Perhaps the most popular tourist destination in Costa Rica, the Central Pacific region of the country is also the most easily accessible. Costa Rica’s Central Pacific Coast has been known for its amazing beaches, tremendous surf and jaw dropping wildlife for a long time and with good reason. The Central Pacific has many important national and private protected areas. These pristine green zones provide sanctuary for many endangered species. So it is no wonder the region remains one of the country’s most frequented destinations.

Costa Rica’s Pacific coast is characterized by a rugged (although mostly accessible) coastline where forested mountains often meet the sea. It can be divided into three distinct regions — Guanacaste and the Nicoya Peninsula, the Central Coast, and the Southern Coast. There are some spectacular stretches of coastline, and most of the country’s top beaches are here.

The intriguing Pacific Ocean melts into the coast of Costa Rica’s Central Pacific Region giving life to beautiful beaches, unique sunsets, and miniature cities with the necessary amenities to have a pleasant vacation. A wet and rainy climate allows for greater biodiversity in the beaches and hills next to the coast; thus, there is a transition from tropical wet forest to tropical forest to tropical dry forest. These ecosystems provide habitat for numerous plant and animal species that are protected in several wilderness areas.
