Why travel to Costa Rica?

Costa Rica is a wonderful travel destination


In Costa Rica you will find a lot of natural- highlights. Its beauty is so extensive that you probably have to return for another journey to continue marveling while you discover it.


Below, we list a summary of Costa Rica most exciting highlights, ordered by region: many details and more information about this magical places can be found on the specific section divided by regions we had made for you.

Central Valley

The area around the capital San José is beautiful and has a lot to offer. It is worth staying a couple of days to discover the beauty of the nearby volcanoes, national parks, rivers, cities and forests. Volcanoes such as Póas, Irazú & Turrialba (which is the most active one in Costa Rica in this moment) stand here surrounded by their magical national parks. Also this zone offers adventure tourism.


A visit to San José is obligatory at least for a couple of hours. We recommend staying in an Hotel outside the central area, but near the City (Hotel near San José) and discover the beauty of the central valley from there.

Northern Plains & Highlands

The volcanoes located north of the central valley and the plains and before the border with Nicaragua are really amazing and offer many natural attractions and small wonders to discover. Most famous are Arenal Volcano, Monteverde and Caño Negro wildlife.

Northern Pacific

The beaches, flatland from Guanacaste and the northern pacific coast including the Nicoya Peninsula are well known as the Sun Coast of Costa Rica. There are plenty of beautiful beaches, great climate all year and also attractions like the volcanoes Orosí and Rincon de la Vieja.

Central Pacific

The central Pacific Coast is very close to the Central Valley and offers not only a perfect touristic infrastructure but also very interesting national parks. Attention: Due to its proximity to San José, it will be crowded on the weekends .

Southern Pacific

Known worldwide for the immense and virgin rainforests, the southern Region offers adventure and pure nature. The Osa Peninsula with the Corcovado national park are the most famous places to visit in this area. Don't miss it!

The Caribbean

The landscape and the people at the east- coast of Costa Rica are very different from the West- coast. The beautiful Tortuguero National Park is a big attraction in this area. Take a tour, we are sure you wont regret it!
