Great Vacation Spots and Things to Do in Costa Rica with AAA Tours

Drake Bay is a secluded place of Costa Rica. It is one of those places where nature is practically untouched. You will find it on the northern tip of the Osa Peninsula. This remote destination can only be accessed by boat or plane almost all year but during the rainy season you might be able to drive there. There are some great eco-lodges in the area that offer a wide range of tours that any nature lover or adventurous soul would love.

The tour you can't miss in this region is a hiking or horseback riding tour that takes you through the forest where you get to see the local wildlife. You can also do some scuba diving, snorkeling, sport fishing and whale & dolphin watching tours in the crystal clear waters of its coasts. If you are looking for something a bit more exciting there are some great options for canopy tours.

It is also great as headquarters for your adventures in the area. From here the incredibly bio-diverse Corcovado National Park (one of the largest untouched reserves of the country) and the Cano Island Biological Reserve are really close.

Fun fact: it is said that this place was use by pirates to hide their treasures during the 16th century.

The last unspoiled Spot on the Costa Rican Caribbean

I love light hiking along the beach and paths meandering along the coast. While living in Costa Rica I found the perfect place for it: the Cahuita National Park. I love seeing animals as I relax in the middle of the forest just steps away from the beach. This national park is located in the South Caribbean coast of the beautiful Costa Rica in the Limon province and offers all I want.

It is a really big national park and was purchased by a former Costa Rican president. All the land was part of the Cahuita settlement and bought for 500 colones and donated it to its residents later. That is why Costa Ricans refer to it as the only national park of the country that truly belongs to the people.

The best months to visit this place to avoid rain are: from September to mid-November and from March to May. This way you will be able to enjoy things such as living coral reefs, abundant marine life, monkeys that hide among the trees, its white sanded beaches and its trails instead of sitting on your hotel room.

As you can see the options here are endless, you can:

• Go on Hiking tours along the trails

• Do some Snorkeling in the reef

• Go Biking

• Bird Watching

• Sports fishing
