Is This Trip Right for You?
Tropical climate year round makes Costa Rica an ideal location for your moderate to activity-filled holiday, which may include zip lining, hiking, swimming, sailing, wildlife viewing, beaches, hot springs, volcanoes and so much more. Accommodations suit the natural, biodiverse environment. Clean, comfortable lodges in regional colors and décor may have fan-cooled rooms or air-conditioning, depending upon location. Specifically, some hotels in Monteverde are built in the traditional local style and have no air-conditioning which may be uncomfortable during heat waves. Road travel will be picturesque and allow you to experience the uniquely “Costa Rican massage” of often unpaved, pot-holed roads providing the only access between cities. Expect uneven surfaces, stairs, steps and significant slopes.
