Playa del Coco, Ocotal and Panama Beach
Tamarindo Beach and Playa Grande
Playa Negra, Junquillal, San Juanillo, and Marbella
Ostional - Nosara and Samara - Carrillo
Punta Islita, Playa Bejuco and Coyote

The northern Pacific beaches of Guanacaste Province have become popular for their drier climate, excellent surfing and well developed tourism facilities.  Now within just a couple of hours of the new international airport, Costa Rica beach towns and  vacations range from rustic cabins to luxury resort hotels. 


Central & Southern Pacific Beaches

Puntarenas and Caldera Bay
Tarcoles, Punta Leona, Los Suenos and Jaco Hermosa
Quepos - Manuel Antonio
Dominical, Hatillo, Portalon and Matapalo
Sierpe and Drake's Bay
Golfito Bay and Playa Zancudo
Osa Peninsula - Corcovado

Because of their close proximity to San Jose, the central Pacific beaches of Jaco and Manuel Antonio are perhaps the most popular beach towns, visited by tourists looking for awesome surf and exciting nightlife. The more remote Osa Peninsula offers the deep rainforest of Corcovado, with plenty of fun for nature lovers. 










Nicoya Peninsula Beaches

Paquera and Curu
Playa Tambor
Montezuma
Cabuya and Cabo Blanco
Santa Teresa & Mal Pais

More remote than the northern beaches of Costa Rica, the southern Nicoya Peninsula  is usually reached via the Puntarenas Ferry or flights into Tambor. Choose from flop houses for surfers or luxury resorts with golf courses and sportfishing charters.



Caribbean Beach Towns

Tortuguero
Limon
Puerto Viejo
Cahuita
Gandoca Manzanillo

The Caribbean Coast  has flatter topography, gets more rain and boasts wide beaches as far as the eye can see. Don't miss the clear turquoise waters, coral reefs for scuba diving, sea turtle conservation and excellent Costa Rica surfing.




Volcanoes & Rainforests

Arenal Volcano and La Fortuna
Rincon de la Vieja Volcano
Turrialba Paraiso and Orosi
Sarapiqui and Maquenque
Monteverde Cloudforest

While the beaches are beautiful, the volcanoes and rainforests are what make Costa Rica a unique vacation destination. Lo, the wonders of nature when a volcano rumbles and the lush rainforest surrounds you with its sights, sounds and smells.



Central Valley & San Jose

Downtown San Jose and the Historic District
San Jose Metro - Alajuela and Heredia
Juan Santamaria Airport SJO
Talamanca Mountains and San Isidro Perez Zeledon

The Talamanca Range, south of the Central Valley and the City of San Jose, has the highest mountains and the coolest climate in Costa Rica. Much of this is protected areas and fragile ecosystems which support endangered wildlife and endemic species. Some reports say that this is the best birdwatching region in the world.
