Beach Soccer in Costa Rica
Have you ever tried playing soccer at the beach? If not, it’s one way to get immersed into culture. In Costa Rica, the locals (Ticos) are known to play soccer on a daily basis. Usually smaller in groups and the field goals are based on either small sticks plunged into the sand, trash cans, and rocks. Normally it’s separated by few feet distance. It’s a great way to get exercise and some sun exposure. The picture above was taken in Samara, Costa Rica. Students that learn Spanish in Samara have a great view of the beach from the campus. Just a few steps and you’ve transitioned from student environment to tourist (picture link).
Beach soccer is a great sport, it doesn't cost much to get active. For an alternative exercise activity, while in the country, try and pick up a few games with the locals.
