Costa Rica Tourism
Safe and sophisticated. Costa Rica is quickly becoming one of the most popular travel destinations on the map! The reasons are plentiful. Of course Costa Rica is replete with bountiful foliage and soothing water in every appealing form… oceans, lakes, rivers, and waterfalls. It is home to a mind-blowing array of wildlife! And the tropical weather is oh-so dreamy.
But the culture of the Costa Rican people and their stable democratic government also play a role in the country's leadership in tourism. Costa Rica seems to provide a greater sense of personal security than other less-developed Central American countries. Lodging is plentiful and upscale resorts offer first-class service. And with several good options for transportation, visitors can readily go between regions.
Costa Rica is world-renowned as an eco-tour wonderland. If you are drawn to expedition activities and adventure sports, Costa Rica will not disappoint. Go bungee jumping over a deep canyon river. Go zip-lining between towering rainforest trees. Go white water rafting on bubbling primordial river. Go hike a volcano. Go sea kayaking in a bay of dolphins. Go, go, go… you will never run out of exciting things to do.
Prefer to spend your time off at an easier pace? Costa Rica offers plenty of peaceful pleasures, too. Maybe your perfect vacation calls for an un-hurried round of golf followed by an ocean side dinner. Or a quiet canopy walk through endless green leaves where colorful birds are your only company.
Whether you are planning a family trip, a romantic honeymoon or just a much-needed vacation, Costa Rica offers a combination of relaxation and high-energy fun. As the Tico's say, "Pura vida"—the pure life.
