Debi and family spent a wonderful week at Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo a few years ago. Everything – the two beaches, the golf course, dining, pools, kids club, service, rooms – was perfect and truly a dream vacation.

Explore the Jungle

Forest Ziplining

Whether it’s through the evergreen Monteverde Forest with the Arenal Volcano’s view or through the vibrant jungle canopy, ziplining is an excellent activity for any age. It’ll give you an exceptional view that you can’t any other way allowing you to see animals and birds up close and add some more adrenaline to your vacation.

Jungle Tranquility

The natural hot springs with a green background provide geothermal waters heated by the volcano. The springs have been utilized for therapeutic healing in addition to simply relaxing in the tropics.

Jungle Drives

The 4×4 is recommended for the best driving experience throughout Costa Rica. The off-beaten paths present unique views and require vehicles that can beat their own path. Driving on the beach, however, is not permitted. Another exciting way to get around is via horseback, offering a different way to see the views.

Rivers and Water Inland

Surfing

Towns such as Samara, Avellanas, and Tamarindo are great places for year-round surfing on these Pacific and Caribbean coasts. The warm water and steady wind combo make Costa Rica a surfing paradise. Many of the beaches offer boards and lessons for beginners. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, you’re bound to catch a gnarly wave in Costa Rica. 

Waterfall

La Fortuna waterfall by Arenal is an approximated 20-minute hike presenting a massive waterfall with a jungle backdrop. Another favorite is located in Tenorio Volcano National Park in the Northern Plains, offering bright blue waters. Lesser-known waterfalls include Bajos del Tori in the Alajuela province and Catarata del Toro, which plummets into an extinct volcanic crater and delivers breathtaking views.

Rio Rafting

Named as a Biosphere Reserve, Rio Pacuare offers a white-water Caribbean experience through the safari-like jungle. According to National Geographic, it is one of the top spots for white-water rafting. While rafting in the Rio Savegre, you can encounter jaguars, tapirs, and birds that pass by the riverside.

Wildlife and Wellness

Yoga Retreats

Aside from the adventurous and bold activities offered in Costa Rica, yoga retreats are available for those looking to relax and rejuvenate in the peaceful surrounding. Nosara is a spot located in the Nicoya Peninsula, offering a stunning beachfront area for a serene yoga session.

Wildlife

Nearly 25% of the country consists of national parks and wildlife. It is home to 27 national parks, making up 5% percent of the world’s biodiversity. The Los Quetzales National Park allows birdwatchers to get a view of the various species of birds. You’ll most likely encounter a monkey or a sloth dangling on the branches. The Corcovado National Park is another prominent place where you will likely encounter countless whales and dolphin sightings.
