This is the adventurous way to explore the pristine beaches and lush jungles!

You will drive along country roads through tropical forests where you will see monkeys, birds and other wildlife. You will also take some time to stop at one of the secluded beaches for a dip in the ocean, or explore some of the refreshing rivers cascading through the jungles.


If you can imagine beaches, waves, mountains, lakes, volcanoes, jungles, rivers, cloud forests, exotic plants, and animals of every kind, odds are you will find it all in Costa Rica. It is a country that will not only surround you with unequivocal beauty, but also one whose people will immediately welcome you as a friend and make you feel at home.

Costa Rica has a beach to meet your every desire. You can picture yourself surrounded by palm trees, hammocks, and a peaceful ocean breeze. Depending upon your location, you’ll relax on white, grey, or black sand beaches met by the cool, crystal clear blue waters of the Pacific Ocean or the Caribbean where viewing exotic marine life is a daily event.

When you are in Costa Rica, it’s not long before you begin to realize that you have left the “ordinary” far behind. From the Osa Peninsula to the Nicaraguan border, the Pacific coast offers you every type of opportunity you can imagine to enjoy your vacation.
