A world leader in holidays linked to the natural world, though in no way lacking sunny beaches for a lazy vacation, Costa Rica has a developed tourism sector that, at the same time, preserves its natural reserves carefully.
Major Tourism Attractions
There is the Arenal Volcano, the hot springs at Tabacon, watching the turtles at Tortuguero National Park and many other protected spaces.
Costa Rica Money
The Costa Rican colón is the unit of currency.
Language of Costa Rica
The language spoken in the country is Spanish.
Capital of Costa Rica
The capital is San Jose. It does not have a great deal to see, but San Jose does have the Pre-Colombian Gold Museum.
Best Times to Visit Costa Rica
The dry season is from December to April in much of the country, but prices rise at this time too. May to November is sunny too and the rain that falls tends to pass quickly, so don’t rule out going at that time.
Other Tourist Attractions
The country is rightly famous for its surfing, though, in general, it really caters for outdoor sports such as paddle boards, zip lining, mountain biking, sport fishing and white water rafting. Or you can just explore the wonderful nature.
