Every American who retires must at least visit one of 15 must-see destinations in the world, among which is Costa Rica.This was announced some time ago by the AARP, an independent American non-profit organization that serves the needs and interests of people over 50 years of age.
AARP asked its members – through the Travel Trends survey – about where they would like to go and who would be willing to go.67% of people were inclined to pack suitcases to embark on a trip to a different, attractive and exotic destination, both in the United States and in other nations.They even announced that they would love to make four trips a year.

This is what Travel + Leisure (publication specialized in tourism) says about our country based on information from AARP:
“Looking for ‘Puravida’? The motto, which means “Enjoy life and be happy,” is a favorite saying in this Central American country for good reason. A wide variety of environments, such as tropical forests, jungles, Pacific and Caribbean coasts, volcanoes and hot springs make it a fascinating place to visit.
“Wildlife lovers can see monkeys, sloths, pumas, whales, reptiles and sea turtles in their natural habitat. And after a day of hiking, diving, surfing, golf or exploring nature, you can relax on a pristine beach or in a lush rainforest.
“There are five-star hotels and luxurious resorts all over the country, so you can choose your favorite setting to ensure you find what ‘puravida’ means to you.“In Guanacaste, the W Costa Rica – ReservaConchal is surrounded by the sands of Conchal Beach. In the heart of the Costa Rican rainforest, Playa Cativo Lodge is a luxury beachfront property accessed exclusively by boat.
“Nayara Gardens, on the edge of Costa Rica’s Arenal Volcano National Park offers unobstructed views of the volcano.“Costa Rica has two international airports: the Daniel OduberQuirós in Liberia (LIR) and the Juan Santamaría in San José (SJO). Be sure to check the most convenient airport and ground transportation when booking your hotel.”
