Most travel destinations have their day at some stage, with an uprising in travel coming seemingly out of nowhere. One destination which is certainly enjoying a tourism boom is Central America. There are many countries within this landmass, however vacation packages to Costa Rica are becoming increasingly popular, and it’s not hard to see why when you look at the abundant nature and eco-tourism on offer.
There are many vacation packages to Costa Rica on offer nowadays, and many of them take visitors to regions which have the most in the way of exotic and wonderful wildlife. Some of the world’s weirdest and wonderful flora and fauna are native of this wonderful country, and there are also some of the most stunning castaway beaches on offer too.
Of course, before we go any further we need to understand where Costa Rica actually is. Well, located in Central America, Costa Rica is surrounded by both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, whilst also sharing a boarder with Nicaragua, and Panama. In terms of when to head to this exotic country full of nature and wonder, it depends whether you want hot and dry, or warm and wet. The country experiences a summer, which is known as the dry season, running from December to April, and a winter, or wet season, which runs from May to November. During the wet season, humidity can be an issue, and rain to some degree is quite constant.
In terms of destinations, San Jose is always going to be your starting point. This is the capital city, and the location of the main airport. There are plenty of things to see and do here, including history and architecture. Many people choose to spend a few days in the city, before heading off to the beach resorts and nature adventure trips in other locations within the country.
The Central Pacific region of the country is probably the most visited area, after the capital city. This is because most of the beaches are here, in terms of the best quality, as well as large hotels and national parks. There is a lot of nature tourism in this region, which gives you a good middle ground between tourism and off the beaten track parks. Having said that, those who truly want to see the wonder of Costa Rica’s natural side, should be heading to South Pacific Costa Rica. This is where the most diverse natural areas are located, and the beaches are simply stunning, and quite remote. The wildlife around here is also as diverse as the landscapes, with brightly coloured amphibians, and even the jaguar calling this area home.
Costa Rica is one of those countries that has to be seen to be believed, and for such a long time it was relatively unfounded on the tourism map. This is now changing, and more and more people are experiencing the wonder of this natural and wonderful land for themselves. The fact there are package breaks heading to Costa Rica means that travel to this once off the beaten track destination is becoming more mainstream, and this can only be good news for a) the country and its economy, and b) visitors who get to experience the beauty of nature first-hand for themselves.
