COSTA RICA TOURS
"Costa Rica continues to be the southern belle of the
ball, winning the Recommend Readers' Choice Award
for the best destination in Latin America, as well as
top placement as Latin America's Sexiest Romance/
Honeymoon Destination. These awards reflect Costa
Rica's continuing popularity with travelers based on
the country's well-known charms, which range from
a grand natural heritage of rainforests and cloud forests
that rise between the Pacific and Caribbean coasts, to
a host of sporting adventures - from hiking, mountain
biking, and surfing to fishing, river rafting, canopy
touring, birdwatching and wildlife viewing."
