You can also lounge on the excellent beaches within the park and take in the amazing views. At Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, besides exploring the flora and fauna, try ziplining through the top of trees. This reserve also has the world’s largest number of orchid species. Home to the elusive jaguar and other wild cat species, the Corcovado National Park is also a great place to see birds such as red macaws, toucans, and quetzals. Tortuguero National Park too is a fabulous place to visit on Costa Rica holidays especially during turtle nesting season.
Hikes to areas near active volcanoes are an exciting aspect of trips to Costa Rica with the Arenal Volcano being the most prominent one. It is located inside the Arenal Volcano National Park in La Fortuna district. The park area offers hiking and ziplining activities. If you enjoy kayaking, head to Lake Arenal for a fun time on the waters. While in La Fortuna, you can also go rappelling down waterfalls! If it is white water rafting that gets you all excited, the Pacuare River is the place to go. As you navigate the rapids, you can also do some bird-spotting.
Beach Paradise in the Pacific and Caribbean Coast
If your idea of a perfect vacation is relaxing at the beach or enjoying water-related activities, travel to Costa Rica. Spend dreamy days on the superb beaches in the Guanacaste and Puntarenas provinces in the Pacific’s Nicoya Peninsula. Pristine waters, food, and fun are aplenty at Tamarindo beaches. Other popular beach destinations here include Santa Teresa and Nosara. Samara beach too is a great place to go as is the surfer’s paradise of Pavones. Explore the waters through surfing, scuba diving, snorkeling, and kayaking. There are delightful beaches on the Caribbean coast as well including the serene Punta Uva and the laidback Playa Cocles. Feel blissed out!
The dry season, which is also the high season runs from late November to late April, however, minus a few downpours, you can enjoy Costa Rica any time of the year.
For Whale watching the best time to go is July-Oct or Jan-March
For the Leatherback Turtle, the best time to go is March-July.
Rice, chicken, and beans feature in a lot of the traditional Costa Rican dishes, however, with two luxurious coastlines, the seafood on offer is a tremendous alternative to those cheap staple diets.
A lot of fruit is consumed on a daily basis, this being down to the freshness of them and the refreshment they bring.
Although it’s not the cuisine that draws in the tourists, the coffee and chocolate in Costa Rica are good enough to take me back there.
Sustainable tourism is one attribute that is key to understanding the philosophy of the Costa Rican culture. Responsible eco-tourism like not destroying the landscape with commercial hotels and instead building eco-friendly lodges is just one thing that protects the environment. Furthermore responsible care and interaction with the animals is fundamental practice in the rain-forest.
The importance of nature is never underestimated on Costa Rica vacations.
Graciela was EXCELLENT! So helpful and easy to work with. Would definitely recommend working with her!
Based on my travel destination and planned activities (wildlife photography), Graciela helped me organize a tour that that met my expectations. The trip went according to plan, and I am happy with the services offered by Graciela before and during the trip. As the trip was organized on short notice (about one month before departure), I think Graciela and her company did an excellent job proposing an itinerary and followup afterward.Read More Read More Less
Randall was extremely responsive to any of my questions. Additionally, he got me on a last-second shuttle to the airport during this Covid-19 crazy time. The places he selected for me to stay were perfect. I would highly recommend Randall.
This traveller just left a 5-star review.
She was really helpful. When we discovered that an activity which was scheduled for the Manuel Antonio Park on a Monday and that the park is actually closed on Mondays, she was really quick to reschedule so that we were able to visit the park on the Tuesday and provided a change of transportation to ensure we got to the next point in our itinerary in good time. I was so impressed that there was no argument or conflict, she simply took ownership of the error and corrected it and our vacation was basically unaffected. Thank you.
Also, I left my jacket in the car after we arrived at the airport, and she took the trouble to make sure I got it back at the end of our trip. I am so appreciative of the care she took of us when we needed it. We felt as though she was always there whenever we needed her. Thanks again.
