Costa Rica - A Bit of Everything
Tour Costa Rica
Mother Nature was clearly in a good mood when she dealt Costa Rica's hand. It is a land of simmering volcanoes, thermal waters, lush rainforest and golden beaches. Centrally located capital city San Jose welcomes the majority of flights from Europe. Tortuguero is among the country's best-loved national parks. Its turtle-breeding grounds and diverse wildlife draw visitors from afar. In the northern highlands to the west, the Monteverde Cloudfest and the surf beaches of the Nicoya Penninsula are also popular. On the Southern Pacific Coast, Manuel Antonia is one of the country's most popular national parks, but a more remote option is the little-visited Osa Peninsula.
