Members of the Jewish and Samaritan communities hold Passover as the most important and most popular among all the Jewish holidays. This is due to what the festival symbolizes – God’s sparing of the Jews when He killed the first born of Egypt.
The Jewish faithful community celebrates Passover by strictly observing their traditional religious traditions. The observance of Passover even starts thirty days before the holiday. The devotees begin to elucidate every law related to Passover during this period. Passover is celebrated in Israel for seven days. The rest of the world, however, celebrates it for eight.
Year after year, thousands of Jews make their way to the kosher resorts located in the different parts of the globe to spend their Passover vacations. There are plenty of Passover tours that they can join. These tours are actually the most sought for, which validates even more the importance of this particular Jewish holiday to the community.
Generally, Passover tours have the duration of ten days. That means you get more than a week of extraordinary travel experiences and religious observance away from the hustle and bustle of the environment that you are used to everyday. Kosher resorts strictly observe the religious practices every Jew must fulfill and remain completely kosher for the duration of the occasion. Seders are served for the first two nights as a communal feast where you get the chance to meet all the other participants of the tour in the kosher resort’s dining hall. You, of course, have the option to have private Seders if you wish, which are to be arranged with the resort’s personnel.
The meals served during Seders and your entire stay at the resort are guaranteed to have passed glatt kosher standards. The mashgichim strictly supervise the preparation of every dish in the menu. A thorough inspection is made on the meat and all the other ingredients used to prepare the meals. This ensures that you are to consume nothing but the most delicious Pesach programs of the highest standards. In addition, kosher resorts have onsite synagogues to allow Jews to observe their daily Minyanim.
Passover vacations bring you to the most beautiful places you would ever dream of visiting. These places are among the top vacation destinations in the world. The whole idea of Passover tours is to bring you close to nature in order to experience the tranquility and serenity of the world during the holiday. Of the ten days of your Passover vacation, three days are allotted for programs or excursions during the Chol Hamoed. These excursions, of course, allow you to explore the pristine beauty of the destination you have chosen for your Passover holiday vacation. The tours are strictly supervised by professional, experienced, knowledgeable and naturalist tour guides.
Among all the Passover tours offered, Costa Rica is emerging to be the most sought for destination. Costa Rica is not Central America’s special jewel for nothing. The kosher resort in Costa Rica offers everything that a kosher resort would during Passover and more! Because of today’s advancement in technology, the world is now running low on places where nature is vast and undisturbed. Costa Rica, however, remains to be one of those very few places. Its abundance in tropical greens, wildlife running free and bodies of water makes it perfect for a nature-ambient Passover vacation. The excursions all around the beautiful Costa Rica alone are something you would choose to go. They allow you to trek marvelous volcanoes and breathtaking rain and cloud forests, dip and relax in hot springs, see wild animals roaming around their natural habitat undisturbed, and join water activities. Other activities you can do during the three adventurous days of your excursion are to join the canopy zip line tours, go hiking and horseback riding. You can also join snorkeling tours and river cruises, if that pleases you. Private beach getaways and volcano hot springs experiences, however, are two of the most popular choice of activity.
