Costa Rica Vacation, Travel, Hotel & Resort Information

Twenty-five years ago, Costa Rica was hardly a fleeting thought on anyone’s mind. Few had heard of this third-world country with poor roads and standard of living. Retired people were attracted to it because of the low cost of living, but also because of the tax exonerations that were given to retirees that moved here. Costa Rica retirement video – where to live, how get residency and overview of the country.

Now, that has all changed! Yes, there are still stretches of more remote roads that are not paved, but with Intel and other big corporations here, no one considers Costa Rica a backward country anymore, and the service amenities for tourists have also so improved. You will find 5 star hotels / resorts, like the Four Seasons in Guanacaste, and also a thriving medical tourism industry because of the very high standard of available health care. You can find everything here from hip replacements, anti-aging treatments, and the best in cosmetic dental care, all at prices one-third to one-half of what you would expect to pay in the United States.

Costa Rica Vacation Rentals

Costa Rica has come into its own in the last ten years for luxury vacation rental villas and houses. From the lesser known locations like Playa Dominical to the most popular areas, like Manuel Antonio, often vacationers will find more affordable accommodations with a first class vacation rental than a similar hotel.

Another consideration in renting a vacation home is the privacy that it affords the guests. Not everyone wants to visit a resort teaming with activity, noise and planned activities that to some are just distractions. In a luxury villa, you can have the best of both worlds – a private time, or taking tours to nearby destinations. In additions, some villas are located within luxury resorts, and villa guests can use the resort facilities. Whether you are looking for a surfing spot, a quiet time away from it all, or a constant stream of activities, you’ll find that a vacation rental offers all the above, plus privacy, and in most cases, more affordability than hotel or resort rooms.

Costa Rica Hotels & Resorts

Costa Rica has a compliment and full line of just about any kind of hotel or resort that you would like. From 4 room small bungalow / hotels, bed and breakfast types, to the top of the line 4 and 5 star hotels on the beach or near active Arenal Volcano, travelers are sure to find what ever fits their budget and preferences.

Some people prefer the drier Guanacaste area, known as the “Gold Coast” for the many days of sunshine and less rain. Other tourists prefer the southern areas of Dominical and Uvita, or on the Caribbean side, the areas around Puerto Viejo or the Tortuguero National Park. These areas get more rain and are always lush, with wildlife and sea turtles to entertain.

Activities / Things to Do in Costa Rica

One of the more popular activities in Costa Rica now is getting married there! For that, you should have a wedding planner, and Randy Gritz of www.costaricaweddingcelebrations.com has many successful weddings to her credit after the last twelve years.

Then, for activities for your honeymoon, Costa Rica is where the canopy tours were born. Although imitated elsewhere, nothing is better than gliding through the verdant treetops in Costa Rica. A ride for everybody, well maybe not those afraid of heights, but it is sure to please adults and children alike with a sense of adventure. Some zip line tours have gondolas that you can ride in for an extra feeling of security, though not needed, as they are indeed safe. Try Dream Forest Canopy Rides, which is near the most famous park area of Costa Rica – the Manuel Antonio Park. See their video, below. Also, as mentioned above, Manuel Antonio also has some of the best high end vacation rentals available in Costa Rica.

SCUBA diving in Costa Rica is becoming more popular, and one place in particular, Cano Island National Park is a protected SCUBA, serviced by www.canodiverscostarica.com. Being a protected sanctuary, the profusion of sea life is incredible and sure to please. What species are at Cano Island? Rick Lane, your Master Diver, says, “You will encounter both pelagic (open ocean) and reef fish. If you like to see large schools of jacks and barracudas, sting rays and manta rays, and if you like sharks, you will enjoy your dives here. Dive sites range from 10 meters (30 feet) to 40 meters (120 feet), and current ranges from mild to fairly strong.”

Up the Central Pacific coast from Cano Divers, about a 2 hour drive, is a newly remodeled eco-lodge resort with bird watching, butterflies and a 200 acre nature reserve called La Palapa Resort.

A great adventure travel location with lots of tours and things to do, or one can just relax in a hammock outside their confortable bungalows, among the jungle gardens, and read a book.
