The country beats to an altogether different drum, a much slower, more considerate drum, one that doesn’t rush you through experiences but forces you to savor them, slowly. If savoring more of life is one of your New Year’s resolutions, then you’ve definitely landed in the right place.

Here are some seriously good ideas for New Year’s resolutions – only in Costa Rica!

Spend more time in nature – get out there and enjoy Costa Rica’s wilderness

Spending more time in nature has untold health benefits. Not only does it lower stress levels and improve mental clarity, but it revitalizes and energizes. The amazing thing about spending time in nature? The more you do, the more active you’ll naturally become!

Being active in nature is one of Costa Rica’s most revered calling cards. The country that invented ziplining in verdant forests brings you white water rafting in pristine jungles, horseback riding along dreamy beaches, and snorkeling in some of the world’s most enriched reefs. 

If being more active in your everyday life and prioritizing your wellbeing are important goals for your New Year, there’s no better place to get the ball rolling.

Come to Costa Rica and see all the sensational Tamarindo tours and excursions we have in store for you.

Be more sociable – meet new people, local and international, and discover a new you

It happens to us all. At some stage, typically by our mid-20s, we realize we continually hang out with the same friends, in the same places, doing the same things. Meeting new people and broadening our social horizons becomes more difficult as time passes. Eventually, and without us realizing it, we are stuck in a social rut.

Time to bust out of that bubble!

When you head out on vacation in Costa Rica, be it solo or with a friend, a whole new social world opens up to you. Not only do you open the door to what is arguably one of the friendliest cultures in the world, but you also have the chance to meet like-minded travelers, from every corner of the globe. 

Costa Rica is an active traveler’s magnet and if being more sociable is right up the top of your New Year’s resolution list, then you could not choose more ideal spot. Especially if you love traveling solo.

Learn the art of relaxation – time to take the Pura Vida vibe to a new level

Everyone dreams of ‘relaxing’ on vacation yet, for many, the ‘sweet art of doing nothing’ is too torturous an indulgence. In our modern lives, we are constantly bombarded with ‘projects’ and told that, to be happy, we must be productive.

Well, in paradise, productive has a whole other meaning.

In Costa Rica, being lulled by the waves of the ocean or entranced by swaying palm trees is a way of life. Whether it’s finding inner calm in the gentle sway of a hammock suspended between palm trees, a leisurely walk along a pristine beach, or simply soaking up the splendor of a sunset over the horizon, Costa Rica teaches you the invaluable skill of slowing down and soaking up the beauty of your surroundings.

Try something new and adventurous – learn a new skill and surprise yourself

Costa Rica offers a fantastic array of adventurous activities, from zip-lining through the jungle canopy to white water rafting over tumultuous rapids and surfing wicked waves along the Pacific coast. All of these allow you to jump right out of your comfort zone, try new things, and discover hidden talents you never knew you had. These kinds of physical challenges foster personal growth and can cast you off on a journey of self-discovery in the process.

Surfing is, by far, the single most popular activity in Costa Rica. And no wonder. With year-round perfect balmy temperatures both in and out of the sea, a plethora of extraordinary beaches to suit newbies and world-class surf camps (like us here, at Iguana Surf), Costa Rica has been rated as the world’s top surfing mecca for decades.
