There’s No Shortage of Sunshine
As a quick glance will demonstrate, Costa Rica has wonderful weather and great beaches. Costa Rica has two distinct seasons: the high season and the green season. The green season is also known as the rainy season, whereas the high season is much dryer. The heat doesn’t vary greatly, but you can expect the highest temperatures between February and May, although the average highs reach around 27 degrees throughout the year. Additionally, with Costa Rica being a tropical country, you can take advantage of twelve bountiful hours of gorgeous sunshine per day… every day. What’s not to like?
Make Friends with Locals
Costa Rica is known for its friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The locals enjoy welcoming new people into their communities and there will be plenty of chances to bond with them. Sometimes even the smallest familiarities with the local coffee shop staff or people working at the markets and stores can make a new destination feel more like home. You can easily build this sense of community if you teach in Costa Rica.
Outside of work, Costa Rica offers a relaxed lifestyle far removed from the hustle and bustle of an American city. In Costa Rica, people take their time and enjoy the moment. If you want to live a stress-free life, this is a perfect place to do it.
Learn Spanish Whilst Teaching English
The native language in Costa Rica is Spanish. Living in a country that uses a different language gives you the opportunity to soak up new vocabulary like a sponge. Luckily, Spanish isn’t necessary to be able to get around, but you will probably find yourself learning quickly. If you want to become more fluent, there are plenty of tutors for you to find. Learning a new language is both great for making new friends and feeling more settled, but also looks great on resumes and study applications.
Never Be Bored Again!
Costa Rica is full of bars, restaurants and activity centers, allowing you to make the most of your leisure time. Locals like to listen to and play music and there is a big live music scene. There are also many chances to learn new sports such as gymnastics and water sports. The national sport is soccer, so you may find yourself bonding with the locals over cheering on their home team in the many stadiums across the country.
