Why not find your next vacation renal home in Costa Rica? Located at the southernmost of the seven countries that comprise Central America, it is bounded by the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean, with the countries of Panama to the East and South and Nicaragua to the North. The population of Costa Rica is over four million, and the capital city is San José. Costa Rica, which means ‘rich coast’, strives to be one of the most environmentally friendly and ‘greenest’ countries in the world.
Once a nearly undiscovered destination, this area is rapidly growing in popularity and offers a wide range of holiday experiences. It is an area of variable terrain, from rain forests to volcanoes, rivers to pristine beaches. Eco tourism is quickly becoming more prominent; one of the most popular destinations is "Costa Rica's Amazon" - the Tortuguero National Park.
Costa Rica is also known a surfer’s paradise, with over 800km of coastline to be explored. The waves are prominent, and can be great for beginner or experts alike. On the Pacific coast, the waves are best between June and December, while the Caribbean coast is prime between December to March and June/July. Other extreme enthusiasts can venture up volcanoes, into tropical rain forests and waterfalls, or zip trek through tree-topped canopies. To slow down and relax, a vacation rental or villa on the beach is a perfect retreat. Some accommodations offer day spas to be truly pampered.
The climate in Costa Rica is tropical year round since it is located just north of the Equator, making it an excellent vacation rental choice. With the varying elevation, topography and geography, there are many microclimates across the country. Costa Rica has a rainy season (or winter) between May and November, while the dry (or summer) period runs between December and April. The humidity tends to be higher on the Caribbean side of the country, rather than the Pacific side.
Regardless of the type of vacation you’re looking for, vacation rentals and condo rentals make for wonderful accommodation. Booking your lodging directly from owners of villa rentals or condo rentals will allow you to see the local way of life in Costa Rica. Accommodations are bountiful, with something for everyone: whether an ocean-front villa rental, tree house vacation rentals, or a rooftop condo rental.
