If you love new adventures or outdoor sports, you can't do much better than a Costa Rica holiday. This Central American country has just about any experience you can dream up, whether it's diving, horseback riding, surfing or zip-lining. Let's not forget San Jose, the capital, where you can get your museum fix or ride the wave of the vibrant nightlife scene. Things to Do in Costa Rica
Costa Rica packages place you on the doorstep of nearly unlimited adventures; sign up to go zip-lining through the rainforest, or pal around with the wildlife at one of the country's many nature preserves, such as the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve.
Hey, are those birds watching you from the trees? Well, “toucan” play at that game! Amateur ornithologists have their work cut out for them in Costa Rica, with over 800 bird species known to reside within the country. Hide out beneath the ominous mass of Arenal Volcano, the country's most active volcano, then calm yourself down with a soak in one of the nearby hot springs.
Next, work in a coffee plantation tour and don't forget to squeeze in some quality beach time. Strap on that scuba mask and dive right in: There's marine life galore to befriend.
Not sure how to get yourself to and from all the fun? Simple. Count on one of Wotif’s Costa Rica car hire options to get you from Point A to Point B. Shopping, Dining & Nightlife
One more thing’s for sure on Costa Rica holidays: Great shopping! Browse the markets in smaller cities outside of San Jose, where the items you find are more likely to be authentic. If you can't make it outside of San Jose, check out the charming Saturday farmers market at the north end of Barrio Aranjuez to buy organic produce, chocolate, coffee, jewellery, leather and more. The pedestrian-only Avenida Central is also worth checking out. If you're stumped, go with coffee—it's a great souvenir (and it'll "Costa" you much less than at home!).
When you work up an appetite, check out downtown San Jose for an array of great restaurants and cafes, where you can try local dishes such as Gallo Pinto and ceviche. If you want the chance to rub elbows with the locals, head over to Mercado Central to get some authentic Costa Rican cuisine from one of the small restaurants there—just look for the longest line!
Feeling good and ready to get your groove on? Start out with a show at the National Symphony Orchestra, and then head downtown to check out some of the local bars, salsa clubs and discos. Nightlife thrives in the Escazu and Santa Ana neighbourhoods as well. When you've worn yourself out, head back to the great hotel you booked through Wotif’s Costa Rica holiday packages and rest up. It's another big day tomorrow! What's Next?
