Costa Rica is the most popular travel destination in Central America for a reason. Costa Rica has it all: beautiful beaches, lush rainforests, and 5% of the entire world's biodiversity! There are beautiful resorts all over the country, and plenty of opportunities to experience the culture and its 'Pura Vida' state of mind ("Pure Life" in English).
This destination is great for all types of travelers, from families to solo adventure seekers. With Caribbean and Pacific coastlines, Costa Rica is wonderful for those who enjoy the beach and water sports. But don't miss the inland adventures! Costa Rica is arguably the adventure capital of the Americas, and inland you will find volcano hikes, zip lines, hanging bridges, ATV tours and much more. see moresee less
