Costa Rica would be a place I would be very interested in traveling to. Rica is known for its beaches, volcano’s, and biodiversity. Roughly a quarter of its area is made up of protected jungle and teeming with wildlife including spiders, monkeys and quetzal birds.
Costa Rica has an average temperature of 70 to 81 degrees Fahrenheit. Due to its proximity to the equator, it has no real summer or winter. It does however have a rainy season from May to November. The best time to visit Costa Rica is from mid-December to April (the dry season). The dry season is the most popular time to visit. April is the hottest month in Costa Rica with an average temperature of 82 degrees. The coldest month is January with an average temperature of 79 degrees. When it rains in Costa Rica it can come down really hard but it usually does not last for too long. A typical day in the rainy season starts off beautiful and sunny, with clouds starting to build, and then heavy rain or thunderstorms come in the late afternoon or evening.
Costa Rica has a bunch of fun activities to do with friends and family as well. Visit amazing waterfalls, zip-lining, white water rafting, visit, horseback riding, sunset sailing cruise, snorkeling or scuba diving, massage on the beach, surfing, beach hop, water slides in the middle of the jungle, paddle boarding and so much more. This would be a good vacation to bring your children on. Go do a bunch of fun activities and make memories with your family.
Very popular foods in Costa Rica is this breakfast bowl called Gallo Pinto It is made with rice, beans, some onions and peppers. Another famous food is this dish called Casado. It consist of rice, beans, salad, tortillas, french fries and your choice of meat. A famous dessert that is is eaten in Costa Rica is called Arroz con Leche. It is rice mixed with milk but it taste way better than what it sounds like. The recipe also calls for sugar, salt, lemon zest, and cinnamon sticks. Costa Rica is also well known for its gourmet coffee beans with the famous Tarrazu considered among the most finest beans in the world.
Costa Rica is considered one of the safest countries in Central America. Costa Rica is still a Third World country, meaning the poor far outnumber the middle class and rich. The legacy of decades of deforestation is often cited as one of the main environmental issues facing Costa Rica. I think if you want to go to Costa Rica you have to plan to go at the right month. It would suck if you traveled there with your whole family and it rained the whole time. It is also hard to find time that works for your whole families schedules. I would recommend going in mid-December over Christmas break. That is when it is the dry season there and it is the hottest for the temperature. Christmas break always a good time to travel with the family.
