Best Vacation Spot in Costa Rica

Before tourism became relevant, everything outside the central valley’s off the beaten path, Costa Rica. But now, and for more than twenty years, tourism has played a significant role in Costa Rica’s economy. It’s transforming many of its pristine wonders and local villages into busy tourist hubs with lots of hotels. For example, La Fortuna, Monteverde, Tamarindo, Tortuguero, Jaco, Quepos, Puerto Viejo and others. If you have already visited these beautiful places and think there are no more treasures to be found. Well, you couldn’t be more wrong.  Here are just a few of our favorite spots for you to find the Best Vacation Spot in Costa Rica.

The Stunning Blue Waters of Rio Celeste

If you’ve seen a photo of “Rio Celeste” you’re probably thinking “that must be Photoshop, there’s no way the river could be that blue!” That’s what I thought before I actually had a chance to visit this beautiful area. The combination of sulfur and minerals found in the Rio Celeste give it a color found nowhere else on Earth. Taking a hike through the national park here is well worth the experience – and your likely to have the trails and the guide all to yourself!

The Cloud Forest of San Gerardo & Chirripo Summit

The mountainous region in Costa Rica’s Southern zone is home to the country’s highest peaks and some really intense and unique landscape. Head south from San Jose over the “Cerro de la Muerte” (literally the Mountain of Death) through the scenic mountain area known as “Los Santos”. San Gerardo is a chilly mountain town on the banks of Savegre River – rated the cleanest river in all of Central America. Quetzals and hummingbirds abound in the charming mountain village. From hear take on the country’s highest peak, Chirripo. If you’re willing to make the effort to hike the 8-10 hours to the summit, you’ll have an opportunity to see both the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean’s on a clear day – a site found almost no where else on Earth!

Rivers & Colonial Villages

The Pacuare River is rated as one of the most scenic in the world and is a highlight to many people’s trips to Costa Rica. Most people just take a day tour on the river, however an overnight adventure on the banks of the Pacuare is an amazing experience. Choose to visit the rural town of Turrialba and get to see a more “authentic” part of the country. Take a trip to the Orosi Valley, Sarapiqui – the list of off the beaten path destinations just goes on and on!
