Everyone Has a Different “Must See” List
Ours takes the opinions, recommendations & feedback from thousands of travelers, combines them with our personal favorites & adds a couple off the beaten track secrets to give you the top ten.
Costa Rica has so much diversity
and so many great destinations you could have a spectacular vacation without visiting any of the top ten list, but it’s a good place to start if you’re looking for ideas.
Of course there are also more than ten great places to visit in Costa Rica and when we were making the must see list there were half a dozen others that kept popping onto it then getting bumped off by something that added more diversity or seemed a little more appropriate.
We made the first version of this list about twenty years ago and some of the best destinations have remained the same although the places have gone through a lot of changes. Another place to look for ideas is the page of the most popular destinations in Costa Rica.
Once you’ve decided where you want to go and what you want to see it’s worth a visit to our page on the best things to do in Costa Rica and you can answer the question “when?” by looking into the best time to visit Costa Rica.
If “must see” sounds too “been there done that” for your tastes check out the list of Costa Rica’s best kept secrets.
Think anyone will mind that we snuck in 11 and added some honorable mentions too…?
