Why Costa Rica Should Be Your Next Girls Trip

There is nothing better than a good ole fashion girls’ trip, and Costa Rica is the perfect destination. From lush tropical jungles to beautiful beaches, the country is beautiful and has something to offer for everyone.

What to do  

Gather your girls and pick your adventure. Costa Rica has ziplining, surfing, canyoning, spas, snorkeling, white water rafting, horseback riding, yoga – you name it! And these activities take place all over the country, so it doesn’t matter what part you decide to visit.

Where to go

Rent a beach house in Manuel Antonio or a jungle escape in Arenal and enjoy a couple of days of relaxation and solitude with you best gal pals. Hire a car and go on a self-guided tour of the country.  Check out the capital city of San Jose, the rainforest in Monteverde or the Caribbean in Puerto Viejo. The driving in Costa Rica is a bit different compared to what we are used to in the States, so be prepared for a wild adventure.

The People

I went to Costa Rica with two of my gal pals and we had the time of our lives! We enjoyed all the fun activities and the beautiful scenery, but one of our favorite parts about Costa Rica was the people. Everyone was so friendly! Locals, fellow travelers, expats, you name it. We didn’t experience much of a language barrier problem as most of the people you will interact with speak English.


Compared to their neighboring countries, Costa Rica isn’t considered cheap, but it’s still cheaper than many of the places in America. You can take the budget route and stay in backpacking hostels, or splurge a little and rent a house or stay in a nice resort. Things like food and drink won’t break the bank nor will the activities. Just don’t do what I did and forget about your autopay when setting a budget!

Costa Rica is the perfect destination for your next girlfriend getaway! Enjoy the warm weather, delicious food and beautiful people. Trust me, it will be a trip you and your gals talk about for years, I know me and my girls still do! Where is your favorite girlfriend getaway destination? Tell me in the comments below.

Until next time…
