Why Everyone's Choosing Costa Rica

Categories: Costa Rica Tags: Costa Rica
Costa Rica is quickly becoming the destination of 2016, with its popularity through the roof and an increase in supply of direct flights to meet increasing demand being announced this week by British Airways and Thomson Airways. So what's all the fuss about? Surely this enthusiasm isn't a late reaction to a glistening World Cup campaign? No, here's why...

Firstly, looking at it geographically, Costa Rica is in a most favourable position. Nestled in Central America, it is one of only a few countries to have coastlines on both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea - the best of both worlds. This also, predictably, means that Costa Rica enjoys sunshine throughout the year.

This makes it perfect to visit the vast landscape and diverse climate that exists here. Home to broad rainforests, peaceful beaches, plains, mountains and more there's always something new to be seen. Witness the remarkable wildlife that call this land home and can seldom be found anywhere else. 

rio celeste

Bare witness to the breathtaking Rio Celeste, with unbelievably blue waters making it a famous attraction in the northern reaches of the country. Situated within the Tenorio Volcano National Park, the river runs past the park's trails which also takes you past thermal geysers, bubbling mud pots, and hot springs making the park a prime example of the varied nature on show in the country as a whole.

Alternatively, a trip to Monteverde a bit further south will reap a thoroughly rewarding visit to the biodiverse Monterverde Cloud Forest, the most famous of it's kind in the world and a vitally important part of local conservation efforts for plants and animals alike.

Trek around the country and you'll also be rewarded with a selection of secluded beaches to enjoy a more traditional break in the sun with the sand and sea in perfect tandem. This is also where you'll find incredible watersport opportunities to partake in, from premier surfing, to snorkelling in crystal clear waters and perfect conditions.

Moreover, you can have yet more incredible experiences watching baby turtles hatch and begin their journey towards the deep blue sea, or even spend time with the welcoming locals and sample some of their freshly made coffee, with a taste to rival that of the rest of Central America. Even if you were to disagree, San Jose is set to become Central America's low-cost travel capital, meaning the area could open up to tourists like never before.

Oh, and did we mention that it's the happiest country in the world? No? Well, it is.
