This is not to say that Costa Rica has no beach to offer. That is not a problem in Costa Rica. The unmatched clean and crystal clear beauty of Samara, Playa Grande and Pan Dulce can give every beach hungry tourist the most invigorating time of their lives. With water activities like wind surfing, sea kayaking, snorkeling and diving, there is not a lot left to ask for.
The truth though is that the beaches are not the major hot spots of Costa Rica. The real heart of Costa Rica lies in its expansive rainforest system, natural reserves and nature parks. In other words, visiting Costa Rica is the same as taking a plunge deep into the very core of natures beauty and bounty.
There are varied and numerous choices. You can go on a rainforest safari on marvelously unexploited sites like the Savegre River Valley where plant and animal species explode with color and energetic life. You can also alternatively head off to a park where there is even more natural grandeur on display. Some parks are the homes of active volcanoes like the Arenal volcano that simply wont fail to impress.
You can also enjoy nature at close range. Vacationing in Costa Rica almost always includes looking for and watching different species of butterflies and birds. Turtle nesting at Tortuguero National Park is also a common sight to watch out for.
What is great about being in Costa Rica is that vacationers do not just stay as mere watchers before nature. Every adventurous soul has the chance to become part of the astounding wonders of nature. When you are in an exotic location, consider enjoying it while on a canopy ride over a forest or while rappelling down a water fall. If these extreme activities seem too mild for you, you might want to try canyoning and bungee jumping.
Accommodations too offer the rare opportunity for participation. You do not need to travel far to get to breathtaking locations. All you need to do is book in advance in any of the lodges or hotels that are located right inside the parks and forests. Wine, dine and sleep right beside a forest and wake up to the early morning call of unspoiled nature.
There clearly is so much to see and do in Costa Rica. If you do not want to get confused over the many options available, pick specialists in Costa Rica vacations to help you out. Package deals from several travel agents are well worth considering so you can get guided tours at reasonable prices. Of course, you might not get to see all of Costa Rica even on a guided tour. You just have to come back later for more.
