Despite being a small country, Costa Rica boasts over 500,000 plant and animal species, making it one of the most biologically dense and diverse countries in the world. Along with that, it’s very rich in hot springs. These two assets make Costa Rica a perfect destination for a relaxing vacation.
The Real Deal
There aren’t many people in the world that wouldn’t enjoy a dip in hot water. While having a Jacuzzi is nice, the real thing is much better.
And Costa Rica has plenty of those – from Titoku Hot Springs to Tabacón Grand Spa Thermal Resort, it seems like there is no end to relaxation and comfort in this country.
The hot springs in Costa Rica are completely natural. For example, the springs in Tabacón are fed from the active underwater Arenal volcano, which is a mile underneath the natural pools. Besides helping you relax, these waters are rich with minerals that your body benefits from.
Mother Nature In All Her Beauty
After a session in one of the hot springs, stroll over to Tortuguero National Park and witness the most preserved natural sight in the world. This park on the Caribbean coast is considered as the most important breeding ground for many endangered species, such as green turtles, manatees, and sloths.
In the end, you’ll want to check out Costa Rica’s capital, San José. Located in the center of the country, this city is home to many museums, theaters, clubs, and restaurants.
And for those craving more magnificent works of nature, make sure to visit La Paz Waterfall Gardens. Aside from the amazing waterfalls, you can find aviaries, humming bird and butterfly gardens, and much, much more.
