Costa Rica is a Central American country, and many know that tourism is one of its most essential values. Not for nothing, it is considered one of the most visited international destinations. Although the country is small and is only part of 0.03% of the planet, it’s a sanctuary for 5% of the existing biodiversity in the world.
“Pura Vida” is what people repeat as music, a musical note that sounds from generation to generation to remember the country’s philosophy. In just 51,000 square kilometers, one person can find sun, beach, adventure, nature, and culture. So, in a single tour, you’ll have options for all tastes, whether with family or friends.
At Perfect Sunset School, it’s vital to live in a healthy environment in our daily routines or at least to know those places. Stay with us and learn from them, collecting knowledge that can help you improve your lifestyle.
For this reason, we want to share several reasons why Costa Rica is a Surf Paradise:
Living in a Surf Paradise is to be part of Costa Rica that, in 2021, became the first country to be carbon neutral in the world. Sustainable practices spread throughout the country. In every corner, you can see how visitors and citizens adopt this lifestyle. In addition, sustainability is deeply embedded in Costa Rican culture and traditions, from local Costa Rican cuisine to crafts, traditional customs, and festivals.
People are proud to live and protect the country’s natural environment because, as we mentioned above, it has 5% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity and 3.5 % of marine life. Also, Costa Rica produces almost 93% of its electricity from renewable resources, and 30% of its territory is protected as natural land.
A green jewel in sustainability, Costa Rica is a model for sustainable practices for many industries in the region and worldwide.
2. Perfect Climate
Just a few degrees above the equator, in Costa Rica, you can enjoy perfect tropical weather throughout the year; even National Geographic mentions Costa Rica as having one of the best climates in the world.
Diverse and unique, this small country can experience many climate zones with several isolated micro-climates where temperatures fluctuate more according to location and elevation than in a season. Extreme climates are practically non-existent. The average temperature goes about 10 degrees from one season to another.
3. New friends
One of the things that makes Costa Rica not only a surf paradise is that people from all over the world come here. As a result, Costa Rica has become a sanctuary for many people who want a peaceful life.
At Perfect Sunset School, every day will be full of learning, new adventures, fun activities, and great moments because our hotel has been home to many people. Here, we are excited and passionate about the idea of seeing how our visitors build strong friendships that last over time after they come here.
4. Cultural diversity
Cultural exchanges have always had a significant value in countries. At Perfect Sunset School, cultural diversity allows us to have the best conversations with different topics, broaden our horizons, get to know other cultures, and live with realities different from ours. It generates an excellent capacity for tolerance to difference. It allows the improvement of languages. Close ties and deepen the knowledge that exists throughout the world.
We know that art and culture do not present language barriers and enriching an experience such as a Surf Paradise will be the best option.
Whether you want to relax in a hammock on a beach with a beer and a book or have extreme adventures in a surf paradise, Costa Rica offers a fantastic lifestyle for those seeking to enjoy the natural beauty of the world and the simple pleasures in life.
Costa Rica also offers several options for a lifestyle that will ensure you never get bored; you can walk to the local farmers market for fresh food or drive on a modern highway to a big shopping mall or luxury chain stores.
In the same way, you can fill your days with activities, such as fishing, hiking, surfing, or diving; or you can choose to sunbathe on the beach, perhaps taking a break to dip your toes in the water and search for shells in the sand. Whatever you choose, the general ethos of Costa Rica is that you should enjoy doing it and live as stress-free an existence as possible in a perfect surf paradise.
All of us who have spent time in a surf paradise know it affects our body, mind, and soul. Some are even more connected and thrive in life the closer they are to the ocean. For example, the sea breeze is good for sleeping because the air is usually cleaner and fresher, with higher levels of oxygen that can improve sleep.
The sound of waves can be very relaxing for the brain. Relaxing can help clear your mind, lowering stress levels and strengthening your immune system.
Spending a few minutes in a salty environment offers excellent benefits for the skin and works as a natural exfoliating exercise. Likewise, salty air is also great for your lungs, and sand can be helpful when mixed with salt water to cleanse your skin further.
