Costa Rica is a place worth seeing and doing. With its varied landscapes and diverse cultures, clients have much to experience when visiting this Central American country.
One thing everyone has in common, however, is the idea of “Pura Vida,” which means “pure life” or “simple living.”
Agents can now learn more about this concept by taking an online course at Pura Vida University. Here they will learn about all that Costa Rica has to offer and how to enjoy it in an environmentally friendly way, which is one of the key commitments of the destination.
One of the best things about Costa Rica is its size – visitors can discover a lot in a couple of weeks. And while it may be small in size, it is filled with incredible diversity, offering visitors a wide range of experiences.
From the Afro-Caribbean influence in the east to the traditional cowboy (sabanero) culture of the north to the bohemian atmosphere of the Pacific Coast, each of Costa Rica’s regions boasts a unique and fascinating culture.
This extends to its natural beauty, where the microclimate allows guests to enjoy many different landscapes. Visitors can combine a trip to Tortuguero on the Caribbean coast, to San Gerardo de Dota in the south and to Marino Balena National Park on the Pacific Ocean – the perfect combination of adventure, wildlife and beach recreation.
All the while, they’ll get to sample Costa Rica’s eclectic cuisine, which has been shaped by a multicultural population. From traditional rice and bean dishes like pinto to patacones (deep-fried plantains), there are dishes for every taste, which can be washed down with a refreshing drink of Churchill or aromatic coffee.
