Costa Rica is the perfect place to spend the holidays
The wonderful thing about celebrating Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukah or New Year’s in Costa Rica is that you can include the entire family, from the tiniest tot, to great Aunt Edna. Or, you can escape all that chaos and get away; just the two of you. The team at Distinctive Hotels of Costa Rica can help you find the perfect vacation destination in beautiful Costa Rica, and choose the hotel or resort that is just the right fit for you and your family or group.
From romantic destinations such as Peace Lodge in Vara Blanca, Hotel FlorBlanca in Santa Teresa, or Villas Caleta near Jaco, to family adventures like those to be found at Nicuesa Lodge in the Golfo Dulce, or Hotel Capitan Suizo in Tamarindo, there are an abundance of amazing places to choose from. Surfers in the family will be all over the Central Pacific’s Alma del Pacifico, and the more adventurous will love the river rafting near Casa Turire in Turrialba, while nature lovers are going to be in heaven staying at Hotel Belmar in Montverde. And finally, of course, for those with family and friends in San Jose, Hotel Grano de Oro is the perfect home-base for central valley holiday celebrations.
Here are a few tips for making your holidays in Costa Rica the gift that they should be:
- Air travel during the holidays can be hectic, but the team at Distinctive Hotels of Costa Rica can ease the stress by helping to coordinate itineraries and airport transfers.
- Holiday meals become a thing of pure joy and pleasure when there is no cooking or cleaning to be done. The hotels and resorts in our wonderful portfolio will typically create an enchanting evening for you, complete with the culinary delights of their wonderful chefs. Ask your hotel concierge for recommendations, whether it be dinner in the hotel restaurant or something (maybe) even more spectacular nearby.
- Although there is no better gift than travel, we all still love giving- and opening- those brightly colored packages during the holidays. Still, the current realities of travel have made lots of baggage a thing of the past. This year, do your shopping online and print out pictures of your gifts. Then, surprise your loved ones on Christmas or Hanukah mornings with a holiday envelope which contains promises of all the fun things that will be waiting upon your return home.
For a simpler, more festive holiday celebration, a vacation to Costa Rica means you can relax and enjoy while the concierge at your hotel or resort takes care of the rest.
Costa Rica’s holiday celebrations begin in early December and run through the first week of January, with many colorful festivals and parades. As in other Latin American countries, Christmas and New Year’s in Costa Rica are colorful, joyful celebrations.
Why not try something new this year? Forget about the snow, the cooking and cleaning, the gift wrapping and crowded malls. Instead, give the gift of travel. It’s easy: just make reservations and happy memories.
