Tom Brady’s retirement was short-lived, which surprised almost no one, but one thing that isn’t short-lived is Brady’s love of post-season vacation in Costa Rica . NFL star Brady and his wife, elite international supermodel Gisele Bündchen, were spotted in Costa Rica not long ago.
To locals, the appearance is no surprise. Brady and Bündchen travel to the country every year after football season, and they showed up a little early in 2022 in the wake of Brady’s soon-to-be-over retirement.
But what may surprise some people is that Brady and Bündchen are far from the only international celebrities who show up in sunny Costa Rica on the regular. In fact, Costa Rica is a bona fide celebrity haven. And there are a few great reasons for that. Read on to learn a little more about why our country is a beloved celebrity getaway and how you can vacation like the celebrities do.
Let’s start with a fun list. These are just a select few of the celebrities, musicians, and athletes who either: own large plots of land, own gorgeous luxury estates, or travel regularly in Costa Rica:
Again, those are just the ones who have been routinely spotted in Costa Rica or who own property in the Central American country.
What is it about this one relatively small country in Central America that has attracted so many celebrities from all over the world? Do you have all day? It’s almost impossible to pick just one reason why Costa Rica is a celebrity haven. But here are some of the most common reasons:
If you had all the money, fame, and power a person could want, you would probably make sure the country you decided to vacation in had a beach. Why wouldn’t you? But maybe that’s you not thinking big enough. Why settle for one coastline when you could pick the country that has two? Costa Rica’s two coastlines offer countless small private coves and escapes to hide out from the rest of the world.
That’s right — Costa Rica may not have as much coastline as an island by proportion, but it is uniquely blessed with incredible coasts along two oceans: the Atlantic and the Pacific. Once you get here, you can pick your beach flavor based on how you’re feeling that day. And you can’t make the wrong choice — every single beach in this country is more gorgeous than the last.
Celebrities are just like you and me, with a major difference: They have to think long and hard about privacy when they travel or just live their lives. Between paparazzi and adoring fans, it can be difficult for the rich and famous to eke out a little private time to travel.
Costa Rica solves that problem. It’s something of a hidden gem — a gem because of all it has to offer vacationers and hidden because so few people truly understand what an incredible place to travel this is. That means celebrities can travel to Costa Rica without the crowds and media frenzies of Europe and North America.
The cuisine available in Costa Rica rivals foodie enclaves on a global scale. The expat community in Costa Rica comes from all over the world and come with refined skills to compete in an extremely competitive market. Given the incredible variety of both flora and fauna that exists in this country, there is nary a fruit, vegetable or protein that isn’t sourced from less than 10 – 30 miles away. And if you’re a celebrity who has sampled the best of all kinds of cuisines in the world, Costa Rica will feel like your favorite exotic chair.
An emphasis on fresh, local ingredients, simplicity, tropical flavors lends Costa Rican food something you just can’t find elsewhere, and it keeps the celebrities coming back for seconds.
We have cloud forests, and almost nowhere else in the world can say that. We have unbelievable beaches, active volcanoes, rainforest, 600-foot waterfalls, and mountains. You just can’t compete with the natural beauty of this country.
Then, of course, you add in the vibrant and colorful wildlife, and you have a perfect formula for attracting celebrities from all over the world.
There’s a lot to love in Costa Rica, and it’s not just for celebrities. We’re thrilled to welcome people from all parts of the world and walks of life. A country like this is meant to be enjoyed, and you don’t have to be rich and famous to enjoy Costa Rica.
