Any single person who might be dreaming of their perfect holiday destination, then we are sure that Costa Rica may well feature on the list. With coastline on both the Caribbean and Pacific Ocean and a rainforest sandwiched in between the island and its people are able to offer a unique experience of activities and relaxation year-round. With a developing tourism infrastructure of traveller requiring accessibility options, planning for visits to Costa Rica certainly need some advanced planning in order to enjoy the best of all this biodiverse country has to offer. The local Costa Rican community are determined to make the country that they love as accessible as possible for visitors and together have invested heavily in working together as part of the Costa Rica Accessible Network. The emphasis for this not for profit organisation is the fair treatment of visitors offering access at fair prices to enable them to feel 'part of the country’s social and natural environment to become not a mere tourist'.
Costa Rica has a dazzling array of outdoor activities and adventures on offer for people of differing abilities and passions. Whether that is surfing in the warm seas or or rafting in the white water rapids to enjoying hikes in the rainforest trails to enjoy the huge range of animal species or the thrill of zip-lining amongst the treetops, there is something for every adrenaline junkie. However, a visit to Costa Rica does not have to mean a fast pace of life, if tranquil rest and a more relaxed experience is what you are looking for. Tours of the captal city - San Jose where a leisurely pace to take in the local history and architecture is available or a peaceful picnic in the national park are also an option, along with more natural visits to the coffee plantations where an educational experience of the rich natural environment may be gained. And for those who enjoy an artistic theme, there are museums, theatres and experiences of the ancient local arts of oxcart making.
