costa rica vacationWhile many tourism hot spots around the world see their major upticks in visitors during the summer months, Costa Rica’s high season is around Christmas and New Year’s.


And the Costa Rican tourism industry is expecting it to be a very happy holiday season this year with both busy beaches and full hotels. According to the Tico Times, sector experts are predicting hotel and resort occupancy rates to hit a whopping 80 per cent this season.

That number compares to a lackluster 50-per-cent occupancy rate from last year’s high season.

The study surveyed 134 lodging establishments in the regions of Guanacaste, Puntarenas, the Central and South Pacific, the Caribbean, the northern region and the Central Valley.

And with eight out of every 10 rooms expecting to be booked, travellers hoping to head south for the winter for a Costa Rica vacation should plan ahead and confirm their bookings soon to avoid scrambling for last-minute accommodations.

costa rica vacationOne enthusiastic tourist from Germany decided recently to capture his trip to Costa Rica in a very unique (and modern) fashion: though hundreds of self portraits.


According to a recent article in the Tico Times, this traveller took the usual tourist photography to a new level. Dubbed “selfies” on social media, these photos portray artist and photographer Tim Panse in various forms during his 23-day journey from New York City to Costa Rica and back again. Whether he was in transit, snorkeling in Costa Rica’s blue waters, exploring beaches, zip lining through the country’s rainforest or taking a moment to relax with a cold cerveza, Panse didn’t fail to capture a single experience.

The trip resulted in 1,000 selfies, which he strung together into a video about his epic vacation. Viewers get glimpses of his idyllic Costa Rica vacation and all his various activities throughout the country.
