¡Pura vida, pirates! This small Central American country packs a big punch. Costa Rica offers stunning beaches, beautiful jungles, unique cloud forests and contains 5% of the world's biodiversity. Whether you're into surfing, hiking, adrenaline inducing activities or just looking for a place to relax, this country has something for everyone.
We all know that Costa Rica is home to some of the world's most beautiful beaches, but there are plenty of other bodies of water to enjoy in this lush country. Head up to Arenal and take a dip in the natural hot springs for a rejuvenating and relaxing afternoon. Prefer something that gets your heart pumping? Book a whitewater rafting tour and get a first hand look at one of many rivers or kayak through mangroves.
Take a Walk on the Wild Side!
Costa Rica is filled with national parks which allow visitors fantastic opportunities to see wildlife in action. Head to Tarcoles River to see crocodiles or visit the parrots at The Ara Project, a World Parrot Trust partner organisation dedicated to saving Costa Rica's native scarlet macaws and great-green macaws. Fun fact: Our logo is a macaw named Ruby! If you prefer monkeys, sloths and lizards, head to Manuel Antonio National Park to catch critters in their natural habitat. We recommend going early in the morning to avoid tour groups.
The Floor is Lava!
This small country is home to many volcanoes, some of which are still active. Take a trek to the foothills of Arenal Volcano in the northern part of Costa Rica. Feeling adventurous? Check out Costa Rica's tallest volcano, Irazu Volcano near the capital city. If you plan your trip on a clear day, you might be able to see the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans!
Up In The Clouds
Once you've had enough of the heat, head up to Monteverde or Santa Elena to explore the beautiful cloud forests. Characterised by 100% humidity, these regions are also incredibly biodiverse. Pack your hiking boots, a sweater and a camera and get ready to see at least 50 shades of green. Looking to cross zip lining off your bucket place? Monteverde is the perfect place to soar through the clouds.
Under The Sea
Scuba divers and snorkelling enthusiasts will find themselves in an oceanic heaven in Costa Rica. Cahuita National Park offers more than 35 types of coral reef, making the trek to Punta Cahuita is well worth the snorkelling opportunity. On the opposite side of the country, you'll find the Caño Island Biological Reserve which offers visitors visibility between 30-100 feet, perfect for divers.
The daily grind got you down? Check out one of Costa Rica's stunning and rejuvenating yoga retreats. Watch the sunrise while enjoying deep breathing exercises, or watch the sunset from a beach after a peaceful walk. Prefer golf to yoga? You're in luck as there are many high-class golf courses such as the Marriott Los Suenos and the Four Seasons Guanacaste, which is one of the world's top 50 courses.
