Fidgety after just one morning on the beach? Help is around the corner. Zip lines and canopy walkways stretched high above the forests, white-water rafting, hiking, surfing on Pacific roller, riding and ranching - Costa Rica is a huge adventure playground with plentiful wildlife, impressive scenery, dramatic volcanoes and lovely beaches. Costa Rica is peaceful and well organised (it is often called the Switzerland of Latin America). It has no army, educational and health standards are relatively high, and English is widely spoken. Distances are short, there are many well-kept small hotels and guesthouses, and there is a warm welcome everywhere.

Best time to go: Costa Rica is in the tropics, so temperatures are fairly constant all year round, just varying with altitude. It has two seasons.

The Central Pacific has the closest beaches from San José. They enjoy the characteristics of a very hot and humid climate, with a season of brilliant sunshine from December through the end of April and warm waters all year long. Hills covered with green forests compose the common landscape of the area. Some of the features which have made Manuel Antonio one of the places most preferred by tourists are white sand beaches, cliffs, rivers, rainforests, the large variety of animal life and climate. Manuel Antonio National Park is home of the White Faced, Mantled Howler and Red‐backed Squirrel monkeys, Two and Three Toad sloths, among other mammals, as well as a number of species of birds.
