Costa Rica is Central America’s special jewel and it is only a three hour hop from Miami in a plane. Costa Rica will appeal to all ages and the country’s natural attractions, wildlife and reputation for enlightened conservation draw tourists from all over the world. The Government has made a real effort to preserve the country’s image as an eco-tourism heaven, making Costa Rica one of the best places to experience the tropics naturally and with minimal impact, at least for now. The country’s bio-diversity attracts nature lovers from all over the world. Add to this the incredible warmth and sincere hospitality of the local people and the exceptional variety of hotels along Guanacaste’s Pacific coast and you have a recipe for a unique and memorable destination for couples, singles and families.

 

60-Second Geography

Costa Rica

One of the most amazing regions in Costa Rica is the Guanacaste region, located along the Northwest Pacific Coast. It is a perfect central point from which to explore Costa Rica’s diversity. The natural setting is casual, secure, and unassuming. And the local “Ticos” are warm and friendly and eager to share the bounty of the Guanacaste province with visitors. Bird-watching, exhilarating zip-line canopy tours, excellent diving and water sports and exceptional hotels all combine to make Guanacaste a perfect choice for visitors. From crushed pink shells to salt and pepper volcanic sand, the beaches are as diverse as the nearby eco- adventures. Visit the popular resort town of Tamarindo, with its great surf and white-sand beaches, for browsing and souvenir shopping. From panoramic rolling savannahs to bubbling hot springs to hissing active volcanoes to remarkable beaches, visitors of all ages will experience a vacation like no other in Costa Rica’s popular Guanacaste region.

  • In Costa Rica, the seasons revolve around a dry season, December through April and a wet season May through November. Costa Rica promotes their “wet season” as the “Green Season.” This is not just clever marketing. The Green Season is an excellent time to travel to Costa Rica. This is when the warm, wet climate brings the plant life into full bloom, and the country’s verdant flora explodes with the vibrant life characteristic of Costa Rica
  • As a bridge between North and South America, Costa Rica’s biodiversity is astonishing. Monkeys, sloths, tapirs and wildcats as well as an unrivaled collection of bird species numbering more than 800 make their home in the rainforest. With more than 25% of the country in national parks, there is great opportunity to leave the beaten path and to see the wide variety of plant and animal life year round.
  • Costa Rica’s mountain ranges, situated between two oceanic climatic and moisture zones mean that rainfall is a part of Costa Rica’s ecology. Annual rainfall averages approximately 100 inches in the plains and 150 inches in the mountains occurring in the early afternoons in the highest elevations and late afternoon or night in the plains.
  • Any experienced visitor to Costa Rica will tell you that there is no end to the amazing array of things to do. Costa Rica is a nature lover’s paradise. Better yet, ecotourism is a way of life in Costa Rica.
  • The country plays host to a wide variety of adventure sports and favorites of travelers include mountain biking, river rafting and scuba diving. Hikes through the rainforests include trips to active volcanoes, boat trips on rivers snaking through the rain forests and opportunities to ride a zip line through the forest canopy. You can watch live lava flows on Arenal Volcano, bird watch (some of the best and most diverse in the world), stand on mountaintops where both the Atlantic and the Pacific are visible, watch the marine turtles at Tortuguero
