“EEEeee! This is just like Eat Pray Love!” Jaime squealed as we pedaled away from the bike rental shop on our shiny bikes to explore the Caribbean beaches of the Costa Rican coast. What we discovered were some of the most laid-back, beautiful beaches in Central America.
Costa Rica has over 26 national parks. Two of them combine lush, green jungle, wild animals and sandy beaches: Manuel Antonio on the Pacific coast and and Cahuita on the Caribbean. Most travelers don’t have time to hop from coast to coast, so read on for a closer look at both to find which might be the right fit for you.
La Fortuna should not be missed on a visit to Costa Rica- a gorgeous waterfall, hot springs and a volcano, plus some of the country’s most beautiful scenery!
Costa Rica is the gem in Central America’s tourism crown: lush, green jungles, wild animals, breathtaking beaches and a well-developed infrastructure make a trip to Costa Rica as easy as it can be adventurous, suitable for many different types of visitors. The level of development, however, has also raised prices on goods and services, hotel rates and transportation to a level that most budget travelers (falsely) believe to be out of their range.
These thirty three things are just a start – there were so many positive aspects of our time in Costa Rica, we could easily list thirty three more! Feel free to share your favs here, too!
Being on the road every day of the year means we stay at countless hotels along the way. For all the run-of-the-mill spots, there are the absolute gems which tick all the boxes. This week’s Hotel Tip: Casa Valeria in Samara Beach, Costa Rica.
