Non-surfers can still expect to have a great time by the water. If you prefer to just kickback and relax, there’s plenty of that going on, the beaches along our coastline are some of the most beautiful beaches in the entire country. Vast and almost always bathed in sunshine, the beaches offer an endless amount of coves and pristine shorelines that are only just a short drive away from each other. Some are just quaint small fishing villages and some are hopping with an abundance of stores and restaurants.
The climate along the coast has allowed for vast expanses of tropical dry forests full of mystery. These forests often line the beaches and are host to a whole range of animals including various exotic birds, iguanas and monkeys. Sometimes hundreds of leatherback turtles come ashore to lay their eggs, a sight surely not to be missed.
There are also hiking trails for those more willing to get into the forest areas, this will ensure you see some of the exotic wildlife if you hadn’t already. Expect to see a wide variety of monkeys, anteaters, maybe even some frogs! There are also zipline and horseback riding tours going through the rainforest for the more energized travelers.
With a reef also along our shore, it is the perfect spot to go snorkeling or scuba diving scuba diving tours. With plenty of exotic and colorful marine life to encounter, it goes without saying that Costa Rica offers some of the finest underwater exploring in the world.
