Costa Rica in the best beaches in the world 2019

The World’s best beaches for 2019 were listed in the Central America and the Caribbean’s Top 50 Beaches of FlightNetwork, and the list was released last week. To create this ranking, they collected insight from over 1200 people: bloggers, journalists, editors, and agencies who know all things related to travel and tourism.

All the commentaries and feedback provided with their opinion and experiences ensured this list which will lead the visitors to the shores of some of the best beaches in the world and you will be dreaming of visiting these places.

These fifty positions are occupied by different destinations in Central America and the Caribbean region, and in the case of Costa Rica, four of our best beach getaways were selected to be part of this prestigious ranking.

Manuel Antonio beach in Quepos, in the Central Pacific side of Costa Rica, occupied the eighth position of the 50 best beaches in the world. Characteristics such as the combination of the forest with the sea and sand, and the possibility of doing a lot of activities while vacationing there were the main reasons to select this spot as a perfect beach vacation destination.  

Punta Uva beach, located in the Limon province, appears in the 35th position thanks to its scenic beauty and the calm vibe of the place. Conchal beach, in the famous region of Guanacaste, features the 37th position due to its characteristic sand, the wonderful landscapes and the high-quality services of the area. The last of the Costa Rican beaches in the rank is Sombrero beach, in Puntarenas, which has the position number 49.

This means a lot to the country as tourism is its largest source of income and with this publication, many potential visitors may be interested in knowing these famous places and plan their next vacation in Costa Rica.
