About the Areas of Costa Rica

The Central Valley region is green rolling hills which are primarily agricultural growing things such as coffee, horticultural plants for export and pasture land for livestock.  This central region is surrounded by a mountain range featuring four volcanic peaks.

Guanacaste is the northwestern corner of the country and is most popular for a beach destination. Here you will find a number of high-rise hotels and resorts as well as condo development.  Even with the growth in this area you’ll still find long stretches of deserted beach.  This area is easiest reached by flying into the Liberia airport.

Puntarenas & the Nicoya Peninsula is located south of Guanacaste and is similar to the Guanacaste region but less developed and less crowded.

The Northern Zone is the inland region that lies north of San Jose and includes rainforests, cloud forests, hot springs and the country’s two most active volcanoes Arenal and Rincon de la Vieja.  This region does not have beaches so the main attraction here is nature and active sports.  Lake Arenal features some of the best windsurfing and kitesurfing in the world as well as several very good mountai-biking trains along the shores.  The Monteverde Cloud Forest is probably the most well-known attraction and the top draw to this region.

The Central Pacific Coast is very accessible and features a wide variety of beaches along with beach resorts and hotels.  Playa de Jaco is a popular beach well known for surfing and an easy hour or so drive from San Jose. Manuel Antonio is a popular coastal national park with great unspoiled beaches and lush tropical surroundings home to a large array of wildlife.

The Southern Zone is a hot, humid region and is remote and mostly undeveloped.  It is home to dense rainforests, national parks, protected areas and rugged coastlines.

The Caribbean Coast is largely made up of rainforests and banana plantations and is often rainy especially between December and April.  The northern area is only accessible by boat or small plane.  The southern area features beautiful beaches but has not yet become a popular destination as it has very few hotels.
