Places to Visit in Costa Rica

Costa Rica's incredible biodiversity and variable climate offers a multitude of travel destinations to explore and enjoy. With so much to see, deciding where to go can often be the hardest part of your trip planning process. Often, a good first step is to choose one or two destinations, and then complementary locations can be found based on time constraints, proximity, and interest. Many travelers choose three or four destinations to visit in a 7-10 day period. One of the reasons Costa Rica is such an exciting country to visit is that it affords visitors the opportunity to see multiple locations and habitats on a single vacation.
