Best Things To Do in Costa Rica
Costa Rica's strikingly diverse terrain — lush forests, wildlife reserves, and tropical beaches — offers a little something for every traveler. Beach-lovers staying along the Pacific Coast should head to Guanacaste and the Nicoya Peninsula's palm-fringed coastline for sun and surf. Nature-seekers staying in the Northern Plains or along the Caribbean coast should pay a visit to Puerto Viejo de Talamanca before venturing inland to zip line above Monteverde's Cloud Rainforest and hike Arenal Volcano. Whether you seek sun, nature or adventure, there's much to discover in this paradise.How we rank Things to Do.
