Costa Rica, the quiet side: wildlife & beaches
This spectacular country offers a combination of places to relax and places to visit for adventure, according to The Times’ article. Rainforests with frogs no bigger than a finger live in harmony with monkeys, anteaters and enormous blue morpho butterflies.  Tamarindo is the hot spot for sun-loving tourists and is well developed and has excellent amenities.  Ostional, only 40 miles south, is a stretch of volcanic beach that in the rainy season is home to up to 500,000 olive ridley turtles. A visit to the area around the Arenal volcano offers hot springs, waterfalls and jungle treks and in the cloud forests of Monteverde you might catch sight of the rare and sought after quetzal.
A new direct flight to San Jose makes it easier to visit this fascinating Central American country. See the specialist tour operators who can organise tours and holidays to this delightful country
