As chilly winter weather freezes the north heading into Christmas, you are not alone if you are dreaming about a winter sun holiday in a warm climate.
After months of having only a gray sky out your window, there’s only one thing to do: fly away somewhere hot and sunny with beautiful beaches and smiling, happy people. Beat the winter blues by escaping to the best beaches in Costa Rica.
In Central America, Costa Rica is one of the best winter sun destinations to escape the cold weather of North America and Europe during these next few months. Say goodbye to freezing temperatures and dark days in the land of endless summer in Costa Rica, where warm sunshine, blue skies, balmy breezes, surf and soft sand make the perfect winter sun vacation.
There are dozens of affordable daily flights to Costa Rica from the USA, Canada and Europe, making it an easy vacation destination.
Jacó Beach on Costa Rica’s Central Pacific Coast is a popular spot in winter. Known for its wide sandy shoreline and brilliant blue ocean, Jacó offers great surf, colorful sunsets, nearby national parks, and excellent tourism services. Add in jungle mountain backdrops and a relaxed, low-key beach party atmosphere, and you’ll be guaranteed to forget what sub-zero temperatures feel like.
Only 75 minutes from the San Jose international airport, Jacó is the most developed beach town on the Central Pacific Coast. And yet, amid the restaurants, hotels, shops, services and conveniences, it is still a small surf town. At 2.5 miles (4 km) long, bordering a wide curving bay, Jacó Beach is easy to walk or bike from one end to the other in about 30 minutes.
Hotel Amapola in Jacó Beach is minutes from the sand on the main road through town. Airy rooms and suites have terraces or balconies, and there is free Wi-Fi, parking, and breakfast included in all reservations. There’s also an outdoor pool, a casino, and a spa.
Don’t let the winter blues get you down. Flee the cold on a Costa Rica winter sun vacation.
