Located in the fertile northern lowlands of Costa Rica, Arenal Volcano National Park, one of Costa Rica's premier highlights, spearheads the country's tourism scene by offering an abundance of thrill-junkie adventure activities and the stuff of dreams for even the casual sightseer.
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.
Costa Rica is all about natural beauty; it is home to lush rainforests, wildlife parks, picturesque tropical beaches and dramatic smoking volcanoes. With so much to do and see, this Central American nation attracts travelers of all kinds, from the luxury-focused to the surfers and backpackers.
Home to gigantic volcanic peaks, wondrous sea cliffs, sweeping black beaches and sensational basalt columns, Snaefellsnes is also known as an "Iceland in Miniature". Spanning around 100 km in length, a visit to the fascinating landscape of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula is merely a 2-hour drive from the capital city of Reykjavik, making it as an ideal destination for a day trip.
Recognized as Ecuador’s topmost mainland ecological reserve, Cotopaxi National Park is second only to the Galapagos in terms of annual visitors. Spanning a massive stretch of 33,400 hectares, the park boasts one of the most picturesque volcanoes of the continent, the eponymous Cotopaxi Volcano, along with two other gigantic peaks.
