Costa Rica Carry On

If you will be traveling in Costa Rica and intend to fly with Sansa, be aware that they have luggage weight limits so pack light.

Costa Rica - Travelling Independently

When you travel independantly you are immersed in the culture. You get a sense of the real Costa Rica and make a connection with the environment and the people.

There is also an element of unpredictability that adds excitement and adventure to your trip. This doesn't happen while playing golf in a fancy resort.

Guanacaste Province

The beaches of Costa Rica's Pacific northwest coast offer some of the best surfing and sportfishing in the world. Guanacaste is known for its sunny blue skies and perfect climate. Visitors will find many small beach coves along the coast, with privacy and seclusion for the perfect romantic getaways.

Inland from the beaches is the Guanacaste mountain range, with spectacular tropical forests and volcanoes. Vacation activities include hiking and horseback riding, birdwatching and national parks. Many tourists enjoy splashing in hidden waterfalls, touring the rainforest canopy on zip-lines, and relaxing in hot springs at the base of a rumbling volcano.

Hotel accommodations in the region range from luxurious all-inclusive resorts to private mountain cabins.

The new international airport in Liberia has enabled tourists to the Guanacaste region to be within just a short drive of their vacation destination.

Slow Down in Costa Rica

Don't try to see the whole country in a short amount of time. You will run yourself ragged and miss the great feel of Costa Rica.

Where in Costa Rica

If you come to Costa Rica you have to visit the Arenal Volcano. It is one of the most active volcanoes in the world. The hot springs are a must, too.

Monteverde is a bit overrated, and there are a lot of tourists. The cloud forest is still impressive, but if you want to see animals better go to Manuel Antonio. It is easy to spot different kinds of monkeys, slots and birds there.

If you have your own rental car don’t drive by night. There are several potholes in the streets and most of the roads are not lit up. In Costa Rica it gets dark around 6pm.

Traveling from one coast to the other can be time consuming, because you have to go through San Jose.
