Regions in Costa Rica

Sandwiched between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans and packed with pristine national parks, surf-swept beaches and cloudforests teeming with exotic birdlife, Costa Rica is one of the most biodiverse countries on Earth.

And whether you want to see turtles nesting in Tortuguero, get up close to sloths and tarantulas on an eerie night walk in Monteverde or just enjoy a lazy lunch at a traditional soda, use our map of Costa Rica to plan the trip of a lifetime.

Costa Rica certainly doesn’t lack beautiful natural settings; stay at a luxurious ecolodge in the heart of the jungle and immerse yourself in its lush surroundings; raft the rapids of the Río Pacuare; or hike across old lava flows in the shadow of Volcán Arenal. For a more relaxing stay, enjoy a show at the Teatro Nacional in San José or sit back with a cup of steaming Costa Rican coffee, the export that made this grand theatre possible.
