Why holiday in Costa Rica?
Costa Rica is primarily about rainforest, wildlife and volcanoes, with a massive variety of flora and fauna – especially flowers and birds – in a luscious and tranquil environment.
Nature tours include forest wire-slides, canoeing and comfortable hikes on gravel tracks to iron-man off-piste treks or volcano climbing, though all activities may end in muscle relaxing hot spas.
Fine sporting alternatives include horseback riding, white water rafting, surfing, fishing and strolling beaches.
Costa Rica tourism is reasonably priced though towns are unattractive and less than interesting.
Unlike some northern cousins, Costa Rica, offers neither ancient ruins, nor stimulating local culture – activities and wildlife is what this country is all about.
