Where to find the best food in Costa Rica?

Experience local food in Costa Rica

A visit to Costa Rica wouldn't be complete without sampling their unique traditional cuisine. Costa Rican cuisine reflects both their history as a Spanish colony and their pre-Colombian past, as well as the country's abundance of natural resources. The local diet is rich in tropical fruits and vegetables, seafood, meat, and of course the regional staples, rice and beans.

A must try is gallo pinto, arguably the national dish, although there is some disagreement over whether this was invented by the Ticos (Costa Ricans) or their neighbours, Nicaragua. Gallo pinto is made up of rice and beans which are cooked separately and then fried together, and is traditionally served with breakfast, often accompanied by eggs, local cheese and/or bread.

Other typical dishes include black bean soup, ceviche (raw fish marinated in lime juice), fried plantains (a local vegetable which is essentially a larger, savoury version of a banana) and countless types of seafood. Beer is very popular here, and you will be able to try the produce of local craft breweries. For dessert, Tres Leches is very typical: this is a cake soaked in three types of milk, forming a sweet, refreshingly cool dessert.

What are the best nightlife spots in Costa Rica?

Vibrant nightlife in Costa Rica

Nightlife and going out in Costa Rica is generally characterized by beachside bars, discos, karaoke bars and large street parties. This varies depending on where you are in the country. In the capital, San Jose, you can dance all night at large nightclubs such as the multi-dance floor Club Vertigo, or have a more relaxed evening at a craft brewery or chic cocktail lounge.

On Sunday nights in the resort town of Puerto Viejo on the Caribbean coast, the town comes alive with live bands and DJs. Over on the Pacific coast, in Tamarindo, you can try your luck at the casino, or sing the night away one of the many lively karaoke bars in town. Across the country, many bars also double as restaurants, meaning you can enjoy a meal at practically any hour.

Where are the unique attractions in Costa Rica?

Explore Costa Rica's natural landscapes

Many Costa Rica villa rentals are located on the coast. This is not surprising since the country has a large amount of beautiful, pristine coastline. You can find stunning beaches at Jaco and Tamarindo on the Pacific side, or Limon and Puerto Viejo on the clear waters of the Caribbean. The Pacific side is well-known for its excellent surfing, while both coasts offer countless sandy beaches for swimming, sunbathing and relaxing.

Costa Rica is also renowned as an eco-lovers paradise. Throughout the country you will find spectacular national parks where you can hike volcanos, visit rainforests and cloud forests, and see unique wildlife. You can hike the active volcano Arenal, around 90km northwest of San Jose.

In the southwest is Corcovado National Park, which encompasses a variety of tropical ecosystems, making it one of the most biodiverse regions in the world. The coastal natural reserve Tortuguero protects a number of native species including the endangered green turtle.

What are the best events and festivals in Costa Rica?

Costa Rican Fiestas and Festivals

Another major event on Costa Rica's annual calendar is Carnival. Carnival is celebrated in various parts of the country just before lent starts, but the biggest celebration of all is in Puntarenas on the Pacific coast.
