Costa Rica is a beautiful country, ideal for those that love all of the outdoors, from the beach to the mountains to the rainforest. This trip can be customized with activities that take advantage of all of these based on your preferences.

From the hotel, you can do several excursions that you can not lose, like the visit of the National Park Rincon de la Vieja, the Safari Park or the capital of Guanacaste: Liberia.
