Where in Costa Rica to visit

Monteverde Cloud Forest

Encompassing 26,000 acres of pristine cloud forest, the Monteverde Reserve is home to a diverse range of species including the resplendent quetzal, howler monkeys and sloths, alongside some 2,500 different plant species. It's also a fantastic example of sustainable tourism with income from entrance fees directed back into educative, preservation and research programs.

Tortuguero National Park

Situated in the northeast of the country on the Caribbean coast, Tortuguero National Park is famous for the numerous turtles that come to its stunning beaches to nest. Giant leatherback, hawksbill, loggerhead and the endangered green turtles all come here during the nesting season from July to October with 22 miles of beach protected for this very reason.

Cahuita National Park

Founded in 1970 to protect the coral reef that runs alongside the coast, Cahuita National Park is home to plenty of wildlife on land, as well as in its waters. Swamp, rainforest and woodland all thrive within its boundaries, supporting a rich diversity of life. Hiking trails wind their way around the reserve and the palm-fringed beaches of Cahuita itself are hardly a bad place to rest up after a hike!

San Jose

Arriving at Juan Santamaria Airport in San Jose, it can be tempting to dash straight for the nearest rainforest to start discovering Costa Rica's incredible natural heritage! But a day or two spent exploring the country's capital is time well spent. The city is Costa Rica's cultural hub, with plenty of museums to explore, and beautiful plazas in which to enjoy a coffee or a meal and learn more about this fascinating country.
