With its tropical wildlife and outdoor adventures, Costa Rica is a traveler’s paradise. Whether you’re interested in discovering a diverse fauna with big cats, curious birds and colorful fish or want to dive into the rainforest flora, the Central American region offers visitors an outstanding glimpse on nature.
While the city of San Jose might provide a big contrast to its green surroundings, the cultural and political capital is well worth exploring. Between grey buildings and a hectic urban life, you will find a number of art galleries, historic monuments and market areas that make your visit unforgettable.
However, if you feel the need to get out of the city, San Jose gives you easy access to beaches, mountain hikes and national parks nearby.
