Activities in Costa Rica

Have fun during your stay

couple enjoying sunset

With all of the amazing things that Costa Rica has to offer, it can be safely said that there are plenty of activities to keep everyone thrilled with the adventure, discovery, rest and relaxation of Latin America.

Costa Rica features an incredible 800 miles of coastline; from craggy, cliff-side shorelines to tranquil black-sand stretches, every beach is perfectly picturesque in its own way. An incredibly diverse landscape, Costa Rica offers nature-lovers endless opportunities for exploration. Twenty-five percent of Costa Rica is comprised of dense, lush rainforest, much of which is protected and nearly pristine. Costa Rica also features towering mountains, plunging waterfalls, misty cloud forests and serene marshes. Finally, the country boasts 121 volcanic structures, and is home to one of the world’s most active volcanoes.

While many people visit in the hopes of seeing iconic animals such as the scarlet macaw, the toucan and the capuchin monkey, not everyone realizes the vastness of Costa Rica’s biodiversity. While it makes up only .03 percent of the world’s total landmass, it houses 5 percent of the world’s total species. The country is home to 130 freshwater fish species, 208 mammal species, 850 bird species, 1000 butterfly species and a full 34,000 species of insects. And if those numbers weren’t impressive enough, new species of plants and animals are discovered nearly every single day.

No matter what you love to do, there is an exciting activity waiting for you in Costa Rica. From rock climbing, to whitewater rafting, to ziplining or big game fishing, you can enjoy the outdoors year round. Of course, if you just want to soak up some sun on the beach, enjoy some luxury spa time, or relax in some natural hot springs, you can do that, too.

What our customers are saying

Myself and 3 of my closest friends headed to Los Suenos at the beginning of October to have a guys fishing weekend only a 3 hour flight from Houston. HRG picked us up at the airport and whisked us off to the Playa Herradura area. Everything was taken care of including the sport fishing. Mike helped us out with everything and we will definitely be going back next year.
Recommended for: Adventure seekers, sightseeing.

Dan C. (Orlando)

Wonderful place to visit. Los suenos spectacular place. Nice people. Great food. Not too outrageously expensive. Great supermarket up the street. Did not need car. Golf cart key. Being able to take golf cart out of main gate key. Many great tours to chose from. I found the concierge service with Ricardo and Nancy very helpful and prices they arranged very fair and competitive. Awesome excursions , river tours with crocodiles, canopy zip lines, Tortuga trip, and of course fishing trip (4 sailfish , 6 mahi). No real beach at Los suenos but marina, restarants, shops, and phenomenal beach club and pool setup made up for it. We will be back.
