Costa Rica Tours
An eco-tourist's dream, Costa Rica has become synonymous with all an unspoiled tropical paradise can be. Rarely does reality measure up to hype, but Costa Rica certainly comes close. The country's quiet history as a backwater free of colonial excesses has today become a boon, and Costa Rica has cashed in on its purity. And not without merit: blessed with beaches and biodiversity to spare, this is a verdant land of misty volcanoes, roaring rivers and screeching jungles teeming with exotic fauna. Throw in the friendly, educated Ticos (as Costa Ricans are known) and you can see why down here they call it "Pura Vida" - pure life.
Guanacaste Beach Break (TCRGBN)
Ankles sore from too many bungee jumps and volcano treks? Maybe it’s time to stop and smell the frangipani. Costa Rica specializes in adventure, but this beach break is all about relaxing and recharging in style. Let us take care of transportation and the hotel—you just focus on taking it easy. Guanacaste is an eternity away from crowded trails or city streets, so sink into that deck chair poolside, grab a drink from the bar and contemplate the sun melting into the sea.
Highlights: Marvel at breathtaking sunsets over the Pacific Ocean, stroll along the beach and take time to relax
