Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a country in Central America, bordered in the north by Nicaragua and in the south with Panama. To the west lies the Pacific Ocean and to the east the Caribbean Sea.

This country is an authentic tropical paradise with diverse landscapes, flora, and fauna. Caribbean and Pacific beaches, high mountains, volcanoes, rain forests, dry tropical and temperate forests and swampy lowlands are all to be found in this amazing country.

 

The Caribbean Coast is the least visited region of the country, being quite isolated, but is great for white-water rafting and sea turtle spotting.

 

On the South Costa Rica there is an amazing rainforest bursting of exotic flora and fauna, as well as some stunning and remote tropical beaches.

 

Guanacaste, on the north west of Costa Rica, is a "dry region" with extraordinary beaches and surfing spots together with some large volcanic and dry forest parks up in the northern border.

 

REASONS TO VISIT

 

One of the world's most popular destinations for eco-tourism.

 

Amazing beaches, perfect for sunbathing and surfing.

 

White water rafting adventure tours through the rain forest.

 

BEST TIME TO VISIT

 

Costa Rica is perfect to visit any time of the year, being comfortably warm in the highlands and hot along the coasts. The dry season goes from December until April being therefore the best time to visit the country.

 

HOW TO GET THERE

 

Juan Santamaría Airport is located close to the cities of Alajuela, Heredia and the capital San José.

 

To the cities you can take a bus or a taxi. A taxi to San Jose city centre costs $10.

 

Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport is near Liberia in the Guanacaste province, very close to the Pacific Northwest coast.

 

TRAVELLING AROUND

 

Renting a car (4WD) is probably the best way to get around and explore Costa Rica.

 

Most of the principal destinations in Costa Rica are served by daily buses from and to San Jose. Another simple way to get around Costa Rica is to use the services of mini-vans. The drivers know the roads well and the vans are clean and comfortable.
