When I first traveled to Costa Rica I fell quickly in love with the landscape. It’s a diverse and incredible landscape with lots of wildlife. Costa Rica is filled with protected national parks. You will find the people very friendly and kind. Costa Rica has 28 National Parks, of which two are Marine Parks that expand its reach of protection out into the sea.
Recommendations for a trip to Costa Rica
If you have 7 to 10 days, do a split stay or a guided tour. You can see the interior of Costa Rica where the cloud forest is located and the volcanos. Then you can make your way to the coast.
The beaches in Costa Rica can be very different from black sand due to the Volcanic ash being mixed into the sand.
Deep-sea fishing is really good in Costa Rica and it’s one of the activities that we book the most for our guests.
Our guests love to snorkel, Paddle Board, layout soaking up the sun at the beach, and spending time swimming at the resort pools.
