1. Beaches

Both the Caribbean and Pacific sides of Costa Rica boast some of the world's best beaches. Some are national parks (such as Manuel Antonio and Cocos Island); some are beautiful, but they are all beautiful. Costa Rica beaches: surfing, snorkelling, scuba-diving, boating, enjoying a picnic with your family or just simply walking on the beach.

2. Volcanoes

There are more than 112 volcanoes in Costa Rica. Arenal's peak is the highest at 5,360 feet. Arenal and four others, Rincón de la Vieja, Irazu, Orosi and Poas, are currently active and another 62 volcanoes that are currently dormant could become active once again. Each volcano offers incredible views both from that vantage point and towards the volcano itself. That natural beauty alone makes volcanoes big draws for a visit to Costa Rica. In addition, each volcano includes distinct surprises. For example, Irazu has a crater lake with gorgeous clear turquoise water. It is simply breathtaking and worthy of being called an once-in-a-lifetime experience. Poas also has a crater - this a boiling acid lake - equally breathtaking and beautiful in a completely different way. Finally, the volcanoes in Costa Rica make their own weather, explaining why this small country features 37 different climate zones. Each volcano makes for a unique and memorable experience.

3. Bio-Diversity

Zip lines, white water rafting, whale watching, hiking. How about bird watching, horseback riding, swimming, snorkeling, surfing, boating, sailing, kayaking, fishing? If you can add an "ing" to the end of a word and it is fun or exciting, it is available to you in Costa Rica.

5. Pura Vida!

With every trip to Costa Rica, I am reminded that Ticos are by the kindest and happiest people I have ever met in my travels around the world. This is probably one of the reasons why they live the longest as a group of people. To say they do not get all wound up about things that folks in other cultures do is an understatement. The Tico population is 98% literate and, from my experience, they are some of the most intelligent and intuitive people I've ever met. Most understand that their country is jewel unlike any other. And they are happy to share with people who have an eco-friendly approach to travel. Pura Vida - the best way of life!

6. National Parks and Reserves

Costa Rica boasts 26 of these natural areas, which together account for more than 25% of the total landmass in Costa Rica. From the smallest, Manuel Antonio, to the largest, La Amistad, each is unique with its own biodiversity that requires it to be set aside and not destroyed by developers. Most have camping and backpacking areas or trails; most of the time; only a few do not. All have birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, plants of every kind (many with healing properties), trees including the Guanacaste and Sura, many different types of mangrove forests, dry rainforests, wet rainforests, and cloud forests. 7. The Food!
