Back in the 1970’s and 1980’s the beaches of “Playa Jaco” and “Puntarenas” were pretty much the only 2 coastal areas with a fairly “easy access” from San Jose, which made them popular between the local tourists. Then in the 1990’s the touristic boom started in Costa Rica, and due to the fact that the foreign visitors wanted to see more than Jaco and Puntarenas, other areas started developing with a good touristic platform.

To put it in simple terms, we are all full of life here, and the best proof of that is that we got the award of being the happiest country in the whole wide world in 2010 and 2011, but the other years when we don’t end up in first place, we are normally in the top 5, which is not bad at all…

As today, Miravalles is one of the Costa Rica’s volcanoes that show most activity; mainly fumaroles, mud pots and other minor activity. There is actually a touristic attraction at the bottom of the mountain where we take our customers to see this volcanic activity, be able to touch it and even take a volcanic mud bath!

The Tirimbina Biological Reserve, located in the area called “Sarapiqui”, is one of our favorite places to take our customers because of several reasons. Even though Sarapiqui is not one of those touristic attractions that one would see all over the internet, it is a very good place to see the real-not so touristy Costa Rica, because the reserve is close to the village of “La Virgen de Sarapiqui”, a very small town with hardly any tourism there. The reserve itself is a non-profit organization that invests all of the funds they generate in scientific research mainly in mammals, bats and butterflies. That’s another reason we like to take our customers there, because we are actually taking our visitors to a very beautiful rainforest that we know they will like and at the same time, we are contributing with science studies; that’s what we would call in Costa Rica “killing 2 birds with one stone”.

Turrialba Volcano is Costa Rica’s most active volcano, located in the Central Volcanic Mountain Range. Its altitude is 3,340 meters above the sea level (10,958 feet), and it has a total of 3 craters at the summit. It was dormant from 1,866 until 2,010, but just a couple of weeks ago Turrialba Volcano started important activity, doing stronger phreatic eruptions, throwing ash, rocks and small amounts of lava. The Turrialba Volcano National Park remains closed due to the latest heavy ash activity, but all tourism businesses are still operating normally (except for Volcan Turrialba Lodge, located at only 1 kilometer from the crater), since the eruptions don’t represent a dangerous threat at the moment, mainly because the wind blows all the ash towards the west, while the touristic activities are towards the east flank of the volcano.

Whitewater rafting

Whitewater rafting is one of Costa Rica’s most popular adventure activities. We highly recommend for you to include a rafting trip during your vacation in Costa Rica, because regardless of your level of experience, there would be a tour suitable for you (even floating trips for those who are physically challenged).  The country has the advantage of having many mountain ranges, from which several rivers flow down, creating lots of opportunities for practicing the sport. Another advantage is that Costa Rica is located in the tropics, therefore the water is always warm and the views are amazing on some of the trips, with views of lush rainforests, canyons and even wildlife.

Costa Rica Vacations, why should I choose this destination?

As time goes by as I work here at Go Tours Costa Rica, I constantly find myself wondering what would it feel like to be from another country trying to find a good destination for a well-deserved vacation, in the best scenario, I would make tons of research around the web seeking for a set of very good sources of information so I can make a good, concise, rightful decision, after all, I deserve to get my money's worth and chances are, I'm putting 3 to 4 figures on a faceless company that is not from my country, I'm paying a good portion (if not all) in advance for my vacations and just hoping that everything goes well... and let me tell you the truth, I would be stressed about this process, I would probably feel lost in an ocean of websites thrown at me from Google all claiming to be the best, to have the lowest rates and most importantly, they will all claim that you will have the best time of your life [period].
