Costa Rica is for everyone, from eco-tourists looking for adventure to couples desiring a romantic beach vacation. Get up close and personal with magnificent waterfalls in stunning rain forests. Walk across hanging bridges thru jungles with volcanoes in the background or swim in the warm waters of the Pacific. Beauty, adventure and relaxation are there for you to sample.
There are very few destinations in the world that offer excellent all inclusive beach resorts and a number of exciting adventure tours than Costa Rica. The wonderful beaches are great for relaxing or water sports. The resorts in Costa Rica offer a variety of these choices and several other activities. In addition, there are many different restaurants to enjoy as well.
There are three main areas to visit–you can combine them or just pick one.
The capital city is both one of the most cosmopolitan and vibrant cities in all of Central America. It’s a great place to use as your base for day trips to rainforests, raging rivers and national parks. It also has its own attractions along with gourmet restaurants and a lively night life.
Located in the northern part of the country, this is eco-tourist heaven. With access to the rainforest, volcano, waterfalls and the country’s largest lake it is the adventure capital of Costa Rica.
This is where you go to relax. Located in the Northwest on the Pacific Ocean this area features a drier climate than the rest of the country. There are many beautiful all inclusive resorts right on the beach which will cater to all your needs. If you don’t want to stay on the beach all day there are many eco-type activities.
We offer both escorted and independent tours that will fit your needs and budget. What makes Costa Rica so special are the full-day optional tours that allow you to really see the country. Besides fishing, zip lining and white water rafting, some of the most popular tours are excursions to Rincon de la Vieja National Park, Arenal Volcano, Palo Verde National Park and the rain forests. So, if it’s adventure and pampering you seek, call Shadyside Travel for your Costa Rica vacation.
