Costa Rica in some ways is the home of true ecotourism. You could spend an entire holiday just visiting the churches of Costa Rica, let alone travelling the rest of the country. There are incredible mountains, secluded beaches, beautiful architecture... this list goes on and on. Two weeks at a beach is a LOT of fun, but if that is all you do, you really miss the Real Costa Rica.
Any lovers of sand, sea and sun will be in literal heaven; Costa Rica offers endless stretches of golden sand baked in Central American Sun. The most popular Guanacaste region enjoys nearly constant sunshine and offers endless ways to enjoy the sun. The Central pacific beaches such as Jacó and Hermosa provide the typical relaxing sand, but also perfect conditions for surfers intending to catch waves as well as rays. The beaches of the South Pacific offer a different natural beauty in the form of the coral reefs of Caño Island. Also reachable through land, the black sand beaches of Cahuita and Puerto Viejo, South Caribbean, add a volcanic twist to Costa Rica’s tropical paradise.
Costa Rica is also famed for its natural beauty (there are more species of birds in Costa Rica than there are in all of Europe), and rightly so. Despite being a small country, Costa Rica is one of the top 20 most biodiverse nations on the planet. The Tortuguero National Park located within the north Caribbean region is a shining example of this. Desperately rare and beautiful creatures roam the park; the Green Turtle, Blue Heron and the American crocodile to name a few. The La Amistad International Park also boasts over 200,000 hectares of rain forest, a worthy world heritage site – home to many endangered species most famously the Jaguar. Additionally Uvita Tombolo during certain months is the perfect place for whale spotting, if the inland wildlife doesn’t take your fancy.
Costa Rica has the most beautiful mountains and meadows, beaches and islands, rainforests and cloud forests. There is a lot to explore, and one of the best ways to do it is with a rental car. Renting a car gives you the freedom to stop where you want, when you want.You can take side trips along rural roads or stop to enjoy fresh fruit at a local farmers market. With a rental car, your trip is literally in the palm of your hands—and you can steer yourself in whatever direction (and to whichever adventure) that you choose.
Costa Rica is one of the Earth’s top 20 countries with the greatest biodiversity. With two coasts, mountain ranges, and everything in between, Costa Rica has a huge variety of ecosystems packed into a tiny country of only 19,653 square miles and each ecosystem is chock full of its own wildlife.
