Monteverde Cloud Forest - an ecological paradise in Costa Rica
Review of Monteverde (Costa Rica) by siberian-queen

Advantages: an ecological wonderland
Disadvantages: if you don't like nature - it's not your thing

The Monteverde Cloud Forest in Costa Rica - even the mention of it takes me away to a beautiful place, I adored it and would go back in the drop of a hat. I am not alone apparently National Geographic quoted it to be "the natural jewel in the crown of clo ... Read review

The Fortunate Few
Review of Volcán Arenal National Park (Costa Rica) by zoe_page

Advantages: Pretty town, not too far from San Jose, with good weather
Disadvantages: Not a lot to see in town, and tours can be pricy

La Fortuna is a town about 80 miles from the Costa Rican capital of San Jose. You can visit as a day trip, but many people chose to stay a night or two, to take advantage of the many activities on offer in the area. We spent 2 days and 2 nights there, hav ... Read review

Review of Monteverde (Costa Rica) by zoe_page

Advantages: Unusual Cloud Forest & Quaker ice cream to boot...
Disadvantages: Time spent on rickety roads in rickety minibusses

In 2007, Costa Ricans voted Monteverde (literally 'Green mountain') one of Costa Rica's Seven Wonders, though to be fair there's not all that much to choose from in such a tiny country. That said, I have visited this place as well as two of the other entr ... Read review

Surfing Jaco Beach Costa Rica
Review of Surf, Breaks, Jaco Beach by Tico24

Advantages: Central location, choice for hotels, food, clubs, and activities and surfing for all levels
Disadvantages: Crime, Pollution, Drugs are a problem in all of Costa Rica which is a shame.

Surfing in Costa Rica is an international destination. The previous review was dated very much. Today, Jaco is a thriving city located on the central pacific coast of Costa Rica. You can find hotels, hostels, bars, nightclubs, and adventure. You can fi ... Read review

Tamarindo and Montezuma
Review of Pacific Coast (Costa Rica) by kittykatty31

Advantages: Sun, sea, sand, shopping, nightlife, beautiful scenery, friendly people
Disadvantages: Sunburn, variation in hostel quality, travel is hard work, dengue fever

First of all, Tamarindo and Montezuma could not be more different. Montezuma is a tiny little place that's totally laid back and has a really "hiipY" vibe to it. I loved it. Tamarindo is a bustling, set to be the 'next big destination' town with loads of ... Read review

Great review! I got back from Costa Rica a couple of weeks ago and miss it loads already! Perhaps its worth mentioning how bad the weather can be in San Jose, especially in the wet season. Kat x by kittykatty31

Great review, I loved reading it. I often wondered how I'd get on in Costa Rica if I'd been driving instead of relying on taxis and buses. I reckon with the lack of addresses and road signs I'd have been 100% lost all the time! Kat x by kittykatty31
