Because its such a small country in Central America with only 51100 square kilometers, you may wonder if there are many things to do in Costa Rica at all? Well, the answer to that question is a resounding YES. This small country is one enormous playground full of unique Costa Rican Adventures.
A heaven for adventure tours, a learning center for eco-tourism in Costa Rica and a relaxing oasis all surrounded by peaceful nature.
However, if you would like to experience the powerful side of nature, there are many Volcanoes in Costa Rica also. Some are active and some are dormant. Either way there are tours available to visit the craters, lagoons, hot springs and thermal rivers that these colossal mountains have created.
Being in the center of the continent, Costa Rica has access to the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, it is full of rivers that run down the mountains looking for the sea, opening roads through forests and jungles. These Rivers are where you will find some of the best kayaking and white water rafting in costa rica and probably even in central America.
Activities in costa rica are available for individual travelers, families, groups and even honeymooners looking for romantic places to be alone.
Probably the most favorite tour of all involves swinging through the trees. Yes, that’s right, the canopy in Costa Rica has become the most popular and can now be found literally everywhere.
Specialized tours are also available, like costa rica bird watching for example.
The National Parks and biological reserves cover almost 1/3 of the national territory. All protected areas where the wild animals in Costa Rica, monkeys, parrots, sloths, raccoons, jaguars etc. can live in peace without fear of future development.
