Pura Vida House: Your Destination Pickleball Camp in Costa Rica


As pickleball gains popularity, the industry evolves. No longer just seen as a game to play at the park or club, people are enjoying pickleball so much that they are planning entire all-inclusive pickleball vacations around the sport. Why? The reasons are simple.

Pickleball is most popular with people over 50 and for good reason. It is not as physically demanding as tennis making it pretty easy on the joints. Pickleball is also a fun and healthy competitive sport that is great for couples with free time on their hands. And what is one thing that older couples have besides more time than those still raising young children? Disposable income. That’s one of the main reasons all-inclusive pickleball vacations have become so popular – they fit the desires of the demographic! Pickleball vacations provide a fun and social activity in the most desirable international locations that serve to scratch both the travel bug and help you stay in shape. 

All-inclusive Pickleball Vacations for Adults

All-inclusive pickleball vacations have become all the rage, whether it’s a trip with other couples, a birthday or anniversary celebration, or just for fun. We all know how challenging it can be to plan a group trip, what with trying to plan around everyone’s schedules and other requirements. That’s why all-inclusive pickleball vacations have become so popular. This way you can relax knowing everything will be taken care of for you and your group and all you have to do is show up and enjoy!

Destination Pickleball Camps in Costa Rica 

Why should you choose Costa Rica as your all-inclusive pickleball destination? The most obvious reason is that Costa Rica is beautiful. But so is any tropical location where you can see the beach, the rainforest, and a volcano all in one day. One difference between Costa Rica and many other tropical locations is safety. Costa Rica is considered the safest country in Latin America according to the 2022 Global Peace Index, ranking 35th out of 163 countries. 

Safety aside, Costa Rica has uncrowded beaches, environmental sustainability (one-quarter of the country is protected land), abundant nature, friendly locals (Ticos), and the Pura Vida attitude that is quintessentially Costa Rican.

As part of your pickleball package, we plan three local cultural experiences for you and your guests. You also receive our 24/7 concierge services to hook you and your group up with whatever other activities and tours you want to do during your stay.
