Traveling solo in Costa Rica is super exciting. You feel free, with everything ahead of you to explore and enjoy. It’s also a great opportunity to meet people, make new friends and get epic pictures!
Costa Rica has it all: the best beaches, exuberant vegetation, exotic animals, volcanoes, rainforests, waterfalls… Everything looks like the perfect venue for an unforgettable pic!
You might think that a selfie stick or even the best tripod for solo travelers is enough to have wonderful photos of your trip. Sure, you can get a few nice selfies to send to your family and friends, but nothing beats a good session with a professional photographer when it comes to keeping your Costa Rica memories forever.
Here we give you five reasons why you should consider hiring a photographer:
1- The equipment: photographers have professional cameras, lights, reflective screens, and other elements that make a big difference.
2- The technique: professional photographers study and practice for quite a few years to get the perfect shot.
3- The experience: nothing better than a photographer that is able to get a natural pose even from the shyest person. Or that captures a spontaneous moment like a pro. The experience here is key!
4- The secret places: a good local photographer will take you to secret hidden places for your photo session. You’ll get the most original pictures and discover little treasures out of the tourist path!
5- The fun: standing alone in front of a tripod waiting for the flash doesn’t compare to chatting and having some good laughs with your photographer!
Costa Rica has some very special venues for solo pictures. We suggest the three below and we keep some other secret ones to ourselves, to share them with you in person:
- Playa Langosta: this wide beach is one of the favorites for surfers. With clear sand and open skies, it is a very quiet place surrounded by mangroves, home to beautiful exotic birds, sea turtles, and wonderful sunsets!
- Llanos de Cortez waterfall: this imposing cascade is a natural paradise, home to a wide variety of butterflies and nature. The crystal water curtain falls into a fresh and clear pond. We bet you can already imagine your solo picture here!
- El Mangroove Hotel: this luxurious beach resort is the perfect venue for some fancy yet nature-filled solo photos.
