Tucked away in the northeastern part of Costa Rica, Tortuguero National Park (one of the key highlights of Costa Rica), and possibly one of the finest national parks of the country, is an ecological treasure-trove luring nature-seekers around the globe with its unadulterated elements and exotic wildlife.
One of the many reasons why Costa Rica is witnessing a high footfall of visitors in recent years is due to its abundance of outstanding beaches. Squeezed between the Caribbean and Pacific shorelines, the country has nearly 300 sand-and-sea wonders with unique personalities. From mega resorts with lots of amenities to wild, untouched shorelines, there is something for every beach lover.
With all its lush rainforests and picture-perfect beaches, the considerable culinary scene of Costa Rica often gets overlooked. Costa Rican cuisine is not about tacos, quesadillas, and burritos, like its Latin American cousins, but is a perfect blend of comforting, healthy food with a heavy influence of rice and beans. With Latin and Caribbean flavor-bursting fare, this is a sensory experience your taste buds will remember for a long time.
