Costa Rica Beaches

Costa Rica offers many Vacation Rentals and vacation homes for rent. Most visitors to Costa Rica fall in love with this beautiful country and its friendly people. Lets face it, from idyllic tropical beaches, verdant mountains where the climate is always spring-like, to tropical rain forests with abundant flora and fauna, there is a lot to love. For some people the main attraction is the world class sport fishing. For others it is the numerous national parks and/or the numerous species of birds found here. Maybe its just the ideal climate and the slower pace of life.

The beaches along Guanacaste's shore - Hermosa, El Coco, Flamingo, Tamarindo, and Nosara are some of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. With a drier, more arid climate than other parts of the country, this area offers a wealth of water sports; surfing, world-class sportfishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, etc.

The Pacuare (pah KWAH ray) is the quintessential tropical river. Along its course lie several densely vegetated gorges which shelter jaguars, ocelots, monkeys, sloths, and an incredible variety of birds. Also found within these gorges is some of the best whitewater in all of Central America, ranging up to Class V in difficulty. The Pacuare is the only river in Costa Rica which contains these amenities, including virgin rain forest, while also being quite accessible. The lowland tropical forest here is remarkable for its luxuriant variety and the amazing abundance and diversity of wildlife found within it.
