About Costa Rica

Costa Rica is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. With delicious food, exotic wildlife, and gorgeous scenery, your family is sure to have a fantastic vacation in this Central American country. Choose from Costa Rica vacation rentals right on the beach or those with more privacy hidden in the rainforest for an unforgettable stay. 


Flying is the best way to get around Costa Rica. Because it’s a small country, flights between regions are inexpensive and quick. The most popular months for tourism are from November to April, so be sure to book your flights in advance to save time and money. Rental cars are also available, but driving conditions may be less than ideal. Taxis and buses are also available and are an affordable way to explore the area. 


Visitors interested in Costa Rica vacation rentals will want to know the most popular areas of the country before planning their stay. Here are a few of the country’s must-see regions:

  • Caribbean Coast: If you’re looking for quiet beaches, inexpensive seafood, and beautiful wildlife, the Caribbean Coast should be at the top of your list.
  • Pacific Coast: This region includes Guanacaste, which is home to activities like fishing, surfing, horseback riding, and volcano tours. The Nicoya Peninsula is another popular spot on the Pacific Coast.
  • Central Pacific: The Central Pacific region is a favorite among tourists as it boasts stretches of beautiful beaches, national parks, coffee plantations, mountains, and small villages. Every visitor is sure to find something to enjoy here.
  • Central Valley: This part of Costa Rica covers the area from San Ramon of Alajuela to Paraiso of Cartago (west to east). More than half of the population of Costa Rica resides in the Central Valley, and it is the economic hub of the country.

The rainy season spans the months of May until November, but temperatures remain comfortably in the 70s and 80s.
