Very nice and clean Hotel for family 4*, very well located close to nice area.
The food (buffet format) is of very high quality and variety.
For the beach you need to cross to the beach first, a few swimming pools offering drinks are quite close to the hotel.
Classy animation, mostly singer/music, after dinner.
Not for people who like Club Med style animation though, much quieter at the Riu Palace.
Costa Rica, a Catholic country in Central America, shares its borders with Nicaragua and Panama. It has the Pacific Ocean to the west and Carribean Coast to the East. Dominated by Roman Catholics, it is a secular country and respects all religions. Costa Ricans or the people living in the country are called Ticos. The country is known for a variety of wildlife, distinct culture and plethora of adventure activities. You will find yourself lost in the national parks surrounded by unique flora and fauna. Myriad adventures from surfing to horse riding will make your Costa Rica trip electrifying and memorable. Moreover, the high-spirited and hospitable Ticos, captivating nightlife and quiet beaches are the major attraction for tourists.
Costa Rican Beach Jaco:
Beaches in Costa Rica, like jaco, may well be one of the most important assets in the eyes of visitors. The beaches come in all sizes, shapes and types.
One of the most known beaches is called Jaco.
Jaco is one of the first beaches to become a real tourist magnet. It is also one of the closest beaches to San Jose.
The beach itself is a three km long beach with nice sand and the water is inviting. However, as always when swimming in the sea, check out current riptides as well as keep an eye on the tide.
Jaco has rapidly become one of the selected party beaches in Costa Rica and the long beach has a multitude of hotels,

Costa Rica is not only well known for its nature but amazing community life you can experience in traditional towns. Specially, coffee towns ☕️.
Dota is a very special county, not only its located at the foothills of Talamanca (highest mountain range ⛰), 1.5 hours from capital San Jose, has an amazing natural forest (San Gerardo de Dota area), but also is one of the popular coffee areas in the country.
Santa María de Dota, county head town, is a traditional town. In Costa Rica, the church is always one of the most representative buildings in any town/city. This town has a museum for preservation of their cultural heritage, and had made efforts to keep a traditional lifestyle to attract tourists (national and international). During our visit, it was nice to see homes decorated with ox cars or maintaining their traditional architecture.
Santa María is also very close to the Quetzals National Park, ideal for birds watching, sightseeing and definitely hiking tours. San Gerardo de Dota is called a magic cloudy forest land, but can be farther than expected. Definitely a place I want to visit when return home.
📍Santa María de Dota, Dota, Los Santos area, San José, Costa Rica

Golfito beach is gorgeous, like many beaches in Costa Rica, inside Golfo Dulce (Sweet Gulf). Golfito town is located very near Golfito National Wildlife Refuge you can go hiking for the day, and next by the Marina ⛵️. Howe
I won’t suggest you to try scuba diving 🤿 in this area, there are lots of fishermen and boats around that you can’t fully enjoy the experience. Unless you are told you can do it near wildlife reserve.
Sailing ⛵️ in this area is great, you can ask the local fishermen to move you to another beach 🏝 where you will be alone to enjoy nature and your day. Traveling from Golfito and Puntarenitas (small island in front of Golfito) was one of my favorite places during a summer I spend every weekend in the area.
🔴 This area is always better to visit in summer, during rainy season there can be floods, or problems among the roads.
📍Golfito, Puntarenas, Costa Rica

La Paz Waterfall Gardens Natural Park is one of the most famous tours for tourists in Costa Rica, located only a few hours from San Jose (and 1 hour away from airport). They offer accommodation, restaurants services or just one-day hiking trip into the rainforest and their animal sanctuary. Remember zoos were banned in Costa Rica years ago, only few sanctuaries are open to public as rehabilitation center for many wild animals.
La Paz trails includes 5 different waterfalls, a small lake, birds 🐦 , butterflies 🦋 , snakes 🐍 , monkeys 🐵, hummingbirds, orchid station, insects, frogs 🐸 and few jungle cats, like jaguar, ocelots and more 🐆 .
Remember to carry a jacket and probably raincoat when you visit, either in summer or rainy season. Temperature in rainforest is always a bit chilly and you will definitely get wet around the waterfalls trails. Carry comfortable shoes, this hike can be exhausting.
Outside the gardens, few minutes into the main road (route 126), you can watch the amazing La Paz waterfall that falls. The waterfall is 37m height. This waterfall is also very near Poas volcano 🌋, if you want to spend the night in the gardens you can continue your trip next day to hike around the Poas Volcano National Park, or just visit the crater. Just remember your jacket.
📍Vara Blanca, Heredia, Costa Rica

I can’t help but think that the monkey park gets the experience it provides spot on. We were probably there for an hour in total, which was perfect and didn’t leave us lugging around in the heat for too long. Plenty to do and look at in the park without being too expansive or exhaustive.
€10 pp for entry is brilliant for the experience provided, and I must assume this as one of the best excursions available on the island in terms of value for money. A further €3 for animal food made the experience greater for my partner, who was extremely excited to be able to feed the monkeys personally, as well as the lemurs, some tortoise, and guinea pigs. Little to no queueing allows you to enjoy the experience that bit extra also, so kudos for that.
