As travelers look to extend what is left of the fleeting 2020 Summer season, many are choosing Costa Rica, located in Central America, as their getaway destination of choice due to the attractive climate conditions and a wide variety of activities and attractions available for visitors to enjoy. There are unlimited options for fun and adventure in Costa Rica with a mountain range between the Caribbean coast in the East and the Pacific coast in the West.

Nature enthusiasts can find many tropical rainforests with its ever active and colorful wildlife, and partake in zip lining and hiking along endless miles of scenic trails. Those that would rather be in the water will enjoy the many beautiful beaches and popular dive resorts available to visitors. Surfers are commonly seen riding the waves, while those that are looking for something more low-key and intimate may choose to charter a boat and enjoy some deep-sea fishing or snorkeling.
