Costa Rica

The word "paradise" may have been invented to describe this Central American country full of family-friendly beaches and magical cloud forests.

Costa Rica Destination Map

Welcome to Costa Rica, one of the happiest countries in the world.

With its high standard of living and absolutely gorgeous weather all year long, you might be tempted to move to Costa Rica, rather than just visit. One of the most environmentally-sustainable countries on earth, Costa Rica’s residents take immense pride in their natural resources, whether that be therapeutic volcanic hot springs or just great coffee. But the emphasis on nature doesn’t mean you’ll be roughing it. Visitors here can choose from both all-inclusive and European plan resorts ranging from rustic eco-lodges to chic luxury hotels. Wherever you stay, get out and explore, because even if you decide just to visit, you'll definitely run out of time before you run out of things to do here.​

Dreams Las Mareas

Tucked among lush green mountains and situated on a stunning beach, this adventurer’s hideaway puts you right where you need to be to enjoy all of Guanacaste’s action-packed outdoor experiences—and the pampering of Unlimited-Luxury®.

Getting there & getting around

Flying into the capital city of San Jose tends to be cheaper, but Liberia is considerably closer to both Arenal and Monteverde, as well as Guanacaste’s beaches. With so much to see, renting a car is a smart idea, but be warned, road signage is limited. Weather-wise, winter and spring are the best times to go. But if you don’t mind your rainforests with a little rain, rates tend to be cheaper from May through October.

Insider Tip Image

Many visitors to Costa Rica split their time between the coast and the highland rainforest regions.


Despite being sunny, dry and stunningly beautiful all year long, Costa Rica's Guanacaste region remains pleasantly uncrowded. Its 400 miles of Pacific Coast boast both white and black-sand beaches, while much of the inland area consists of both tropical dry forests and rainforests. Resorts dot the beaches from the Papagayo peninsula down to Tamarindo, a lively village known for its coffee, restaurants, and great surfing.

Lake Arenal & Arenal Volcano National Park

While the beaches are great, most of the items on your "must do in Costa Rica" list will get crossed off in the shadow of Arenal. The villages lining Lake Arenal are filled with smiling faces, traditional handicrafts, and resorts with stunning views of the volcano. Here there's hiking, whitewater rafting, ziplining, spelunking, and—just when your muscles want a vacation from your vacation—relaxing in Tabacon’s romantic hot springs.

Lake Arena Volcano

Tabacon has a full-service outdoor spa, with thick jungle trees creating the walls for its open-air treatment rooms.

Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve

Wherever you go in Costa Rica, you'll be close to nature. But nowhere else is that more true than in Monteverde, where winds from both the Pacific and the Caribbean collide to create a magical cloud forest. Hundreds of species of orchids cover the ground, while iridescent green birds called "resplendent quetzals" fly overhead. Even if it wasn’t one of the most diverse ecosystems on earth, it would still be one of the most stunning.

Monteverde Cloud

Guided tours of Monteverde and Lake Arenal can be booked along with your hotel and flight as part of your Funjet vacation package.

Adventure & ecotourism

One of the most common phrases you'll hear in Costa Rica is pura vida. From the Spanish, it literally translates to "pure life," but for Costa Ricans, it means much more. It connotes a closesness to nature, of giving thanks for the bounty that surrounds them, and a belief in the importance of sustainable tourism. Costa Rican resorts are serious about both conservation and giving guests the chance to learn about the natural beauty and rich culture surrounding them.
