Why Choose Costa Rica Vacation Rentals?

Costa Rica, translated as Rich Coast in Spanish is aptly 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.

Costa Rica has become a popular vacation destination for good reason.  Not only is it popular for the many activities such as white river rafting, surfing, horseback riding, deep sea fishing and other outdoor adventures, it is also a wonderful place to relax and do nothing but enjoy the sound of rustling palm fronds and 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 rentals instead of staying in a hotel you will be even more delighted with your stay in this wonderful paradise.
