The Pacific Coast
Where the Jungle Meets the Beach
The stretch of coastline that runs down Costa Rica's Pacific side contains patches of rainforest and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world--all easily accessible from the Interamerican Highway.
Keeping away from the more crowded spots, you can enjoy more discrete beaches, nature trails, and see real tropical wildlife on display--sometimes right outside your bedroom. Expect an abundance of monkeys, parrots, and sloths.
