach vacation to Costa Rica? If so, you’re in for one of the most memorable times of your life!

  • 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.
  • 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 as memorable as possible.
