Costa Rica's Beaches

Costa Rica means a 'rich coast' in Spanish. Needless to say, Costa Rica is known for its beaches and marine life. Costa Rica is one of the most ecology-rich countries and even has an entire park dedicated to turtles. Costa Rica has a treasure trove of beaches, inviting tourists for water sports and even fishing, to a lazing sunbath on the beaches.

Costa Rica is also known for its eco-tourism. Most of the beaches in Costa Rica are very close to each other and almost a walkable distance. Therefore, one can travel to a number of beaches in one day. Apart from the big beaches, Costa Rica also has small beaches, which provide the serenity and silence nature can offer.

Hermosa Beach

Some of the famous beaches in Costa Rica are Manuel Antonio, Esterillos, Jaco, Hermosa Boca Barranca, Playa Conchal, Playa Hermosa, Playa Tamarindo, and Playa de Coco.

Tourism has brought about a boom in the real estate in Costa Rica. Tourism is a all year round business, and having a second home in a beach in Costa Rica is a very good idea. With a little bit of investment, one can have a real estate in another country, which is paying them premium tourism rent every month!

Travel to Costa Rica is simple and is worth it for its abundance of nature and marine life. One can also consider living in Costa Rica by opening up a tourist spot or lodge at a beach. One beach whose real estate value has really sprung up since the past few years is Puntarenas, primarily because of the place's proximity to San Jose, the capital.

Apart from water sports, some beaches also have preserved forests. The Playa Hermosa and the Playa Manuel Antonio are two such beaches. The preserved forests are one of the main attractions of Costa Rica. They have an abundant population of exotic animals and marine life.
