Costa Rica vacation tour packages: Discover the best places to visit!

Written by Isabella Anderson

Poas Volcano in Costa Rica.

There are few countries in the world that offer so much in such a little space. There are two oceans, an array of volcanoes, dozens of different micro climates, beautiful rivers, lakes, and some of the greatest diversity of flora and fauna. Saying there is a lot do is an understatement, but within just 14 days you can discover sights that will dazzle your eyes.

Even though Costa Rica is a small Central American country, with a covering territory of only 51 100 square kilometers, it has too much miles to explore, and we are not going to say that there is a minimum of required days to explore, but depending on your desires, it could take longer.

The goal of a trip, is that you maximize your time in the country, so you know at least something about culture, attractions, taste the typical Costa Rica food and more.

Touristic Places in Costa Rica

Here you have ideas of the best places to visit while vacationing in the country.
