Volcanoes, Beaches and Cloud Forests in Costa Rica are Simply Incredible!

Costa Rica Tourist Spots and Attractions

Seeing Costa Rica for the first time is so incredible, and I am sure that I want to come back to this impressive country the next time I get the chance. I spent eight days touring volcanoes, beaches, cloud forests, hot springs, and much more with Costa Rica Monkey Tours. They are a great tour company that really knows how to take care of visitors. Check out some of the pics from the trip.

"Costa Rica has a lot to offer visitors in one shot, and you can go on a completely different trip every time you visit the country," according to David Ulloa at www.costaricamonkeytours.com.

Costa Rica is in Central America to the north of Panama and south of Nicaragua. There are two international airports, but for my trip I flew to the one in the Northern Province of Guanacaste in the city of Liberia. The first hotel that I stayed in was right across the street. After my long trip, it felt so nice to crawl in bed for a rest. The next day was when all the fun started.

Everything was ready ahead of time, and I was off to Rincón de la Vieja Volcano as soon as I finished breakfast in the morning. I might have felt afraid travelling to Costa Rica for the first time, but the guides made everything super easy. Nice! It makes a big difference when you travel with people who take care of you the whole time.

Here are some great pics of the beautiful places I saw while in Costa Rica:

Our group travels by van in the country, and it is nice and comfy. We make it to the cloud forest. It’s like an island in the sky.

9. There are lots of animals in the forest

Costa Rica is the home of many different kinds of animals, and a lot of them lives in the cloud forest of Monteverde. There are monkeys and sloths and many kinds of birds. I think the animals are really amazing, and so do the other visitors. Wow!

There´s even more to see from above the ground, and it is so fun to travel this way.

15. We also went to Guatil Pottery town

The aboriginal people of Costa Rica make pottery the old way, and they teach us how to do it, too. This is also where we learn some facts about the culture of Costa Rica. Costa Rica had people living here around 10,000 BCE, but there weren’t that many. The Spanish arrived first in 1502 when Christopher Colombus came to the country.
