Things To Do In Costa Rica
Extending from the Pacific Ocean to the Caribbean Sea, Costa Rica provides the perfect combination of relaxation, adventure, culture, gastronomy and wildlife. And, if you’re drawn to the excitement of city life, the bustling, cosmopolitan capital, San Jose, is a great destination. The capital city is also the gateway to Costa Rica’s Central Valley’s national parks, where towering volcanoes, stunning waterfalls and coffee plantations draw visitors from around the world.
In the northwestern region, along 400 miles of pristine coastline, the Guanacaste province boasts incomparable beauty in its landscapes and flourishing nature. As Guanacaste’s capital city, Liberia is known as the “white city” due to the whitewashed walls and beautiful, colonial architecture. Add long summer days, active culture and unparalleled wildlife, and you’ll discover why it’s one of the world’s most popular vacation destinations.

Slow down and enjoy Costa Rica’s pura vida (pure life) with more than 100 beaches along the Pacific Coast to choose from. The beautiful, white- and black-sand beaches provide an ideal setting for a relaxing getaway or surfing vacation. From live music to a night out at the theater, San Jose is brimming with cultural diversity and city life you don’t want to miss.
While the Guanacaste beaches are amazing, the national parks are breathtaking. Go further into the interior to Arenal Volcano National Park — a great spot for hiking and canopy tours. Visit an active volcano, horseback ride along trails, or trek to some of the many remarkable waterfalls.
Bordering the Bongo River estuary, Guanacaste is also a popular destination for wildlife enthusiasts and eco-tourists. Abundant activities and experiences are available — from bird watching to observing monkeys in their natural habitat to an eco-tourism community. For anglers, the shores off Costa Rica are also home to close to 100 world-record catches, including blue marlin and Pacific sailfish.
If you’re looking for souvenirs, the shops in your hotel are the best bet, along with stores in Tamarindo. Things to take home are coffee, woodcarvings, wood salad bowls and platters and ceramics.
Costa Rican cuisine is distinctive, healthy and as diverse as the country’s exotic wildlife. From traditional gallo pinto (black beans and rice) for breakfast to arroz con pollo (rice with chicken) for lunch to casados (rice, black beans, meat, plantains, cheese, bread) for dinner, your taste buds will discover a new world of flavors.
