  • Wind farms
  • Wildlife conservancy projects
  • Sustainable architecture
  • Green energy programs
  • Lines of credit for green businesses
  • Green schools and colleges

Costa Rica is an incredibly ecologically diverse nation with a sincere focus on global sustainability. It offers all the amenities of any first world nation and maintains a fast-growing economy. From romantic getaways at all-inclusives resorts in the protected rainforests to biodiverse nature excursions to family vacation packages, Costa Rica is a phenomenal place to both live and visit!

Costa Rican Weather

Costa Rica is known for being a great place to visit, with its wonderfully warm weather year-round. Temperatures usually sit around the 80’s Fahrenheit.

Costa Rica’s rainy season, or green season, takes place from May to November. However, rainy season is an excellent time to visit the country as there are often discounted prices for flights and many other things, and the scattered rain showers bring the lush rainforests into a vibrant and verdant state of beauty. Even though late July is part of the green season, it usually brings on what Costa Ricans call a “little summer” with more stable weather.

A Historical Overview of Costa Rica

Manuel Antonio Costa Rica

Costa Rica is located in Central America, just south of Nicaragua and northwest of Panama. Spanish for “Rich Coast,” Costa Rica is a country that is abundant in many ways - including their history. From the highland tribes that occupied the area thousands of years ago to Christopher Columbus’s crew that were dazzled by the beauty of the coast to the modern-day growing economy, Costa Rica’s historical past is a rich one.

Christopher Columbus was greeted by the local Carib Indians in September 1502 during his fourth and final voyage to the Western Hemisphere. It is said that the golden jewelry that the area’s inhabitants wore in their noses and ears inspired Columbus to name the country Costa Rica, or rich coast. Later, when conquistador González Dávila colonized the nation for Spain in 1522, it is purported that the natives were in possession of vast amounts of gold and other precious metals.

A Modern Costa Rica

Costa Rica Map

Today, Costa Rica is a modern, constitutional democracy with a significant economy and all the amenities of a first world nation. Historically, Costa Rica has seen a greater amount of peace and political stability than many other nations in Central America. The economy has, over time, transitioned from one based on cash crops like coffee and bananas to one more focused on tourism and non-traditional agriculture.

As a country, Costa Rica is a nation divided into 81 counties, or in Spanish, Cantons. These counties are spread across 7 larger provinces which make up the country as a whole, these provinces are:

  1. Alajuela
  2. Cartago
  3. Guanacaste
  4. Heredia
  5. Limón
  6. Puntarenas
  7. San José

Peace and Safety in Costa Rica

Army Abolition

An interesting fact about Costa Rica is that it has no military. The Costa Rican military was constitutionally abolished in 1948 at the conclusion of the country’s civil war. The lack of a military greatly contributes to Costa Rica’s image of peace and mediation. However, the country still maintains a well-armed police force for peacekeeping purposes.

Is Costa Rica a safe place to visit? Costa Rica is considered a decently safe country, ranking highest among all Latin American countries on the Global Peace Index. The large expat communities work alongside locals to keep areas safe and secure.

As always when traveling, tourists are advised to use common sense with their personal belongings and follow all notices and advisories to make sure you are swimming and adventuring in safe beaches and other locations.

?

How far is it from Jaco to Arenal / La Fortuna?

Arenal Volcano and La Fortuna are approximately 3.5-4 hours from Jaco.

?

Are there hot springs in the Jaco/Los Suenos area?

The short answer is ‘no.’ Hot springs are formed when rocks and other matter deep within the Earth’s surface become heated. These heated elements force water below the surface up, creating hot springs. In order for this phenomena to happen, there has to be a suitable heat source. In the case of hot springs in Costa Rica, more often than not, that heat source is volcanic activity. Since there are no active volcanoes in or around the Jaco / Los Suenos area, we do not have hot springs available here. The closest volcanic source for hot springs is Arenal Volcano in La Fortuna, which is approximately 3.5-4 hours from Jaco.

?

How far is Jaco Beach/ Adventure Tours’ Costa Rica Central Office from the International Airport (SJO)?

The trip from Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose is a beautiful 1 1/2 hour drive that makes us the closest beach resort community from the International Airport.
