named for the 762 miles of white sand beaches spread
between the Pacific and Caribbean. Most of the
beaches are backed by rain forests, containing a myriad
of rare flora and fauna, while just off shore can be a
snorkeler's or scuba diver's paradise offering a
kaleidoscope of brightly colored tropical fish and
intricate coral formations. This is only one
reason to choose Costa Rica vacation rentals.

the rhythmic crashing of the surf. Combine that
with cool tropical drinks, fresh fruit, an abundance of
seafood and local music, arts and theatre and you have
the perfect location for an unforgettable relaxing
vacation. If you choose Costa Rica vacation
