With two long coastlines stretching along the Caribbean Sea and Pacific Ocean, it’s easy to see why Costa Rica is a firm favourite for beach holidays. With great weather all year round, a perfect mix of developed resorts and secluded beaches, and a laidback lifestyle too, there’s no reason not to book your next beach getaway to Costa Rica!

Costa Rica has a beach for everyone. That’s no understatement, because with well over 1,000 kilometres of coastline, there are diverse beaches for every type of traveller.

You can find built-up beach resorts complete with all the necessities a tourist might want, from restaurants and bars to tour companies and organised excursions. You can also find the polar opposite and discover endless stretches of untouched coastline dotted with empty beaches.

Costa Rica can be both raw and wild, or it can provide the perfect beach getaway with five-star hotels and fancy cocktails. But you don’t just have to lounge either, because on the Pacific Coast many beaches have become havens for surfers, while on the Caribbean Sea you can walk off the beach into the ocean, where you can swim and snorkel with turtles and colourful tropical fish.

There are a lot of beaches in Costa Rica, and a lot of beach-based resorts and activities. Our Costa Rica travel experts can help you to pick the beach that’s best for you.

Beach Holidays Highlights in Costa Rica

There are so many great beaches to choose from in Costa Rica, but you needn’t limit yourself to just one. With great transport links and infrastructure, Costa Rica is surprisingly easy to get around, and you’ll be able to beach hop along the coast and from one side of the country to the other, perhaps even taking in a few rainforests and volcanoes as you cross between the Caribbean and the Pacific.

Tortuguero National Park on the Caribbean side is home to a huge population of turtles, and you can step off the white sands and into an underwater world teeming with life. Further south and one of the most famed beach destinations in Costa Rica is Puerto Vieja de Salamanca, where you can even trade white sands for dramatic, black sand, volcanic beaches.

For a classic beach getaway with great hotels and great restaurants, then spend your holiday on the Papagayo Peninsula. Located on the Pacific Coast, this is one of the most developed areas for tourists. But while you can find luxurious hotels, it’s also surprisingly secluded and surrounded by natural beauty.

If you want to get away from the crowds and discover the most secluded beaches in Costa Rica, then travel to the southern Pacific coastline, where you can find raw scenery hidden amongst national parks. It can be difficult finding the most secluded beaches but, in the end, it’s well worth the extra effort if you’re looking to get off the beaten track.

Costa Rica was made for beach holidays. With two long coastlines to choose between, the opportunities for sun, sea and sand are limitless. Contact the Latin America Travel Company to speak to our Costa Rica experts today to start planning your Costa Rican beach getaway!
