Considered one of the most virgin regions of the country, the Southern Pacific encompasses one of the areas of major biodiversity in Costa Rica: the Corcovado National Park. Nature in its maximum expression… alive, exuberant, greened in every detail of the jungle growth. The area is covered in rainforest that extends to some of the most beautiful beaches one could imagine. The zone starts to the north at Dominical which is a fun little surf village with dirt roads and a lot of character.

Uvita, to the south of Dominical, is the main entrance to Marino Ballena National Park which is home to spectacularly beautiful beaches and also a major breeding zone for Humpback whales during a few months every year. The Osa Peninsula is home to Corcovado National Park, which is one of the most biologically intense areas in the world. Drake Bay and Puerto Jimenez are the best home bases for accessing the park, though most prefer Drake for the amazing beaches, access to Cano Island and nicer lodges.

Caribbean Coast

The Caribbean coast of Costa Rica is a beautiful region that is generally less developed and touristy than the Pacific side. It is the region of most rainfall in the country and this factor, combined with high temperatures, makes the evaporation and humidity quite high throughout the year. The weather here is in stark contrast to the other side as the best weather is in September and October. The colorful Caribbean culture is also quite different as most locals are of Afro-Caribbean descent giving the area a reggae-Rasta vibe.

Puerto Viejo, a surf oriented seaside village, is the most popular destination in this region and is located along the southern coast. Playa Cahuita is a popular destination for those seeking quiet jungle-lined beaches. Tortuguero is located on the northern Caribbean coast within Tortuguero National Park. It is one of the best wildlife observation areas in the country and a primary nesting location for Atlantic Green Sea Turtles from mid-July through mid-October.

With a mesh of Tico and Afro-Caribbean culture, Limon Province displays a unique side of Costa Rica.
