Costa Rica tourismA truly spectacular country, Costa Rica offers something for everybody....adventure, ecotourism and relaxation...

Costa Rica is a nature lover's paradise, offering an extensive system of national parks and nature preserves, some 10% of its territory is designated as national parks. Here you'll enjoy the active, conical shaped Arenal volcano and the Monteverde nature reserve where you'll be treated to an incredible variety of wildlife, flora and over 400 species of birds.

A good base to start your travels in Costa Rica, is its busy capital San Jose. Highlights of San Jose include the baroque-style Teatro Nacional, the Plaza De La Cultura, and the bustling and colourful Mercado Central.

On the Pacific coast the oldest and most developed tourist destination is Jaco Beach. This broad, volcanic grey beach has great waves for bodysurfing. Close by is Manuel Antonio Park which also has outstanding flor a and fauna. Take the trails to see squirrels, white-faced monkeys, iguanas, sloths, parrots, ocleots and many others.

Further to to the north is Guanacoste. Wonderful waterfalls and beautiful beaches abound.
