NEW! How you can make your stay more authentic, sustainable and memorable

These tips provide the insider’s knowledge on how travelers can engage with local culture, make their vacations more memorable, promote sustainability in the region, and enhance their overall holiday experience.

  • One of the best ways to explore Costa Rica is via tours. Sparkling Voyages can arrange all types of tours provided by a local supplier who supports sustainable practices and participates in Certification in Sustainable Tourism (CST) program. Regardless of the region of the country where travelers are staying, all types of custom-made local tours can be arranged, from Volcano adventures to zip lining and horseback riding. Sparkling Voyages can also arrange itineraries involving staying at small local lodges,  which would have a great positive impact on local communities while travelers will benefit from a more authentic experience.
  • If traveling during the week of October 12, make sure to attend the Limon Carnival, which commemorates Cultures Day. This event is very popular amongst visitors, and generates much local and national excitement and anticipation. A Carnival Queen is chosen in advance, and in the afternoons costumed groups may be met rehearsing in the barrios. Other happenings include a parade of costumed groups and floats, marching bands, masquerades, national and international concert groups and a traditional dragon dance. The most anticipated event of the year, the carnival enjoys the involvement of the entire community of Limón. The floats, bands and costumed groups, with all the music and color that characterize this event, are accompanied by other attractions such as amusement park rides, fireworks and handicrafts and carnival souvenirs for sale.
