SIGHTSEEING IN COSTA RICA
In Costa Rica, you will never want for things to do or places to visit. This tropical paradise offers a abundance of sightseeing opportunities that will leave a beautiful, lasting impression on your memories for decades to come. Costa Rica is brimming with adventure, so the true challenge is finding enough time to do and see it all.
Costa Rica’s cities, towns, and villages are host to some of the most exquisite mixes of both European and Latin American styles of architecture. In the larger metropolitan areas there is a bounty of museums, souvenir bodegas, and markets full of wares from local artisans.
In addition to its long colonial history, ornate cathedrals, and centuries old architecture, Costa Rica is world renowned for its national park system. These protected natural areas make up more than 25% of Costa Rica’s entire landmass. Its vast wetlands, marine zones, pristine coastal regions, unique cloud forests, winding rivers, and varying types of rainforest are the keenly suited for nature enthusiasts of all sorts. You can visit any of the country’s active volcanoes that are sprinkled across the lush green landscape, or enjoy a swim at the base of one of many rainbow bedecked and gushing waterfalls.
The diverse wildlife and their stunning habitats can be appreciated during a late afternoon hike or a day trip through the forest on a recreational vehicle. Another great way to see the natural beauty of Costa Rica is to zip-line under the rainforest canopy. You can visit one of the many biological reserves or wildlife refuges, where you can find complex ecosystems that include sea turtles, endangered mammals and amphibians, hundreds of tropical bird species, thousands of types of strikingly colored butterflies, magnificently lush vegetation, and so much more.
Whether you enjoy a bustling city full of life, your own private, peaceful casita in the jungle, or if you just want to explore the land, Costa Rica has something for everyone. Come enjoy pura vida.
