Costa Rica is Not An Island – Bill Beard Costa Rica

and San Juan is Not The Capitol – All of our readers know this, so please don’t take it as an insult. However in our travels we meet people that think just that. I guess we are lucky that they haven’t discovered what we know, that Costa Rica is a vibrant, beautiful country in Central America, the capitol is San Jose and we all love her dearly.

I suppose we can’t keep it a secret forever since Costa Rica is ranked number one for best winter vacations according to the report of U.S. News Report. ” its charm lies in its  people, lush rainforest, beautiful beaches, and wildlife“.

Where else can you go from the Pacific Ocean beaches to the rain forest, to the dry plains of Guanacaste in under an hour? I only know one place and that is Costa Rica. You can even toss in the Hot Springs, mud baths and whitewater river rafting if you wish and make it a day.

Family travel is on the up-swing in Costa Rica and there are many good reasons for that:

  1. Close proximity to the U.S. , Mexico, South America and Canada
  2. All major airlines fly into our two international airports. Liberia & San Jose

  4. Lower prices for family vacation packages. (Compare to other near-by destinations)
  5. Activities. Plenty of activities for every member of the family
