You see the world differently after a stay at a Costa Rica vacation rental. While Costa Rica has what are indisputably the most fantastic beaches in the world, proud Ricos honor every inch of their immaculate country. Travelers to Costa Rica are impressed not only by the spectacular natural beauty of the cloudforest, volcanoes and beaches, but the cheerful philosophy expressed so often by the locals: “Pura Vida!” the pure life. Living an active, healthy life in tandem with experiencing and protecting the lush backdrop of their environment. Head to the mountains of Monteverde to hike the dense rainforest under the drifting clouds, or zip line through the canopy of the tall trees in a breathtaking jungle excursion. Surf the coast of Playa Tamarindo, a vibrant beach town filled with starry-eyed travelers and ecstatic surfers. Whatever you do, don’t leave before you hike through the national park of Manuel Antonio, through jungle trees with little monkeys peering down at you, to the incredible beach in the heart of the park- considered the most beautiful beach in the world. When you return from your Costa Rica vacation rental, the "pura vida" will return with you.
