Christmas is a time for families, food, and festivities, but it is also a time of relaxation and vacation. More and more, people are seeking an escape from the cold and looking to experience something totally different at this special time of the year.

Christmas Costa Rica vacation packages have grown exponentially in popularity in recent years. The ease of access and the high quality of accommodations coupled with the chance to spend these special days in bikinis and board shorts on the beach has seen a surge in people booking Costa Rica Christmas travel.

But with the desirability also comes the issue of availability. Christmas falls in the first few weeks of the Costa Rican dry season. The country is still rich and green but you are guaranteed sunshine every day and often all day. This makes it twice as nice and twice as attractive to visitors from all over the world.

How do you get the tropical Christmas you have always wanted?

It pays if you can be a little flexible with your travel dates. If you want to be in Costa Rica on the 25th then it is recommended that you plan for a slightly longer vacation (9 days instead of 7) and get into the country a little early, beating the last minute rush.

Check with a local travel agency like Costa Rican Vacations. Agencies often have access to rooms and special deals that you just won’t find on the actual hotel’s website. Even for the most ardent of independent travelers, this time of year it’s almost always best to go through an agency. Not only will you usually find a better price, but agencies pre-book hotel nights for the Christmas period. You may call your dream hotel and they will tell you they are booked, but get in touch with us and we might just have that room already on hold and waiting for you.

You cannot book too early when it comes to your Christmas vacation package. If you are able to, then get in early! Leaving it to the last minute is likely to leave you disappointed, but still speak to an experienced travel consultant. They will be able to help tailor your vacation well ahead of time, leaving you to relax and look forward to it.

Also, it may be possible to arrange for special meals, tours, or activities that will help make your Christmas in Costa Rica all the more memorable. Just contact us and tell us what you want to do, and we will do our best to make it happen.
