7 Ways To Experience Ecotourism In Costa Rica

Here are 7 enchanting ways to experience Ecotourism in Costa Rica:

  • 1. Puntarenas

    Puntarenas is the port town of Costa Rica's Gulf of Nicoya. In order to have a glimpse of the rich marine life, make a visit to the town's aquarium, Parque Marino del Pacífico. The aquarium is nestled along the shores of the Pacific and therefore showcases some of the rare nurse sharks, manta rays, and nemo marine species. In addition, an excursion on the Tarcoles River can reveal its world-famous crocodile jungle.

  • 2. Dominical

    For eco-enthusiasts and surfers, the Dominical town of Costa Rica is the best place to be. The town is frequented by year-round waves, and its shores also experience breath-taking breezes. If you are visiting the region, consider taking a hike to the Nauyaca waterfalls.

  • 3. Corcovado National Park

    A nature trail in the Corcovado National Park is the epitome of eco-tourism in Costa Rica. A nature walk here gives you the opportunity to see its wildlife which includes ancient trees, squirrel monkeys, scarlet macaws, jaguars, and tapirs. The national park protects myriad ecosystems and is considered to be one of the world's most biodiverse regions.

  • 4. Uvita

    Uvita is a small village in the southern part of Costa Rica. This destination is famous for hosting annual music events and is also home to the Cola de Ballena. The tiny village has a 2-mile shore with white sandy beaches, and is excellent for swimming, among other beach activities.

  • 5. Tortuguero National Park

    This is a village located in the Limon province of the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. The coastal town is a sandbar that has rainforest vegetation. It is also a famous nesting site for the endangered green turtles.

  • 6. La Fortuna

They are laced with hot flowing lava, and at the foot there are hot springs where you can take a warm bath in the naturally warm pools. There are rainforest trails with clean air that will help clear your mind.
