Exploring Costa Rica with a rented car
This wonderful country is mostly famous for its nature landmarks. Costa Rica is home to mysterious caves, big volcanoes, beautiful flower fields, dense forests and waterfalls. There are several active volcanoes in the country – Irazu, Arenal, Poas and Rinkon de la Vieja. All of them are located close to large settlements, so there are roads to these volcanoes and visitors are offered to attend excursions every day.

There are many uninhabited islands in Costa Rica, the most famous of which being Cocos, Negritos, Kanyo and Los Pajaros islands. These islands are considered national reserves, but travellers are permitted to arrive there to enjoy secluded beaches, walk in palm groves, and see exotic birds and animals. The islands are also perfect for fishing, underwater hunting and scuba diving.

Barra Honda Caverns are a true miracle of nature, so there’s no wonder why this place is so popular with tourists. The complex consists of 19 caves, with the biggest one being 240m deep. Walls and floors of the caves are decorated with beautiful minerals that make these caves look more like shiny treasuries.

There are as many as 74 nature reserves in Costa Rica. Among them one can find tropical rainforests, mountain reserves and mangrove swamps. The most famous and frequently visited resorts are Tapanti, Guanacaste, Lomas de Barbudal, Palo Verde, Manuel Antonio, Barbilla and La Changreja. Some of these parks are located near the coastal line and some are in the mountains, so every tourist will easily pick up a park to fit one’s taste.

Those, who want to see precious archaeological findings, some of which are 2500 years old, are recommended to visit Turrialba Volcano, which region has always been used as a site of archaeological excavations. Continue your acquaintance with the country by visiting numerous museums of San Jose, the capital of the country. Various collections of jewellery, household items and historic artefacts, are exhibited at the National Museum. One of the museums – the Museum of Gold – is dedicated exclusively to items made of gold. The museum exhibits items that belong to the Indian era and later periods. The town of Limon, which is located near the capital, is a beautiful place that delights visitors with its beautiful beaches, reefs and tropical islands.
