Costa Rica is a small country in Central America. This nation has bewilderingly diverse culture, climates, flora, and fauna, and landscapes range from rainforests, to dry tropical and temperate forests, to volcanoes, to Caribbean and Pacific beaches, to high mountains, and marshy lowlands. Costa Rica is an exceptionally stable and peaceful country compared to the volatile region it’s in, and is one of the world’s top destinations for nature and ecotourism. Owing in part to its comparative wealth, it can be a bit more expensive than its northern neighbors.

  Central Valley
The mostly urban center of Costa Rica, holding the most populated cities, including the capital, San José, many museums and several volcanoes.
  Central Pacific
Home to well-known beaches and national parks, and one of the most tourist-oriented parts of Costa Rica, along with Guanacaste.
  Guanacaste
The “dry region” of Costa Rica, with little rain any time of year, fabulous beaches and surfing, and large volcanic and dry forest parks in the north by the Nicaraguan border
  Limón
The least visited, more isolated region, with great whitewater rafting, sea turtle spotting and many beautiful beaches. It’s an outpost of Jamaican culture, with many residents of Jamaican descent.
  North Costa Rica
A beautiful, sparsely populated, and mountainous region, most famous for its active volcano, Arenal, and the surrounding hot springs, volcanic lakes, and cloud forests.
  South Pacific Costa Rica
One of the most bio-diverse environments on the planet, full of exotic endemic flora and fauna, and some of the planet’s most beautiful and remote tropical beaches.
