Costa Rica is a rugged, rainforested Central American country with coastlines on the Caribbean and Pacific. Though its capital, San Jose, is home to cultural institutions like the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum, Costa Rica is known for its beaches, volcanoes, and biodiversity. If marketing experts could draw up an ideal destination, Costa Rica might be it. The 'rich coast' has earned its name and stands apart from its Central American neighbors on the cutting edge of so many trends: surfing, farm-to-table restaurants, and sustainable tourism. Rainforest hikes and brisk high-altitude trails, rushing white-water rapids and warm-water, world-class surfing: Costa Rica offers a dizzying suite of outdoor adventures in every shape and size - from the squeal-inducing rush of a canopy zipline to a sun-dazed afternoon at the beach. National parks allow visitors to glimpse life in both rainforest and cloud forest, simmering volcanoes offer otherworldly vistas, and reliable surf breaks are suited to beginners and experts alike. The best part is, given the country's size, you can plan a relatively short trip that includes it all so you don't even have to choose between the many exciting opportunities. Finding your center on a surfboard or yoga mat, descending bat-filled caves or misty volcanic peaks, or hiking, biking or ziplining through a nature-lover's paradise - there's no limit to the adventures waiting for you in this tropical oasis. With so much to see, do, and taste, Costa Rica is a great place to experience, and there are several exciting tour options available to help you make the most of your time here.
