As pickleball gains popularity, the industry has evolved. No longer seen as just 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? It’s more like why not?

Pickleball is most popular with the over-50 crowd and for good reason. It is not as physically demanding as tennis and is relatively easy on the joints. It is also a fun and healthy competitive sport that is great for couples with some 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 why all-inclusive pickleball vacations have become so popular. They fit the desires of the demographic! They provide a fun and social activity in desirable international locations that help 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 family trip with older children, a birthday or anniversary celebration, or just for fun. But we all know that planning a group trip can be difficult enough as it is just 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. All you have to do is show up!

Destination Pickleball Camps in Costa Rica

Why should you choose Costa Rica as your all-inclusive pickleball destination? First and foremost, 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 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 features uncrowded beaches, abundant nature, environmental sustainability (one-quarter of the country is protected land), friendly locals (Ticos), and the Pura Vida attitude that is quintessentially Costa Rican.
