Costa Rica may be a small country but it is incredibly diverse. You could spend a lifetime exploring this little paradise and still never see it all. Did you know Costa Rica is home to several micro-climates? With all those micro-climates comes tons of different vibes in each Costa Rica destination and we love them all!

In Cartago you can find Irazu and Turrialbe volcanos, coffee plantations, nice hiking, and a city with beautiful historical buildings. If you are spending a few days near the airport, definitely take some day trips to this region.

GUANACASTE PROVINCE

Guanacaste is home to some of Costa Rica’s most beautiful beaches. Many of the beaches have a very laid-back vibe and are popular with surfers.

 HEREDIA PROVINCE

Heredia is the place to go for coffee plantation tours, beautiful mountain views, and good hiking. We love the amazing views of San Jose from the mountainous roads in this region.

LIMON PROVINCE

Located on the Caribbean coast, Limon Province has a completely different vibe than the rest of Costa Rica. Here you can expect an Afro-Caribbean culture. This area is not as popular with tourists because of its distance from the airports, but it is our favorite area to visit.

PUNTARENAS PROVINCE

The Puntarenas area is very popular with tourists due to its proximity to the international airport. You can find a little of everything in this area including national parks, nightlife, beautiful beaches, world-class fishing, and surfing.

 SAN JOSE PROVINCE

San Jose has a reputation for not being the nicest city in the world, but it is worth giving it a chance. The city is home to many great restaurants, nightlife, museums, and theaters. In the areas surrounding the city you will find picturous mountains and great hiking spots. Plus, the weather is mild and perfect year round.

 PANAMA

Ok, obviously Panama is a country, not a province and Panama is not in Costa Rica and this site is about Costa Rica. We get it, but we had to include Panama on here for one special place, Bocas del Toro. This is one of the coolest places we’ve ever been and I highly suggest it to all of you heading to the Caribbean coast. Visit! You’ll never want to leave.
