Where to go in Costa Rica Places to Visit in your Holidays.
The first places to check, Costa Rica vacation is determined by what you do on holiday. You can plant them in one place for any length, but most tourists bouncing around the country to enjoy the abundant experiences and diverse country has to offer.
This is where most of the Costa Rica trips begin. The Central Valley is home to the capital of Costa Rica, San José, in addition to the international airport.
San Jose will probably be your “jump” point for the rest of your trip in Costa Rica. However, consider spending a day or two to see what San Jose has to offer. As for Costa Rica vacation spots go, there are a large number of museums and parks to check to relax in. And this is just the beginning.
Of particular interest is the Central Market or Central Market, which is a great place to experience the local culture, pick up some souvenirs, store or some local gourmet coffee. There are many small shops selling fresh produce, meats and fish more. And do not forget to stop and eat something inside dining areas.
If Aboriginal culture is your thing, we also explore the many museums and galleries in and out of the city. Shopping is abundant and night bars and discos to jump!
Just outside of San Jose, Heredia, is the Cafe Britt Coffee Tour. For those who have an affinity for coffee that is, watch this. You can visit a working coffee plantation real. The coffee is not expensive here – I bought 20 bags at home with me – but it is much cheaper in the central market if we did this.
There are many things to try and do in the north. If you are from San Jose, it is likely your first holiday destination as one of the most memorable and surprising – the Arenal Volcano. It has been erupting since 1968. The views are beautiful, and if the sky is not so bad, you will see the red lava flowing down the walls.
At the foot of Arenal La Fortuna neighbor several hot springs where you can relax and enjoy the warmth of luxury. In collaboration with the Arenal, these hot springs are on the “must do” list. Tabacn is a well-known choice, but not the only option. In addition, Eco Thermal bald. We spent a late night, dark romantic to get the most excellent neck and shoulders hanging in sweltering heat beating cascade. Just great.
In summarizing the adventures of the north is the waterfall of La Fortuna. The waterfall drops 200 feet to the right in a swimming hole bright blue-green. ‘
North Pacific Coast
Along the North Pacific and North of the area is the small corner of Monteverde. Will you stop here to enjoy the extraordinary biological Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve.
Going to the coast, the region of Guanacaste and the Nicoya Peninsula in the North Pacific coast is one of the most densely populated areas of Costa Rica. However, tourists flock to these destinations to explore the many beautiful beaches that invite and pepper the coast. If you ever going to learn to surf, consider taking a few educational sessions with local residents to make your dream a reality.
Divers can enjoy the many dive sites and easy access. Marine life is as vibrant as life in the cloud forests.
If you are starting your trip in this neighborhood generally consider air transport at the airport Daniel Oduber in Liberia. The vast majority of the northern Pacific coast is less than an hour by car or bus.
Central Pacific Coast
Puntarenas region in the central Pacific beach and coastal towns welcome exotic blend of nature’s most famous marmalade Costa Rica.
A few hours from San Jose, Jaco city is not very big, but is known for its sandy black. Get a surfing lesson or rent a surfboard or bodyboard. (Never bothered with the situation, so that a surfboard was more my speed.) You can find a number of restaurants available for your dining pleasure, and clubs and bars stay open late. Some consider this city a “beach party”.
An hour south is the popular Manuel Antonio National Park. This is the most popular park in the country. Go early, as many visitors can be rented at the same time – when capacity is reached, you should expect people to leave before entering.
Manuel Antonio has some of the best trails, beaches excellent for swimming, plus some of the most diverse in the country. This allows one of those “must-do” vacation spots.
And here’s a suggestion: a guide to improving your shipment. Our guide was pointing lizards, sloths and monkeys were essentially right under our noses. This is quite an amazing park.
South Pacific Coast
National Geographic called this area “the most biologically intense place on earth”. Costa Rica South Pacific Coast has the highest percentage of land devoted to national parks. Access has improved significantly following the completion of a road project recently. For anyone interested in wildlife, a visit to Corcovado National Park. Here you can see most of the types of monkeys, birds and rare wildlife, and even the big cats such as the jaguar and puma call home. (If you’re lucky, you’ll find the fingerprints.) Vegetation is more diverse than anywhere else in the country.
The Osa Peninsula is the place to find awesome fishing snorkeling and diving. Base your stay in Drake Bay and make your way to the Caño Island Biological Reserve for snorkeling and diving top Costa Rica can offer.
The east coast has come to be where Columbus landed and was named the region “Costa Rica” or Costa Rica.
Contrasting the Pacific coast, the Caribbean coast is much less developed and less crowded. This is really one of the most exclusive resorts. It has a very different compared to other parts of the country – thought and culture reggae “rasta” and will not be too far.
Puerto Limon is the capital of the region of Limón. It is the principal city of the Caribbean coast and a port of call for many cruise lines. Tortuguero National Park, on the north coast is known for its occupants: sea turtles. A number of species (some decrease in the number) using the nesting beaches.
Another important attraction for the region (excluding miles of private beaches) is the Cahuita National Park in the town of Cahuita. With the largest reef in Costa Rica, this park is famous for its diving and snorkeling opportunities.
