Costa Rica Travel News – Have you been out to the gorgeous blue waters on Costa Rica’s Caribbean Coast lately? You can have the time of your life while not breaking your wallet.
Lonely Planet’s picks are based on travel by the company’s experts trekking the globe to select the best countries, cities and regions to visit in 2016.
Costa Rica is number 8 on the “best value destination for 2016“, an annual hot-list of where to go for “wallet-friendly wandering”.
Lonely Planet’s description of Costa Rica’s Caribbean:
“Looking for a Costa Rica that’s more Tico than tourist, but with everything that makes the country such a big draw? Get to the country’s Caribbean coast and you’ll find a still-evolving destination that’s likely to become a big noise over the next few years. Here you’ll find nesting turtles at Tortuguero, rafting on the Río Pacuare and diving in the reefs of Manzanillo. Surfers and fans of laid-back black-sand beaches should aim for the southern coast. For now, this is a land mostly visited by independent travellers and those seeking out birdlife. Not sold? Two words: sloth sanctuary.”
