The country boasts many popular tourist spots such as the Arenal Volcano, Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, Jaco Beach, Manuel Antonio National Park, and Tortuguero National Park. Visitors can enjoy activities like zip lining, whitewater rafting, snorkeling, surfing, and more. There are also plenty of hot springs available to relax in during your visit.

For those looking for a bit of a hidden gem in Costa Rica, head over to San Gerardo de Dota. This small mountain town is home to some of the country’s best hiking trails and is known as one of the best places to spot rare species of birds like the quetzal and resplendent hummingbird.

At the end of the day, there’s no better way to experience Costa Rica’s wild beauty than to stay at its local lodges or eco-lodges scattered throughout the country's national parks.
