When I think of Costa Rica, I immediately start and think of its amazing and colorful beaches. This lovely country, located in Central America, is well-known for its beauty. Over the years Costa Rica has become a very popular destination, since it is so easy to fall in love with it.
If you are wondering about when it is the best period of the year to send yourself off to this stunning country, here is a great news: all year long. The weather is basically perfect, especially if you suffer cold, then this is definitely the place where you should head over to. Anyway bear in mind that the dry season is from December to April; if you are able to choose this moment it would be even better.
Long summertime, windy days, lots of sun: I do believe it is really a great mix to start and dream about it.
5 stunning beaches in Costa Rica
*1 Playa Punta Uva
Where to start this magical tour? Punta Uva is surely an amazing way to kick off your holiday. Located in the South of Puerto Viejo on the Caribbean coast (close to the border with Panama), once in here all you need to do is enjoying this landscape to the fullest: monkeys, palm trees and pure water are ready to welcome you. I do suggest to rent a bike (there are many bike shops in the town) and go cycling along the Ocean to make your staying even more unforgettable.
*2 Playa Los Suecos
Also known as “The Malpais Secret Beach”, this is another wonderful beach to take into consideration during your holiday tour in Costa Rica. One of the whitest sand beaches on Southern Nicoya peninsula, it is a great place where you can go snorkeling. And what about enjoying a sunset in here? No doubt is going to be a super wise choice. Amazing. Colorful. Incredible!
