Join the Adventure!
Costa Rica is the 3rd smallest country in Central America, but when it comes to nature, wildlife and eco-adventure there is a mind-boggling abundance. Charmingly small, Costa Rica is an explosion of colorful nature and culture, filled with limitless adventure.
Known for being one of the best tropical destinations for kiteboarders and adventure seekers, Costa Rica is the perfect place for your next kiteboarding vacation and here’s why:
1. CONSISTENT WIND IN A TROPICAL SETTING: A KITEBOARDER'S DREAM
During season November to April the wind blows every day, all day!
The top 2 windiest spots in Costa Rica are Bahia Salinas and Lake Arenal.
Bahia Salinas is considered one of the windiest places in Central America.
Lake Arenal is one of the most beautiful and stunning locations you will ever have the pleasure to visit.
These 2 spots make Costa Rica the perfect place to learn how to kiteboard or advance your kiteboarding skills.
2. WORD CLASS ECO-ADVENTURES
Costa Rica is famous worldwide for eco-adventures. A variety of habitats that feature different terrains, varying climates, dry forests, rainforests, cloud forests, rivers, waterfalls, 2 oceans and tropical beaches are the perfect setting for adventures in harmony with nature.
Costa Rica is known for its advanced policies surrounding sustainability, and is proudly, the only country to have achieved all five of the conditions named to meet the United Nations Global Development criteria for environmental sustainability. Furthermore, Costa Rica is working hard to become the 1st carbon-neutral country by 2021.
3. EXOTIC WILDLIFE
More than 25% of land in Costa Rica has a protected status. Our small country is home to nearly 5% of the world’s species. At Bahia Salinas, Isla Bolaños National Wildlife Refuge sits in the middle of the bay protecting some of the most important rookeries of the country. How liberating to soar through the air with the local avifauna!
Arenal Volcano National Park is known for its delightful cloud forest hot springs, active volcano and wildlife, including jaguars, tree frogs and a galore of beautiful and colorful birds.
4. ITS PEOPLE AND THE 'PURA VIDA' LIFESTYLE
Costa Ricans, known locally as Ticos, are warm hearted and friendly people. Costa Rica consistently makes the top 15 happiest countries in the world in the World Happiness Report.
Ticos live a laid back peaceful ‘Pura Vida’ lifestyle. ‘Pura Vida’ literally translates to “pure life,” but it means so much more! ‘Pura Vida’ is representative of our culture, of living life to the fullest and enjoying the moment. The phrase is used generously as a greeting, farewell, thank you or good wishes. It can also mean many things such as “full of life,” “this is the life” or “going great!”. It truly is our way of life.
5. DELICIOUS AND HEALTHY EATING
Enjoy and explore a burst of wondrous tropical fruit that comes in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes you couldn’t even imagine. Typical Costa Rican meals are well-rounded for nutritional balance, and healthy for the active lifestyle.
A staple to our cuisine are black beans and rice, which we eat for breakfast as “gallo pinto” with eggs and toast and with our typical meal the “casado”, the name referring to the eternal "marriage" of its components: rice, beans, meat or fish, fried plantains, vegetables and salad.
