Top Vacation Spots: Costa Rica

Dave Lauridsen

Costa Rica

With its exotic wildlife, sun-soaked beaches, and dramatic mountains, Costa Rica is a great vacation spot for all types of travelers. Sure, Costa Rica has been on the radar for a while, but with a host of small, stylish hotels hidden in the jungle and along the shore, the tiny Central American country is now more appealing than ever. Check out Costa Rica’s best hotels and its hottest new hotels and lodges, from San José to the Arenal Volcano. And here’s a planning tip: November to late April is the dry season and the ideal time to visit the Osa Peninsula, which doesn’t draw the mainland’s high-season crowds.
