Enjoy Beaches, an Ocean, a Sea, Virgin Jungles, Active Volcanos, and Cool Whitewater!
The most popular Costa Rica vacation destinations are the beaches. There are spectacular beaches on both sides of the country. Pacific or Caribbean, almost all of Costa Rica’s beaches are gems. Best of all, the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea are just six driving-hours apart!
Costa Rica’s Beaches are the best Central America has to offer. And Costa Rica’s mountains and volcanoes are no less beautiful than the beaches.
The terrain in Costa Rica is savage and the relief is massive. A large number of mountains and volcanoes in Costa Rica have more relief than Pikes Peak. A number of Costa Rica’s volcanoes are active. That means thermal hotsprings abound.
A consequence of the terrain, Costa Rica’s rivers are steep and wild. Fortunately, the best rivers in Costa Rica are un-dammed and clean. And, Costa Rica’s whitewater rivers never freeze over and never dry up!
Comperable to the beaches and mountains are the parks. Though only one-fifth the size of Colorado, Costa Rica’s national parks number in the dozens. Its virgin jungles and national parks are comperable to anything in the Americas. Costa Rica, “is a pioneer in reforestation, forest management, and forest protection policies,” according to the World Bank Group.
