About Costa Rica and the Central Pacific

Costa Rica is notorious for its natural beauty and friendly people. The country's natural attractions, wildlife, and reputation for enlightened conservation lure tourists from all over the world. Costa Rica has some of the region's best surfing, beaches galore, and a tropical atmosphere that provide for an exciting vacation.

Costa Rica is a tropical hidden jewel in Central America.

The Central Pacific has Costa Rica's most sought after images: gorgeous sunsets over its rocky coastline, huge marlin and snapper that attract sport fishermen from all over the world, rugged rain forests that sprawl just meters from soft sandy beaches, and waves that break high and low for surfers of all abilities. The region provides a realm of outdoor and indoor activities for vacationers of all ages to experience.

Visitors vary from vacationing tico families and foreign backpackers to honeymooners and families, all of whom are satisfied by the well-developed tourist infrastructure. Jaco is the most developed destination, though it still retains the small town atmosphere.

Peace-seekers, however, need only move on to less-visited Playa Hermosa or Playa Esterillos for more remote, unspoiled scenery and long stretches of pristine beach. And Manuel Antonio is an easy day trip away. Hot or fresh season, the Central Pacific will pamper you - are you ready?

The Central Pacific's climate is divided into two: a dry season (we call it "hot") running from late-December to mid-April is the most pleasant with temperatures averaged around 81 degrees, and the beaches drenched in sunshine 11-12 hours a day. Actually March and April are the hottest months of the year. What we call the "fresh" or "green" or rainy season is characterized mostly by sunny mornings and early afternoon or evening showers.
