4 Places You Must Explore on Your Next Visit to Costa Rica

Costa Rica is one of the most popular tourist hotspots in Central America- there are no two ways about it. After all, it’s replete with beautiful and relaxing beaches, awe-inspiring volcanoes, and massive rainforests.

What’s more, the place has a number of interesting spots that you can visit to have a great time. In this blog, we list the top ones so that you can make the most of your time there.

Tortuguero

Spanning across over 77,000 acres, the “Land of Turtles” which is what Tortuguero stands for, is what can be best described as the Amazon Rainforest of Costa Rica. It takes a good chunk of land on the northern coast and covers a slew of canals and rivers that go through the jungle.

As the name suggests, Tortuguero is home to thousands of turtles which often visit the shoreline to nest with their pals. If timing can be adjusted, then you should try going there in May or April as that’s when you can see other interesting wildlife here as well.

Arenal

Costa Rica has many volcanoes, and Arenal is one of the most popular ones here. It’s located at an altitude of 1,650 m and also erupts from time to time (Check out a 360-degree photo of the place here). So, if you are there at the perfect time, then you may get to see some real lava action!

The region around Arenal offers many interesting activities for you to engage in. For instance, there is the national park where you can go for trekking and the La Fortuna waterfall where you can spend some quality time alone. Just make sure that you pick the best time to visit Costa Rica for your vacation as the timing alone can make a huge difference to your overall experience.

Monteverde

Monteverde is another popular cloud forest where you can find some of the most beautiful quetzal birds in the world. In fact, a large number of people visit the country just to see their rare birds live, although the area which is incredibly green and wet attracts over 250,000 people every year for other things like zip-line adventure as well.

Santa Teresa

Santa Teresa is a hippy backpacker town at the bottom of the Nicoya coast which isn’t much other than a beautiful beach with hotels, yoga centers, restaurants, and surf shops. However, the ambiance and culture of this place are incredible. You will find people getting up early to go surfing or just to enjoy the sunrise which is breath-taking, to say the least. It’s a memorable experience to witness all this.

Go to Costa Rica!

Being one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, Costa Rica can be a little crowded and touristy. However, it has so much to offer- relaxing beaches, exotic wildlife, friendly people, that the place warrants a visit by everyone who wants to just unwind and stop to “smell the roses”.

If you are planning to pay a visit yourself, then be sure to include the places above in your itinerary.

Happy traveling!
