Costa Rica! A magical and enchanting world full of exotic animals, beaches, and resorts. A nature lovers dream, as you will be surrounded by a variety of exotic species while relaxing on the loveliest of beaches. Listen to the calls of the monkeys, while sipping on a fruity drink and don’t mind the huge iguanas strolling across the sands. We urge you to do the hikes, swim in the waterfalls, and yes, even feed the monkeys (at the sanctuaries of course!).
1. Visit the Proyecto Asis Sanctuary and Interact with Wildlife
This is the place to give back to the animal community while also, enjoying the animal community. Do the tour and opt to volunteer which includes helping prepare foods and feeding the various animals at the sanctuary.
2. Take A Swim in The La Fortuna Waterfall
The most refreshing way to end your day after a full day of hiking.
3. Explore Cahuita National Park
One of the best National Parks on the planet. The broad path that runs through this park is alongside the beautiful Costa Rican coastline. The thick jungle provides shade and shelter for all kinds of exotic wildlife, and you WILL come into contact with such a variety of them, so you will want to wear pants, as well as boots. Expect to see sloths, monkeys, lizards, butterflies, eyelash vipers, caymans and all types of birds, just to name a few.
4. Hike to the Rio Celeste Waterfall in Tenorio Volcano National Park
The Rio Celeste waterfall is stunning and the water is so blue you won’t believe it until you see it with your own eyes. The Tenorio Volcano National Park should definitely be on your list of places to visit when you are in this area.
5. Relax at Manuel Antonio National Park
Listen to the capuchin monkeys while relaxing on this beach and pay no mind to the iguanas strolling across the beach in plain sight.
6. Enjoy the Surf at Nosaro Beach
The most perfect isolated beach to enjoy the sun, sand and waves.

A beautiful hot spring surrounded by stunning atmosphere. We love this place especially because it is very private and relaxing, the ideal spot for lovers.

White sand, shells and turquoise water, yes, yes and yes! Also, you can get a $20 massage right on the beach, quadruple yes!
