Costa Rica Things to See and Do

follow us

A easier task than answering the question "what are some things to do in Costa Rica?" would be to compose a list of things you cannot do in this country. The “rich coast’s” international reputation as one of the best countries to explore in Latin America comes from its bounty of natural resources; mile upon mile of pristine beaches facing both the Atlantic and Pacific, lush rain forests, wild rivers and even wilder animals ranging from jaguars to the most elusive butterflies. Hiking, birdwatching, and bungee jumping are just a few things to do. In Costa Rica, there really is a limitless array of adventure and volunteer options, not to mention urban adventures in its pleasant coastal cities. See below for a more comprehensive list of things to do in Costa Rica.
