If there ever was a true Garden of Eden, surely, it must be in Costa Rica. This small country is one of the most bio-diverse places on the planet with plenty of adventure and excitement for everyone. Whether it’s navigating down pristine jungle rivers, spotting exotic wildlife, or surfing great waves, Costa Rica is definitely the best place to enjoy an outdoor adventure.
Many people come to Costa Rica for a “fitcation,” a somewhat silly word that combines all of the relaxation and unwinding of a vacation with plenty of outdoor activities to keep you fit. And Costa Rica, truly, is a great place to stay (or get) in shape. After all, it has mountains and volcanoes, balmy year-round weather, and an astoundingly beautiful eco-system where exotic birds, flowers, and animals are everywhere you look.
One of the most popular destinations in Costa Rica to enjoy outdoor activities is the Pacific Coast. The area between Quepos and the Manuel Antonio National Forest is home to more surf spots than anywhere else in the country, protected natural habitats, lovely beachfront towns, and a ton of great activities such as stand-up paddling on coastal estuaries, yoga on the beach, bird watching, horseback riding, and much more.
If you’re coming to Costa Rica for an adventure vacation, be sure to visit the Manuel Antonio Surf School and Camp (MASS). Based in Manuel Antonio as well as Dominical on the Pacific Coast, MASS specializes in teaching the finer points of surfing to surfers of all ability levels, including first-time beginners. MASS employs an expert team of local surf pros who are certified in water safety and advanced wave motion techniques so that surfers of all ability levels can make the most of their time in the water.
MASS also organizes a wide range of complimentary activities that you can enjoy while in Costa Rica. MASS can take you to the amazingly beautiful Nauyacan Waterfall in the middle of the jungle where you can swim in the waters at the base or enjoy a natural waterslide. MASS also can take you kayaking or stand-up paddling along rivers and estuaries, the perfect place to explore the lush natural environment that makes Costa Rica so special.
MASS also offers a number of other activities, including hikes to hidden beaches, a visit to a natural hot spring, professional massages, and meeting with locals to learn more about the culture or to practice your Spanish.
