If you’re looking for an innovative and amazing way to surprise the special woman in your life, why not consider a surfing trip to Costa Rica?
Just a short flight from the United States, Costa Rica is one of the natural wonders of the world. Its incredibly varied landscape is home to the greatest abundance of flowers, plants, birds, insects, and animals on the planet. More than 500,000 species have been recorded in Costa Rica, including 900 species of birds, 1,250 species of butterflies, and 250 different species of mammals.
And despite being a relatively small country, there’s a lot to see in Costa Rica, including cloud forests, volcanoes, breathtakingly beautiful beaches, and lush tropical rainforests. There are rivers ideal for canoeing or whitewater rafting, jungle waterfalls perfect for playing and swimming, and hundreds of miles of estuaries ideal for exploring by canoe or stand-up paddleboard.
Of course, the main attraction in Costa Rica is the world-class surfing. A combination of tidal patterns and the shape of the coast mean that big swells can be found all year-round. With warm, clear water, an abundance of golden sunshine, and lovely verdant backdrops, there simply is no better place to enjoy surfing with your girlfriend than in Costa Rica.
Traveling to Costa Rica for a surf trip is about much more than just your time together on the waves. When couples travel together, they form stronger bonds. Scientists have even proven that visiting healthy, green places with an abundance of fresh air and nature is also good for your health as well. Whether it’s reducing symptoms of depression and naturally boosting your mood, lowering blood pressure, healing skin ailments, or reducing stress, spending time outdoors together can do wonders for your mental and physical health.
Surfing is also a great form of exercise that improves hand and eye coordination while tightening and toning core abdominal muscles. Surfing is often thought of as a solo sport, but this simply isn’t true. Laughing together, encouraging one another, and enjoying being out in the great outdoors make surfing a fabulous activity for couples.
