Caravan’s Costa Rica Attractions

Below is an outline of some of our Costa Rica itinerary attractions that should absolutely not be missed. These are included in our Caravan all inclusive Costa Rica travel package.

San Jose Costa Rica

The capital San Jose is the first stop on our Costa Rica itinerary. Costa Rica is a democratic country that enjoys a peaceful existence with a lifestyle that ranks near the top as one of the best places in the world to live. There are two international airports near San Jose Costa Rica and about 19 other regional airports conveniently located around the country.

San Jose is an important starting point for many Costa Rica travel packages. It is a vibrant colonial city with intertwined modernity and its own exotic charm. Attractions in San Jose Costa Rica include The National Museum, mysterious stone spheres from ancient times, the Gold Museum, the National Theater, Central Park, and the San Jose Plaza de la Cultura.

Volcanoes & Cloud Forests

Driving through the coffee growing region of Costa Rica takes you to Poás Volcano where tourists come to view the spellbinding mile wide crater from a safe distance. Another interesting area close by is the Escallonia Cloud Forest Trail with numerous orchids, rare ferns, epiphytes, and lovely hummingbirds. These two top tourist draws are included in our Caravan Costa Rica itinerary.

Costa Rica National Parks & Plantations

Banana plantations, butterfly gardens, and cascading waterfalls are usually featured on many Costa Rica package holidays. Braulio Carrillo Park and Leatherback Turtle National Park are home to some of the more exotic Costa Rica wildlife species including birds, otters, manatees, and sea turtles. There are many rivers and canals to cruise on or to engage in adventure sports such as white water rafting.

Taking a scenic look at the rainforest while on an aerial tram, and gliding through the jungle canopy is one attraction you will never forget. Generally, rainforests have more rain and a cloud forest has more humidity. Howler monkeys, white faced monkeys and green iguanas join the tropical exotic rare birds in these unique jungles.

Turtle Nesting Beaches & Research Station

This part of our Costa Rica itinerary is where you can see nature at its finest. Costa Rica travel packages generally include the Pacific coast Leatherback turtle nesting beaches at Leatherback Turtle National Park.

Here, Ii’s possible to see other turtle species including black turtles, Hawksbill turtles, and of course, the Giant Leatherbacks. You can also explore firsthand, the turtle nesting beaches and natural habitats where sea turtles come to lay their eggs.

Leatherback Turtle National Park was created to help protect the nesting beaches, turtle eggs, and the young hatchlings that race to the ocean.

Arenal Volcano, Cano Negro & Volcanic Hot Springs

These are additional Costa Rica itinerary favorites on Caravan’s all inclusive tour. Take a river cruise along the Rio Frio, which will take you to the Cano Negro Wildlife Refuge, home to migratory birds, crocodiles, caimans, spider monkeys, web footed water walking lizards, and a host of other rare tropical animal species. You can relax at the volcanic hot springs and enjoy the view of the Arenal Volcano and its glowing lava flow, which is sure to be a most memorable experience for any visitor.

Costa Rica Beaches

Beautiful Manuel Antonio public beach is just one example of the many white sandy Costa Rica beaches revered by beach lovers. Some leisurely time on the pristine beaches of the Costa Rica’s Pacific coast is another favorite of tourists who enjoy all inclusive Costa Rica travel packages with Caravan Tours.

The name Costa Rica means ‘rich coast’ and the country’s sandy beaches stay true to this even today. Outside of the well-known Costa Rica beaches there are many others more remote, but well worth the time and effort to visit.
