Alesia and Amy recently visited Costa Rica to meet with our local partners and experience the destination.
What we loved the most about Costa Rica is the diversity; each area you visit offers something beautiful and unique. Visiting Costa Rica was a wonderful experience, and we were already planning our next trip before we had even left.

Whether you’re looking to go snorkeling and then relax on a beach, or hike up a volcano and zipline through the cloud forest, there are plenty of options in Costa Rica to suit all tastes. It is a major destination for surfing and sport fishing, but there are also gorgeous rainforest spas and coffee farms which are perfect for a day trip. Not to mention Costa Rica has incredible national parks, where you can see monkeys, sloths, toucans, and macaws living freely in their natural habitat, so nature lovers will feel right at home there.

What not to miss

Manuel Antonio National Park

Manuel Antonio National Park is fantastic for seeing the native wildlife of Costa Rica, and includes a beautiful beach that is part of a marine reserve. Our concierge team can arrange a private guide to show you the best the park has to offer.

Monteverde Rainforest

The Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Reserve has been fiercely protecting one of the most endangered ecosystems on earth. This is a must-visit when traveling to Costa Rica, and the perfect place to reconnect with nature. Ziplining through the cloud forest is an incredibly exhilarating and unique experience.

La Fortuna waterfall

There are many beautiful waterfalls in Costa Rica, but if you only have time to visit one then we recommend La Fortuna. Located within a biological reserve, after a short hike through the forest you’re rewarded with a stunning vantage point of the falls. Go for a refreshing swim through the clear waters.

Where to eat

Bamboo Sushi Club

Bamboo Sushi Club in Tamarindo sits right across the beach and is a great spot for lunch or dinner in town. They serve fresh and high quality Nikkei, creative rolls, poke bowls and delicious cocktails. The zen-garden atmosphere and warm service make this place extra special.

La Parcela

La Parcela in Dominical offers fantastic local seafood, with a beautiful ocean view. If you dine at sunset, you may be treated to a brief visit from the howler monkeys who peek over the rooftop to say hello. Get a drink from their bar and walk down the promenade for one of the best sunset views on the coast.

Visit a ‘Soda’

Located throughout the country, Sodas are family-style restaurants that offer traditional local food. If it’s on the menu, make sure to try ‘vino de coyol’, which is an alcoholic beverage made from the fermented juice of coyol palms, or Agua de Tamarindo which is a sweet drink made from fresh tamarind fruit.
