Warm, clean beaches, beautiful scenery, friendly people, and many outdoor activities, and a slow relaxing pace of life. Costa Rica is a great place to visit. Eco Tourism : Tourists do things outdoors and enjoy the ecology. Costa Rica has no army to support so it spends its money on education and the environment. It is like visiting Hawaii, but it is less developed, less expensive, and more wildlife.
You will be able to swim or surf in the warm clean ocean, even at night, enjoy nature, see wildlife, monkeys, birds, and other flowers, butterflies, hummingbirds, coffee plantation, rain forests, cloud forests, volcanoes, lie in the sun, scuba dive, fish in oceans, lakes, or streams, horseback riding, climb a mountain, take a bike tour, zip line, rafting, canoeing, boating on the ocean…. makes no difference! Costa Rica is for you. In August, Jaco hosts an international surfing contest.
