Costa Rica Tourism: Best of Costa Rica
A tropical haven pulsing with "pura vida"
Embraced by the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, Costa Rica has been attracting eco-tourists for decades, thanks to rich biodiversity and abundant wildlife. Here you’ll find splendid beaches that spill into sparkling blue waters, peaceful conservation areas, and outstanding adventure sports. Get in touch with ancient civilizations at the National Museum or tiptoe to the edge of a crater at Poás Volcano National Park. Surfers will dig the unparalleled conditions of the Guanacaste province.

- Byraquel_z 🙊🙉🙈🐒Spending Time in San JoseMany people who come to Costa Rica choose to avoid San Jose, the capital. However, I enjoy spending a day or two in the city periodically. You can find a good choice of hotels and other accomodations in all price ranges. There are also many interesting restaurants. As well there are museums, parks, markets and other sights worth seeing.19 items

But you don't need to head straight to the beach—travelers flying into urban San José will find plenty to do with kids upon arrival. Interactive museums, local markets, and more are a great way to spend a day in the city.5 items
