Few countries can boast the diversity found in the Central American gem that is Costa Rica. More than just a tropical beach destination, Costa Rica vacations are packed with possibilities. Explore the magical cloud and rain forests, protected national parks and exhilarating volcano peaks or relax and rejuvenate on raw, unspoiled beaches - there is never a dull moment here.
All inclusive and self-catering accommodations provide the perfect backdrop to a perfect holiday. From simple, jungle hotels to lavish beachside resorts, Costa Rica has it all. The bustle of the capital of San Jose opens up to unbeatable nature that some prefer to drive to fully experience. Costa Rica car rentals are popular and affordable and make for a uniquely memorable adventure. Liberia in the north is your gateway to the Arenal Volcano and the flawless beaches of Papagayo and Puntarenas. Further south you'll find the surf towns of Hermosa and Jaco and eventually, beautiful Manuel Antonio National Park and the quaint charm of Quepos.
Stay active with yoga, jungle treks and zip-line thrills above the forest's canopy, wildlife viewing with knowledgeable guides or get in the water for a snorkel or a scuba dive but whatever you do, make sure you clear your camera for space and get ready for the time of your life, the 'rich coast' is waiting!
