QCOSTARICA TRAVEL – Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast is among the top 10 places Lonely Planet recommendations as best for value.

Lonely Planet’s description of Costa Rica’s Caribbean:

“Looking for a Costa Rica that’s more Tico than tourist, but with everything that makes the country such a big draw? Get to the country’s Caribbean coast and you’ll find a still-evolving destination that’s likely to become a big noise over the next few years. Here you’ll find nesting turtles at Tortuguero, rafting on the Río Pacuare and diving in the reefs of Manzanillo. Surfers and fans of laid-back black-sand beaches should aim for the southern coast. For now, this is a land mostly visited by independent travellers and those seeking out birdlife. Not sold? Two words: sloth sanctuary.”

The other nine countries on the list are:

1. Estonia
2. Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi in Vietnam
3. East Africa
4. New Mexico (the lone U.S. destination to make this list)
5. Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Balkans
6. Galicia, Spain
7. Quebec City, Canada
9. Timor-Leste (or East Timor)
10. Western Australia

The best country in the world?

10174-Lonely_Planet_s_Best_in_Travel_2016_LargeBotswana, says Lonely Planet. Quite sure that Botswana is not even in your top 100, but Lonely Planet ranked Botswana as the “it” country, calling it “invigoratingly wild.”

Lonely Planet named Transylvania in Romania as the best region, and Kotor, Montenegro, as the best city.

The quirky lists of Best animal adventures for families, Most accessible destinations, Super sleeper trains, Best places to test your survival skills, A journey into genius, Best burger experiences and Best places to seek silence, among others, can be reviewed Lonely Planet’s top lists on the website  or buy the book.
