With the Caribbean to the east and the Pacific to the west and a climate that is best visited between December to April, Costa Rica an increasingly popular destination for those seeking a little winter sun.
Puerto Viejo de Limon
in the south east on the Caribbean is a cool, bohemian and chilled out location with locally owned hotels that tend to be fairly simple in nature. The actual beaches look beautiful, however the micro climate is tricky to predict and the rip tides mean swimming can, at times of the year, be very dangerous.
in the north west has a variety of large international resorts that come with all the whistles and bells including golf courses, tennis courts, spas.etc. A little further south in Guanacaste you will find small towns and villages with boutique properties.
is ideal for those looking to combine beach with unparalleled levels of wildlife. The lodges are not all beach front, in fact the majority of them are not. But what this location gives it a mix of wildlife with some very quiet and remote beaches to enjoy. A great location to finish your trip.
