What to do in Costa Rica


As you plan your Costa Rican vacation adventure, don’t forget to take the time to plan fun and exciting activities each step of the way! Although most people know of the primary attractions in Costa Rica, such as the tropical rainforests and the beautiful beaches, there are also many other fun things to explore as well.

The small indigenous population of the country is known for its fine handcrafts and art. Be sure to check out the wood carvers in Sarchi and the pottery made before your eyes in Guaitil. Many craft markets can also be found in the downtown of San Jose during the weekends.

Nightlife is an essential part of any vacation package, but don’t worry! Bars and clubs are concentrated in the popular beach areas, so you will never be too far from the action. The city of San Jose also has a relatively active nightlife.

A great way to explore the country while also staying fit is mountain biking. Most beach locations have bikes for rent. But just a warning: Biking in Costa Rica is not for the weak or timid. Although boasting of spectacular views, the mountainous terrain provides for a difficult ride.

The Costa Rican beaches provide the perfect postcard landscape for relaxation and fun in the sun. So even if you don’t have any plans, just spending all day on the beach is enough to please just about anyone!

So when checking out all our Costa Rican vacation deals, don’t have any doubts as to the exceptional time you will have here!
