Vacations in Costa Rica, Central America’s peaceful oasis
The name Costa Rica describes the country well: rich coast. Hopping on one of the many flights to this exotic destination means vacationing in a paradise of active volcanoes, sandy beaches, tropical rainforests and airy cloud forests; as well as among the toucans, howler monkeys and red-eyed tree frogs.
San José and Liberia are two cities with a variety of cultural activities. In San José—the capital—the museums display the local culture. In Liberia—a city of all-white buildings—tourists sip a jugo de caña as they stroll through the parks.
Beaches and surfing
Costa Rica’s beaches are numerous and diverse—perfect for vacations. Playa Hermosa is tranquil, Playa del Coco is very lively and Playa Tamarindo is a surfer’s paradise. Puerto Viejo and Isla Tortuga are also well-known destinations for lovers of big waves.
Tropical forests and ecotourism
A visit to Costa Rica’s innumerable tropical forests is a must. An excursion to Monte Verde allows tourists to discover nature from the vantage point of suspension bridges.
Tourism showcases Costa Rica’s numerous volcanoes, notably Poás, Irazú, Rincón de la Vieja, as well as the majestic Arenal and its hot springs.
Costa Rica’s surfing villages are usually those with the most animated nightlife. Tourists looking to party aren’t disappointed in Tamarindo, Puerto Viejo, Jaco or even in San José.
