Costa Rica – Dental Tourism

Costa Rica Dental Tourism: Your Time in Paradise


Costa Rica dental tourism is tourism in the real sense: while you get your teeth repaired or Dental Implants made, you’ll be in one of the world’s most sought-after natural environments.

Most dental procedures – short of something requiring a general anesthetic – will allow you to take some time to enjoy your surroundings.

And in Costa Rica, you will enjoy them!

Here’s why…

Natural parks and protected areas…

With between 161 and 186 protected areas – it depends on what you count – lovers of nature and wildlife will be more than spoiled. The country protects proportionately more of its natural habitat than any other country on earth. Each park is different, and you can choose from a range of environments, from cloud forests to pristine beaches, with all the wildlife in-between. If you love nature, what better way to wait for that dental implant than by discovering these natural wonders?

Ecotourism at its best…

Not only are lush protected areas at your doorstep throughout the country but so is the wildlife. There are very few places like it: the country has half a million species (more than half of which are insects), or 4% of the planet’s total. There are plenty of unusual animals for those fascinated by nature: strangely colored frogs, giant (and endangered) sea turtles, irresistible monkey species, and unmatched bird life for you bird watchers out there. Dental tourism in Costa Rica: at one with the wildlife.

Beach bunny, surfer dude or just plain lazing around…

Costa Rica dental tourism can mean something as simple as lying on warm white sand. The country has not one but two entire coastlines. One is on the Pacific Ocean, with world-class surfing and miles and miles of delectable beaches. On the other coast is the Caribbean, with its laid-back feel and warm, placid waters. If sand and sun are what you love, a week on the beach might make it all feel worthwhile.

But if you’d rather be IN the water…

You can while away a few days or a week of your dental vacation in Costa Rica by snorkeling or diving in the Pacific, the best coast for spotting the greatest variety of fish, from giant manta rays to reef sharks and sea turtles. If swimming with these amazing creatures has long been a dream of yours, your best bet is to plan your Costa Rica dental tourism adventure during the dryest months, around February, March or April.

Water, water and more water

If riding the rivers and watching the foam spray all around is your idea of fun, your Costa Rica dental tourism trip will be one in a lifetime. With more rivers per square mile than most anyplace on earth, you won’t be lacking adventure. White-water rafting, canoeing, kayaking, floating, all in rapids ranging from calt to Class IV+, something for every level.

Catching the big one

Your Costa Rica dental tourism trip could mean catching a fish you’d never even dreamed of: with more than 60 world records to its name, sport fishing on both Pacific and Caribbean coasts is an unforgettable way to spend a few days waiting for your dental lab work to be finished.

Golfing in paradise…

If the names George Fazio, Ron Garl, Robert Trent Jones II, Tracy May, Arnold Palmer, Ted Robinson and Mike Young mean something to you, you may know that each of them has designed a golf course in Costa Rica. From Garra de Leon, considered Central America’s most luxurious resort to the volcano-ringed Valle del Sol, this is a country filled with courses designed by golfers, for golfers.

Or maybe you’re just a city slicker…

The capital San Jose may not be the largest city around, at 350,000, it’s a comfortable size and has plenty of attractions for the city lover including some unusual museums and plenty of culture. To best enjoy it, why not sign up for a Spanish class or two while you enjoy your Costa Rica dental tourism stay?
