One of the biggest benefits of traveling, at least to Costa Rica tour, is the latter: You’ll enjoy spending time outdoors. You will surf in the sea and walk in the rainforest. You will raft down river rapids and swim in the Pacific. Spend sunsets on a sailboat and evenings barbecuing by the pool overlooking the ocean.
And all those things – well, you’ll love them as much as your body. Because being outdoors, especially while traveling, has been found to really, really keep you healthier, even in retirement. In fact, a study found that regular travel can significantly affect your overall health. For example, women who travel twice a year (or more) had a statistically significantly lower risk of heart attack, while men who vacationed at least once a year had a reduced risk of death and especially of heart attack.
So go ahead – travel. Do it for your health!
You try new things
Travel has a funny way of pushing people out of their comfort zones. It forces everyone to try new things and meet new people. And this forced stretching—this nudge at the borders of our known world—can be very good for their mental and emotional health.
It’s not always as scary as it sounds. Doing something new can be as exciting as surfing for the first time or seeing your first whale in the wild. It could be trying new restaurants or splurging on something special. It could be your first visit to a tropical dry forest or an unforgettable hike to a rainforest waterfall. The key is in your attitude: are you willing to try something new? Because, if you do, you might just discover a new favorite food, meet a new friend, or experience something you only imagined in your dreams.
And that, my friends, can do wonders for your joy, your sense of adventure, and even your health.

Did you know that traveling has been proven to reduce your stress? Yes, numerous studies have shown that reducing stress is one of the many benefits of travel: In one study, just three days of vacation led travelers to feel less anxious, improve their moods, and be more rested.
Perhaps more importantly, these benefits last long after you return home. So if you want to reduce stress, start planning your next Costa Rica tour!
Expand your horizons
Exposure to new places, new cultures and new people is the fastest way to grow. Travel has a way of shifting your perspective and transforming your paradigm—building a better, healthier worldview.
There is something about Costa Rica tour branching out, about exposing to many new things, that makes people healthier and more balanced. It is about more than the haves and have-nots, more than the differences between where you come from and where you are visiting; it’s an expansion of your mind and your experience and your perspective, and it can be life-changing. It can also be one of the most tangible, yet intangible benefits of travel. And this is definitely something everyone should experience.
