The Top Places to Visit whilst Backpacking in Costa Rica

I have now been to Costa Rica 3 times in the last 16 months and let me tell you, there’s a VERY good reason for it. Whilst Costa Rica isn’t the cheapest country in Central America (contrary to what some sites online says), it holds so much beauty and magic and should 100% be on your travel list.

Choosing a country to visit is the easy past, deciding where to go once in the country is most difficult! Let me take some of that difficulty from you and give you a list of my most recommended locations to visit in Costa Rica:

📍La Fortuna
📍Volcán Arenal
📍Lake Arenal
📍Natural Hot Springs
📍Río Celeste Waterfall

📍Santa Teresa
📍Bigajual Waterfall
📍Parque Nacional Manuel Antonio
📍Nauyaca Waterfalls
📍Playa Hermosa
📍Uvita Waterfall
📍Parque Nacional Bahía Ballena
📍Playa Chaman
📍Isla del Caño
📍Parque Nacional Corcovado

📍Puerto Viejo
📍Parque Nacional Cahuita
📍Punta Uva
📍BriBri (Waterfalls)

Across these locations you will experience beautiful sunsets and sunrises, natural pools and vast oceans, jungles, beaches and nature like you’ve never seen.

Whether you go during rainy season or summer, you’re guaranteed an incredible time (even if you get a little wet whilst doing so).
