Tourists do not only visit Costa Rica for its beaches — they visit for its adventure! There is so much nature to explore, volcanoes to see, and trails to hike. Costa Rica is a country located in Central America that has unlimited tourist potential and is ranked as one of the most visited international destinations. You can easily wander outside your resorts in Costa Rica and visit local restaurants and shops or see the black volcanic ash beaches.

When you visit, take a day-trip to Costa Rica’s most popular site, the Arenal Volcano National Park. Until 2010, it was Costa Rica’s most active volcano. Much to the enjoyment of its visitors, Arenal spewed enormous amounts of lava, gas and ash on a regular basis. That eruptive cycle – which began with the infamous eruption of 1968 – ended recently. In October 2010, Arenal entered into an indeterminate resting phase.
