Costa Rica’s dreamy Caribbean Coast

The warm waters of the Caribbean lap gently against Costa Rica’s dreamy Caribbean Coast. The calm seas attract green sea turtles from July to September, which come ashore to nest on the golden beaches. Because of this, much of the region is protected and you won’t find the same infrastructure here that you’ll find on other Caribbean coastlines. It’s a little more rugged and rustic, but this is all the more appealing for wildlife spotters as it allows nature to thrive. Many people come to enjoy the spectacular natural setting of Tortuguero National Park, accessible only by air or water. Afro-Caribbean roots mean this bustling village has a strong identity of its own, quite different to the rest of Costa Rica.
