From the soaring skylines of Monteverde to the unbelievable sunsets along the Gulf of Nicoya, it’s safe to say Costa Rica is the ideal destination for nature lovers. Just about every point on the island offers panoramic views of beauty, and once there you’ll find every direction leads to explorer’s bliss. Although costs with staying on the island are considerably more than other Caribbean locations, so too are the rewards for nature lovers. Costa Rica has everything an active vacationer could want, from volcanoes to rainforests, and with local architecture to see, and plenty of downtime at scenic resorts available, you can expect a perfect getaway.
Located in Central America, with Nicaragua to the north and Panama to the southeast, you’ll find a truly tropical paradise. There are two sides to the coin when it comes to the ocean, from the Pacific Coast to the West and the Caribbean Sea to the east. Once your feet touch the ground in person you’ll find a variety of sands, from black volcanic beaches to golden sandy shorelines. Just last year, for 2017, Costa Rica was named the world’s friendliest country, with locals happy to offer advice and cultural exploration to visitors. The country is devoted to its environment, promising to be completely eco-friendly and self-sustainable by becoming a carbon-neutral country by 2021.
Costa Rica is destined for adventure, and there is a near limitless amount of excursion opportunities available. In the many rainforests, you’ll encounter active wildlife and hanging bridges hikers can walk across. Guests love the opportunity to see both the wildlife on the ground, and high above them, from monkeys to tree frogs. Consider partaking in a canopy tour, the perfect way to explore the hillsides.
For guests looking to unwind, hit the full thermal experience at Tabacon natural hot springs. This is Costa Rica’s largest network of naturally flowing mineral springs, flanking the Arenal Volcano. The springs are heated underground by the volcano’s magma, claiming a truly natural resource that other springs cannot across the world. You’ll find several pools to relax in, each with their own local flora and various degrees of seclusion.
You’ll find every other type of excursion available in Costa Rica too, from ziplining to catamaran cruises.
