Costa Rica is a land of emerald green cloud forests, glistening azure waters and soaring volcanic peaks. The country is a haven for travelers no matter what they want to get from their vacation. Adventurous travelers can take advantage of the hiking, snorkeling and wildlife spotting opportunities which are abound in Costa Rica while zip-lining through the cloud forest. Those looking to unwind can take in the miles and miles of golden sand beaches on both the Caribbean and Pacific coasts. Costa Rica is perhaps one of the only destinations in the world where you can explore the jungle rivers one day, visit one of the many volcanoes the next before relaxing on a white sandy beach backed by swaying palm trees.
