Tour Costa Rica
A tour of Costa Rica reveals a land with a relaxing lifestyle, peaceful democratic government, and an overwhelmingly beautiful natural landscape. The wildlife of Costa Rica is populous around the tourist locations and quite easy to spot. Tour Costa Rica to enjoy the peaceful serenity and thrill-seeking adventure of a beautiful nation.
The transformation that Costa Rica has undergone in the past 60 years is astonishing. Prior to 1950, more than half of the country was stricken with poverty and few people lived past the age of 50. Today, less than a fifth of the Costa Rican population lives below the poverty line and the life expectancy is equal to that of the United States. The rise in the quality of life has attracted tourists that are looking for a quite, peaceful, relaxing vacation, with the opportunity to go on tropical adventures as well.
What types of adventures? Well, thrill-seeking travelers can snorkel, surf, hike, and go animal-spotting. Those who want an adrenaline rush can zip-line through canopy tops or go hiking across active volcanos. The landscape is extremely varied, allowing travelers a diverse mix of experiences.
Tour Puerto Viejo de Talamanca
Puerto Viejo de Talamanca is a strong Caribbean mix of beautiful beaches, fierce surfing, and a relaxed native attitude. Throw in a vibrant nightlife with live music and delicious restaurants and you have a recipe for a wild good time. Sure it’s not the most traditional part of Costa Rica because more and more expats move to Puerto Viejo de Talamanca every year, but the excitement and leisure of the area cannot be beat.
The area of downtown Puerto Viejo is a long paved road that follows the coastline; it’s covered with ice cream shops, surf shops, open-air bars, and a vibrant, crowded community that is guaranteed to show a tourist a good time. As fun as the downtown area is, the real attractions are the beautiful beaches of Playa Negra, Salsa Brava, Playa Cocles, and Punta Uvita.
Tour Parque Nacional Corcovado
The national park of Corcovado is the last tropical rain forest in Pacific Central America. The biological diversity is intense: scarlet macaws, Baird’s tapir, giant anteaters, the rare harpy eagle, and many other endangered species. If you’re a traveler that enjoys animal watching and the ecological experience, then the Parque Nacional Corcovado is a must-see attraction.
The park is located in the southwestern corner of the Península de Osa and surrounds at least eight distinct habitats: mangrove swamps, primary and secondary rain forest, low altitude cloud forest, and many other diverse regions. The most accessible region of the park is a 46km stretch of sandy coastline.
Tour Playa Conchal
Playa Conchal is arguably the most beautiful beach in all of Costa Rica. The name “conchal” comes from the billions of tiny shells that fill the beach shore and are slowly ground into sand by the waves of the ocean and the steps of flip-flop wearing tourists. Playa Conchal is the place to enjoy the rarity of a clean, navy blue water and the excitement of snorkeling through a clean ocean.
The top resort at Playa Conchal is Paradisus Playa Conchal Beach & Resort. It’s 285 hectares has absolutely everything you could ever imagine, including marble columns and gold-trimmed toothbrush holders. If you want the true luxury experience, then Playa Conchal is the place to be.
Tour San Jose
San Jose is the most metropolitan city in all of Central America. The city is full of fast-food restaurants, shopping malls, and office spaces. For the majority of travelers, San Jose is just a pit-stop before getting to the sun-loving shores of Costa Rica. But for those that look past the rough exterior, you’ll find that the city has a vibrant, attractive night-life suited only for the most hardcore of party goers.
The city also has many museums and very popular, delicious restaurants. It’s definitely worth your time as you’ll see how the majority of Costa Rican people live, work, and play.
Tour Tortuguero Village
Tortuguero Village is best known for the hatchling turtles that crawl across the sands during the turtle season, which runs from late July through August. The village is completed protected from the outside world through green forests and blue sea; the village is only accesible by air or water, and reservations must be made well in advance.
The village is alive and buzzing during the peak turtle season, but is quiet the rest of the year as the lush jungles are amongst the rainiest in the word. Tortuguero is arguably the quietest area on the Caribbean coast; the village is mostly run by the wild creatures that inhabit the beautiful and isolated spot.
