Nicuesa Lodge welcomes guests for Christmas with fun activities
Christmas holidays are nearly here! How fun it will be to spend Christmas and New Year’s on an amazing tropical beach alongside the incredible Costa Rica rainforest. Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge welcomes guests who will be spending their Christmas vacation in Costa Rica with us. Our staff is looking forward to celebrating holiday festivities with you and we have lots of fun activities lined up. Our chef and kitchen personnel are planning special dinners on Dec. 24 for Christmas Eve and Dec. 31 for New Year’s Eve. The gala feasts will include roast pork, grilled whole fresh fish caught by Nicuesa staff, and other traditional Costa Rican foods including fresh vegetables, rice, beans, plantains, salads and fresh fruit. Kids’ menu items include fresh fish fingers, fresh cassava chips, veggies and ice cream. Nicuesa Lodge meals are served family-style all together in our magnificent two-story tree house-style main lodge building. The open-air dining area allows unobstructed views of the tree canopy (great for wildlife spotting), the forest, beach and ocean, and at night, a huge star-filled sky.   In Costa Rica, tamales are an essential Christmas food. Tamales in Costa Rica are made from corn meal and are filled with rice, potatoes, vegetables, garlic and onions, and usually shredded pork, and then wrapped in banana or plantain leaves and boiled. Guests can join in the cultural tradition to learn how to make their own tamales. Kids of all ages will have fun painting coconuts and decorating Christmas boxes to be hopefully filled by Santa on Christmas Eve. Natural adventures are an essential part of the Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge experience, so we will have a kayaking competition for children and adults on Dec. 24 in the calm bay in front of Nicuesa’s beach. Playa Nicuesa Sustainability Coordinator, Natalia Solis, will lead an end-of-year tribute to the Earth on Dec. 30 with a tree planting ceremony, where guests can give the sustainable gift of a new tree to the world. The trees, all native to Costa Rica, were donated by the Costa Rican Tourism Board (ICT).   On Dec. 31, Nicuesa staff will engage in the last beach cleanup of the year, and invite guests to join in their eco-conscious effort. People come to visit Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge in Costa Rica for its pristine tropical beach and beautiful rainforest. Efforts to keep the beach unspoiled were recognized earlier this year when Playa Nicuesa received the important Ecological Blue Flag Award for having one of Costa Rica’s cleanest beaches.
