Nature Attractions in Costa Rica



If there's one thing Costa Rica is recognized for most it is the splendor of its great outdoors. One need not be a wildlife enthusiast nor a nature lover to appreciate all there is to do under the sun, clouds, and even on rainy days in Costa Rica. Adventurous types can test their mettle on the white water rapids of the Rio Pacuare or on a canopy tour zip lining through the jungle, and kids and adults of all ages have fun exploring the outdoor attractions at the impressive InBio Park. Surfers and beach bums head to the Caribbean coast for Salsa Brava's fierce coral reef break and the picturesque white sand against turquoise sea at Cocles beach, while the nearby national parks in Cahuita and the Manzanillo Gandoca Wildlife Refuge encompass some of the most biodiverse outdoors environments of the world. The Sloth Sanctuary and Jaguar Rescue center are ideal sites for communing with local animals in their natural habitat while they recuperate from injury or abandonment, and a visit to the Poas Volcano offers a dramatic look at one of the earth's most powerful geothermal forces in action. Whatever your preferences may be, there is never a shortage of things to do outdoors in Costa Rica.
