I'd like to travel more. What do people do in foreign countries other than sightsee and eat? I don't really care about history but I do care about culture

EDIT: This was phrased super poorly. I should have asked, how do people decide which sights they do see? How do people ensure they're having an authentic experience that isn't just the beaten path that every other tourist takes?

How does a person communicate with the locals if they don't speak the same language? Where do you go for hot tips on things like beautiful beaches and hikes without many people around? Where do you find out the restaurants that are representative of something a local would love, rather than just the expensive (albeit probably great) restaurants that survive purely on tourist dollars?

I guess what I'm asking is, how do I go to another country and have an authentic experience, and not just be treated like a customer at Disneyland, where I'm routed into specific engineered experiences for customers?

Well In Costa Rica its all about sightseeing and eating. Culture is relaxed and proud.

For Example my trip ended up like this
  • Pool Life at Hotels - 3 different hotels in 3 different cities.
  • Beaches - water was super warm
  • Hiking in the rainforest
  • Visiting Waterfalls
  • Driving cross country through many different terrains
  • Ziplining
  • Learned how to make chocolate
  • Rafting through a river
  • Horseback riding
  • Hiking up a volcano
But i mean you train of thought is no sightseeing. Probably the dumbest thing ive ever heard.

Sorry I probably phrased that poorly. I love to eat, and I love to hike and see natural beauty, I guess I just assumed sightseeing meant just like.. museums and manmade landmarks like the statue of liberty/Eiffel tower etc. I don't want to just do the cliche things I imagine every tourist does.

Your comment was very helpful, ty.

I flew into San Jose, drove directly to La Fortuna south of the Arenal volcano. It dominates the landscape. I spent a few days around there, then drove to Tamarindo and stayed at a hotel on the beach run by locals. The beaches were empty and it was just amazing down there.

I understand what you meant, I didn't do any museums or stuff like that. Look for sopas down there, family run restaurants w/ authentic food. Theres tons to do near La Fortuna if you want to explore, relax over by Tamarindo. Enjoy your trip!

I dont usually do anything like that when I visit places, thats usually for within US.

Are there museums and stuff, yea absolutely but its not really crucial.

I planned my Costa Rica Trip through a company and they made sure everything was taken care of for me, they didnt even charge me they get paid on the backend. I double checked all the prices and they were giving me the best price I could find.

Picked up at the airport, driven to first hotel, took 10 person plane from city to city. All hotels had my info ready and everything, pretty cool. They suggested activities in each city too.

Its pricier having it fully organized but it was worth it IMO.

My advice for you based on your questions is :

Stay at home and watch tv, you are not curious enough and willing to do your own research for independent world travel.

No problem, was not expecting one.

By the way I was not trying to be mean, but you either have desire to travel and experience culture change ( which does include history) or you don't have desire ! Asking others the question you ask showed which of these you belong to.

I have ridden my MC to every country in Central America and to most all country's in South America (4 month trip) plus did 4 months in Europe.

JUST DO IT, you might really enjoy it !

Their screenname says it all. There are so many travel resource websites out there, and yet countless lazy spoon fed babies here on SD need to be told what to do/buy.
