There are very few places in the world that can offer such an incredible diversity of scenery, climate, and vacation pleasures as Costa Rica; especially when you realize that it is only 150 miles wide, from ocean to ocean, and 250 miles long from border to border.
In an area the size of the state of West Virginia, this land of wonders offers experiences for all the senses! There is the soothing effect of the sun’s rays on a white sand tropical beach, the excitement of watching volcanoes erupt, the thrill of deep sea scuba diving, sport fishing (fishing seasons), white water rafting, mountain biking and bungee jumping. You can relax in the quiet, peaceful serenity of the mountain resorts, where cooler temperatures offset the heat of the coastal areas and fireplaces provide the right atmosphere for a hot chocolate, an intimate Swiss-fondue dinner or the awesome presence of the quetzal, one of the most beautiful birds in the world… and much, much more!
This country has something appealing to every kind of person looking for an ideal vacation destination. The friendliness of the Costa Rican people, one of the highest-literacy nations in the world, make the foreign traveler feel very comfortable and at ease. City-oriented people will find the capital city, San Jose, a perfect place for strolling, people-watching, dining out, gambling in south of France style casinos, or enjoying an opera or ballet performance at the opera house. At the other extreme, adventure-oriented travelers will find opportunities to hike through one of the many National Parks and Reserves that literally cover the country from north to south and east to west, surf some of the best waves in the world, or dive deep into the ocean to come across hammerhead sharks and manta rays.
We can assure you that a vacation in Costa Rica will become one of the most memorable times of your life! Andavo Travel 866-327-7600
