Why Is Costa Rica a Good Place to Visit?

Costa Rica is by far the most popular vacation destination in Central America, and for very good reason. Costa Rica is known for being a small country packed with rainforests, beaches, and nature. Famous for its biodiversity and commitment to sustainability, this small nation has garnered global attention in recent years—it was voted Travel + Leisure's Destination of the Year for 2024, something that surprises no one who's ever visited.
Nature lovers, surfers, fishing enthusiasts, adventure seekers, and tropical sun fans all know Costa Rica as a prime vacation destination. But like everywhere else, there are pros and cons.
