by Dillon Patterson Article Publisher

In the last few years, Costa Rica has turned out to be an international tourist hub. It looks that everyone has a special liking for this place, and it is not difficult to see why. The nation has a lot to offer as far as biodiversity, national parks, beautiful beaches, wonderful culture, and delicious foods are concerned. While you should not avoid the tourist hotspots like Monteverde, Arenal, Gold Coast and Manuel Antonio, there're some fabulous activities for those planning to take anoff-the-beaten-path trip. Listed below are a few things to do in Costa Rica that are simply off-the-beaten-path and unique in themselves.

Take a picturesque drive through the Central Valley:

Once you left behind the bustling urban areas of the Central Valley, it's a really charming & picturesque site. There're picturesque small towns that provide a real insight into thetraditional lifestyle of the Costa Rican, extroverted sights of the mountains & close by volcanoes, and scrumptiously cool climate. There're also great little markets, restaurants, churches, farms, and places to purchase handcrafted artisan-made goods.

Go full immersion:

The best way to learn Spanish & experience a new culture is to spend time with a host family and Costa Rica is an excellent place to do this. There're many reputed organizations that assist to set up outsiders with a local Costa Rican family. Quite often, part of your tour involves formal Spanish lessons & cultural classes like learning to cook typical Costa Rican foods. Spending time with a local family is an excellent chance to learn & practice Spanish and experience the beautiful life & culture of Costa Rica.

Volunteer with wild animals:

There're several sanctuaries & rescue centres placed throughout Costa Rica looking for big-hearted, adventurous and animal lovers to come & give a helping hand. There won't be a better way to spend some quality time in the land of Costa than to be enclosed by beautiful nature and assisting sick, injured, abandoned or recuperating animals. There're chances to take care of baby sloths of the Sloth Sanctuary, pamper homeless dogs in the Territorio de Zaguates and work with many native species such as birds, monkeys, anteaters and Wildcats at the Jaguar Rescue Centre.

Shop like local:

Most towns in Costa Rica have some kind of weekly farmers markets which are an excellent place to explore the incredible range of vegetables and fruits that are cultivated in Costa Rica. It's expected that you'll encounter a variety of new fruits & vegetables as well. The Majority of the locals purchase their poultry, produce, beans, seafood, and dairy stuff from the farmer's market, as it is the most cost-effective way to shop. Some markets are superior to others, but it's an excellent way to explore local life & be a part of the scene. It is also an ideal place to practice your Spanish.

There are no shortages of things to do in Costa Rica but it's possible only when you know where to go and when to go. This is where a reputed private Costa Rica tour agency can guide you through.
