The “Gold Coast” or Guanacaste
Costa Rica’s Gold Coast is not only one of the most unique destinations to visit in the country, but also the world. Apart from the surreal and secluded beaches here, the region has sunny savannas with a sprinkle of active volcanoes, contrasting the damp rainforests home to this region. Another important place to visit in the area is the Rincón de la Vieja National Park for its mesmerizing waterfalls and hot springs, along with the Santa Rosa National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site for preserving the site of the 1856 Battle of Santa Rosa.
Costa Rica’s vibrant capital, San José attempts to be the country’s central hub of exploration. In case you want to get back to the city life before traversing the beaches and rainforests, San José is your ideal halt-destination. The most popular tourist attractions here are the Jade Museum and Pre-Columbian Gold Museum, both of which are home to dazzling pre-Columbian artefacts. The only problem here: one needs to be vigilant about their belongings at all times and stay clear of anyone even remotely suspicious-looking in nature.
Costa Rica might not be your idea of a budget friendly location for a family location, but it does have the facilities to make you plan a romantic getaway with just your spouse in tow. So make up your minds and plan your vacation accordingly!
