Thrill-seekers around the globe almost all have one thing in common: they have a trip to Costa Rica on their bucket list. Known the world over for its adventure-filled environment, Costa Rica never disappoints. From zip-lining through the trees to exploring the rainforests, there is no shortage of exciting things to do.
Two of the most coveted spots to explore in Costa Rica are the Culebra Bay and the Diamante Eco Adventure Park. Both tourists and locals who crave excitement rave over the snorkeling at Culebra Bay and the non-stop thrills at the adventure park. There are many exquisite Costa Rica vacation resorts that are close to the action.
Snorkeling in Culebra Bay
Culebra Bay is in the northern area of the Gulf of Papagayo. The warm, calm, blue-green waters make it one of the world’s top destinations for snorkeling and diving. There are over 400 species of wildlife along its white-sand beaches, clear waters, and surrounding vibrant rainforest.
The area is a briskly up-and-coming resort town with luxury hotels, like Andaz Costa Rica Resort at Peninsula Papagayo which offers luxurious amenities to recover after a hard day of play. The area is perfect for families and new snorkelers with its slow waves and low tides, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t exciting. Visit the nearby marina for even more excitement.
Diamante Eco Adventure Park
True adventure awaits visitors to this eco-friendly nature park. Diamante Eco Adventure Park offers the longest and most beautiful ocean view zip-lining experience available as well as an animal sanctuary with a large variety of species to view. You can also explore the colorful array of flora and fauna amid the rain forest, mountains, and land.
Admittance comes in three daily passes, adventure, aerial, and discovery. Take an ATV tour or explore the park by horseback. Spend an hour or the whole day with prices ranging from approximately $50 to $120 per pass.
Getting around Costa Rica is a breeze. It doesn’t matter how you want to get to your destination; there is a fun and exciting way to do it. Horseback riding, ATVs, and kayaks are some of the more adventuresome ways to travel here. Or, you can also take public transportation, rent a vehicle, or take a ferry.
The resorts also provide private shuttles and cars. If you need a ride to breakfast on the beach or to exploring the rainforest, you’ll be able to find the right mode of transport to fit your needs.
Costa Rica vacations are perfect no matter what you are into, but thrill-seekers are exceptionally satisfied with their trip. The zip-lining alone is world-class, and something you cannot experience anywhere else. Add to it the plethora of other activities that abound in the area, and you have a recipe for a vacation you won’t soon forget. Whether your idea of excitement is zip-lining high above the rainforest or snorkeling in the ocean’s depths, Costa Rica is a vacation dream come true.
