When you’re ready to enjoy gorgeous nature, marvel at exotic wildlife, participate in exciting outdoor adventures, and surf some of the best waves in the world, it can sometimes be difficult to know whether to choose Hawaii or Costa Rica for your next vacation. Although both destinations are popular, we would definitely recommend Costa Rica every time.
Here are 10 great reasons to choose Costa Rica over Hawaii:
As much as travelers hate to admit it, cost is always an important consideration. Whether it’s food, getting around, or lodging, Costa Rica is far more affordable than Hawaii.
Both Hawaii and Costa Rica are famous for balmy temperatures and abundant sunshine, but Costa Rica is blessed by two different tidal patterns that keep the water always warm and welcoming.
Not everyone is interested in the beach, and both Costa Rica and Hawaii have bio-diverse forests famous for their beauty and wildlife. Costa Rica’s unique geography means there are 13 different ecosystems to visit.
Costa Rica is world famous for being home to 10% of all known butterfly species and a staggering 4% of the total known species worldwide. Quite literally, Costa Rica is the most bio-diverse country on the planet.
One of the best parts about visiting Costa Rica is how easy it is to get around. Whether you rent your own vehicle, take a domestic flight, or rely on public buses, there’s nowhere you can’t easily reach in Costa Rica.
Whether it’s due to living in one of the most beautiful places on earth or just their natural inclination, Ticos (as Costa Rican people are known) are a friendly, amiable, and happy people.
Whether you’re looking for the tallest waterfall or the best secluded beach ideal for swimming and surfing, Costa Rica simply has more options.
Whether you want to hike the rim of a volcano, travel through a cloud forest, or relax on a beach, you can enjoy a wonderful time in one of Costa Rica’s many national parks.
Costa Rica is home to a mind-boggling array of interesting wildlife, including animals that you won’t find in Hawaii like jaguars, monkeys, sloths, ocelots, and sea turtles.
A True Paradise
Hawaii is often what people think of as a true paradise, but Costa Rica is far less crowded, far more pristine, and still has plenty of isolated, remote areas.
