Costa Rica Vacation Rentals
Costa Rica is an ideal vacation rental site for anyone interested in adventure travel and living life on the edge. Between the abundant surfing spots, the raging rivers, and the endless native wildlife population, there are many opportunities for the active traveler. With temperate rainforests, famous beaches, active volcanoes, high mountain areas, and marshy lowlands all found within the same country, just about any activity you can dream of is ready and waiting for you on your Costa Rica vacation rental.
Costa Rica has long been known for being a world-class surfing spot, but that’s not all the Central American country has to offer. The whitewater rafting and kayaking opportunities are steadily growing a strong reputation across the world. Try taming the rapids of the Pacuare River or Rio Reventazon. The Sarapiqui Valley area also has some of the world’s best whitewater rafting.
With the one of the greatest density of species in the world, even just strolling around Costa Rica could be an adventure. You might encounter the very endangered Red-Backed Squirrel Monkey peeking at you from a tree. Or you may spy a Three-toed sloth, howler monkeys, tapir, wild cat, an endangered green turtle, or a spider monkey. Flower lovers should be on the lookout for the rare orchids found around Costa Rica as well.
Hike up to the highest point in Costa Rica, Cerro Chirripó for a birds’ eye view of the lush, green country. Then take a zip line tour across the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve – the cooler temperatures there make for lots of rare species! Perhaps you’ll be lucky enough to catch one of the frequent eruptions of the Arenal Volcano – this volcano is active almost daily and heats the nearby Tabacon hot springs.
Even if you don’t like to live life on the edge of your seat, there’s plenty of relaxing things to see and do during your Costa Rica vacation rental. If you stop by the country’s Bufferfly Farm in San Jose, home to hundreds of butterflies, be sure and go in the morning when the butterflies are busiest. And come visit Guyabo National Monument – history buffs will appreciate this important archaeological site where digs have revealed retaining walls, aqueducts, bridges, and roads. And coastal fishing fans will appreciate the abundant big tarpon, big snook, marlin, sailfish, and tuna to be caught in Costa Rica.
So from Lake Arenal, the largest lake in Costa Rica, to the natural hot springs of Quesada, you will be sure to find endless excitement to suit your needs during your Costa Rica vacation rental.
