Cadogan's expert author uncovers a wealth of memorable experiences in this fascinating and biodiverse country.
With this guide, explore bustling cities, trek up volcanoes, raft down rivers, snorkel among coral reefs and laze on palm-fringed beaches. Live it up in surf towns and go hiking and riding in national parks to seek mythic quetzals, elusive cats, howling monkeys and nesting turtles.
Bathe in natural volcanic hot springs, take an aerial tram through the rainforest, windsurf in the shadow of a volcano or fish for marlin in the open seas.
Marvel at Pre-Columbian gold and the many colors of jade in the museums of San Jose, then seek out local handicrafts at markets and indigenous reserves.
Savor slow-cooked coconut fish stew rondon, dine in a converted bomber plane on the edge of the sea, or grab a simple casado at a street-corner soda.
Sleep in one of hundreds of specially chosen places to stay-in a rainforest lodge, in a Quaker hostel or on a coffee plantation.
Dance the night away in the bars of El Coco and Jaco, or live it up Tico-style at carnival or cowboy festival...
