As the beaches of Costa Rica span to coastlines (The Pacific and Caribbean) it’s no wonder why tourists flock to the richness along the sunny shores. With vast lines of white sandy beaches wrapping around the coast, tourists find tranquility in Manuel Antonio’s most beautiful beach in Costa Rica. This spot is home to some of the best snorkeling, kayaking and dive spots in the country. Mal Pais is where the surf is high and the beaches are perfect to lay out on a hammock, watch the surfers and sway in the hot tropical sun. Playa Dominical is another popular surf spot close to Manuel Antonio’s National Park. Tambor, northeast of Montezuma is the perfect spot to explore the warm waters. Nicoya Peninsula is the largest peninsula of Costa Rica and certainly is a thing of sheer bliss along the shore. If you’re looking for a beach that focuses on eco-tourism, venture off to Tortuguero where adventure awaits you at every turn. Playa tamarindo is where the beach is plentiful and dining and shopping along the shore are world-class. Last, but certainly not least, Corcovado is considered the jewel of The Osa Peninsula. The beaches are plentiful, the waves are pumping and the white sand is just waiting for you to dip your toes into it.

San Jose is the place to be if you’re looking to kick back and party on.

Puerto Viejo, located on the southern coast of Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast is one of the best places to dance the night away.
Why We Like It:
We can’t get enough of Costa Rica for one main reason, its eco-tourism. There really isn’t anywhere in the world that delivers a whole slew of adventures related to the natural side of things in a country that is all in all just so perfect. It’s not everyday you can catch a surf in the morning, visit a volcano in the afternoon and go on a zip-line adventure and then go on a night tour of the countryside all in one day, and this is why we can’t get enough of this place.
