Heading South for the Winter

It’s that time of year again for those living in the Northern part of the United States and Canada, the cold weather has arrived and it’s already time for many of them to make vacation plans and head south. More and more retirees are now classified as snow birds, leaving their homes for the winter and spending that time in countries with a tropical climate like Costa Rica where there is plenty of sunshine and more importantly warm weather. Costa Rica’s summer coincides perfectly for these snowbirds, as Costa Rica’s summer runs between December through April. World Headquarters reports the average temperature for most of Costa Rica falls between 71-81 degrees, a welcome change for someone living up North experiencing freezing temperatures on a daily basis for 3-4 months. The coastal areas of Costa Rica even tend to be a bit warmer, while the ocean waters are ideal, feeling like tub water, ranging between 75-85 degrees. In fact the warm waters is one reason why surfers are some of Costa Rica’s biggest fans. Those lucky enough might already have a second home in Costa Rica which makes their annual retreat an easier decision, but even those who don’t own a second home are migrating south looking for 1-3 month escapes of the bitter cold. With so many outdoor activities to choose from like world class sports fishing, surfing, mountain biking, hiking, and yoga retreats, Costa Rica remains a favorite to those seeking a more active and adventurous destination and an opportunity to trade in their snow boots for flip flops.
