Food and Culture of Costa Rica

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 is 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.

Main Attractions and Tourist Regions in Costa Rica

Keen surfers will immediately fall in love with Costa Rica. Pavones, a relatively tranquil and relaxed beach-town, is home to purportedly the longest left-hand beach break in the world.

Other incredible beach towns include Santa Teresa. More established and now thriving with tourism, this luxury beach spot parades pristine waters and forest hugging beaches. Montezuma adds another charming beach break to the list. An infectious spot that will force you to stay just another day.

Brimming with National Parks, Costa Rica works hard on preserving its natural beauty and with innovative sustainable tourism programs, implemented by all of our Costa Rica travel agencies, it is no wonder it never loses its charm. A few unmissable parks that showcase these delights are Parque Nacional Manuel Antonio, a park that condenses Costa Rican wildlife into one area.

Parque Nacional Volcan Arenal is popular with geologists and volcano enthusiasts, a park with picturesque trails and containing a volcano that was constantly erupting until 2010. Any day now something could happen.

In fact there are many black beaches, often described as the perfect “black holes”, that intrigue tourists on their Costa Rica tours. These, like that of Playa Samara, add a unique charm and a contrast to the picture perfect golden sand.

On your wildlife tours you will not be short of spectacular animals to encounter. With over 900 species of bird, some of the worlds rarest frogs, leather-back turtles and of course an abundance of diverse forest monkeys, tours to Costa Rica are undeniably perfect for those wildlife lovers.

These forests also offer a splendid array of adventure activities to try out. Canopy walks throughout the forests and National Parks are a great way of seeing tree animals, in particular those cheeky monkeys.

Get more of an adrenaline rush by using the Tarzan swing to survey the forest, or additionally try canyoning down some of the most attractive yet daunting cliff faces. White-water rafting tours also feature highly on adventure seekers lists.

James Peters, March 2017

Alejandro was very receptive to our needs for our itinerary. When we rejected an idea and told him what we were interested In he immediately changed his suggestions and found something we would be interested in.
Every hotel was wonderful.
When we returned and had a complaint, which is not the correct word, he followed up and made it correct for us. I would recommend Alejandro as a person to, set up your tour.

This trip was everything we expected and more. Lars did a great job of understanding what we wanted as far as attractions and schedule. All tours were first class as were the hotels he chose for us.

Lou Benders, February 2017

Everything was arranged really well! Even when I wasn't too happy with a hotel, they arranged another one within an hour!

The only thing I'd suggest is to give more regular updates or send little movies before the trip, so that the traveler knows that all is well.

In the end, however, the trip was absolutely fabulous and well worth the money. Costa Rica is an amazing destination and I was accommodated really well!

We loved Costa Rica. Lars was fantastic. Very responsive and quick to get back on questions. All of the hotels and excursions he booked for us met or exceeded our expectations.

Meredith Balfe, January 2017

As we were travelling to an area of the world where we knew nothing, Alejandro took all the problems out of the organisation. He explained the good areas to visit, picked excellent hotels for our budget and activities and was always available when I could not read something properly or needed extra information. His patience was endless. When we had some last minute changes Alejandro was not phased and sorted everything out with no fuss. He was professional, diligent and efficient. We could not have asked for better service.
