Costa Rica Tourist Guide

Costa Rica

Sailing off the coast of Costa Rica offers a chance to explore remote parts of the country that are not easily accessible to those traveling by land. Whether you are cruising in a small ship or a small yacht, a coastal cruise will highlight the beauty of this pristine region. Along the coastlines, especially along the Caribbean, there are numerous tranquil areas in which to moor your boat and enjoy nature, snorkeling amongst natural beauty of the world underwater, or simply watching the wildlife.

Costa Rica is Central America's most popular tourist destination, particularly for travelers looking to experience ecotourism at its finest. The country boasts a myriad of natural wonders, including active volcanoes, dense rainforests and exotic wildlife. Increasingly, travelers are using sailing as an ecological and relaxing way to experience this environment, with cruises available on both the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea. Offshore, the lush tropical islands are treasure troves of exotic wildlife and spectacular rainforest.

It does not take long to understand why the country is such a wonder for those travelers who want to see nature at its finest. The Volcano Irazu National Park displays the country's largest volcano; the La Paz Waterfall Gardens features five magnificent waterfalls; and here you can also visit the Butterfly Observatory - home to some of the most splendid species of butterflies in the world. And of course, Costa Rica's fertile volcanic soil also produces some of the world's finest coffee.
