Costa Rica is known for its beautiful nature. Every year, we receive approximately, 1.7 million tourists looking to leave behind their hectic lives and become one with nature, at least for a few days, or weeks.
Costa Rican Adventures You Don’t Want to Miss Out On
Beyond our beautiful, relaxing beaches, Costa Rica is also the perfect place for adventures. If you’re a thrill-seeker, this the right place for you. Here are 5 adventures you must experience while in Costa Rica:
Caño Island Scuba Diving
This amazing dive destination in Costa Rica has been deemed the most beautiful one on the Pacific coast. Go underwater to witness the stunning coral reefs and find rich marine wildlife, such as sea turtles, sting rays, barracuda, moray eels, and the occasional sharks and dolphins.
Rafting in Pacuare River
White water rafting in Pacuare River in Costa Rica is a must-have adventure that will become a life-long memory. This is one of the best rivers in the world for white water rafting, surrounded by beautiful nature and wildlife.
Hiking the tallest mountain in Costa Rica certainly qualifies as adventure. At 12,533 feet above sea level, Chirripó is the perfect place to visit if you love a good hike. You’ll find cloud forests and a type of ecosystem that is unique to high elevations in the tropics, known as páaramos, along the way. A wonderful hike that can be done in a day —if you’re an incredible hiker— or take your time and do it in two to three days.
Zipline and Surf in Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa beach, located on the Nicoya Peninsula on the Pacific Coast, is mainly known for being an amazing place to surf. That alone is good news but there’s more. Adrenaline kicks in on a zipline/canopy tour, as you take in all the beauty of the tropical forest.
Arenal Hanging Bridges
This thrilling outdoor adventure will give you the best views of Arenal Volcano, one of Costa Rica’s natural wonders. Go deep into the forest as you travel through 16 bridges on this canopy tour.
