Attractions from Costa Rica

Cartago (Cartago)
Cartago was founded in 1563 in the middle of the country, but the old buildings were unfortunately ruined in an earthquake. Today, the city is the departure point for trips to the Irazú crater and the Orosi valley.
Braulio Carillo National Park (Costa Rica)
The park is situated about 23 km north of San José and has no less than five different kinds of forests, including, of course, rain forest. While walking among orchids and fern it's possible to see both jaguars and wild cats.
Bungee jumping at Rio Colorado (Costa Rica)
About half an hour's drive from San José, further inland, you can try out bungee jumping. The drop of 300 meters from the bridge "Viejo Puente sobre el Rio Colorado" (the old bridge over the Colorado River) gives you plenty of time to wonder whether or not you're going to survive this experience.
Cahuita (Costa Rica)
Cahuita has a national park too where you can experience the rain forest. The place is renowned for its fabulous beaches and people who like to snorkel can be sure to have a fantastic experience around the beautiful coral reefs in the ocean at Cahuita.
Chirripó National Park (Costa Rica)
The highest mountain in Costa Rica is situated in Chirripó national park, but an even greater attraction might be that this is also the place to catch a glimpse of the largest bird in Latin America, the quetzal.
Corcovado (Costa Rica)
The national park Corcovado at the Península de Osa is definitely worth a visit if you like birds and colors, as it has a colony of colorful scarlet parrots.
Mercado Central Market (Costa Rica)
Mercado Central is a lively market in the middle of San José, where everything from chicken, finely made leather goods and an atmosphere unmatched by any other part of the city can be found. If you want a cheap meal you've also found the right place.
Monteverde (Costa Rica)
Situated in the northwestern part of Costa Rica is the popular tourist destination of Monteverde. Its attractions include a cheese factory, excellent walking trails, a butterfly valley and a number of galleries.
Museo del Oro and Museo de Jade (Costa Rica)
Museo del Oro Precolombino has an overwhelming collection of Colombian jewels made of gold and Museo de Jade has one the world's largest collections of jade sculptures.
Península de Nicoya (Costa Rica)
Placed in the northwest of the country on the Pacific coast, this area is rather impenetrable because of the lack of paved roads. Still, it's well worth the effort when you reach some of the outstanding and empty beaches which the area contain.
