Costa Rica Travel Photo Gallery

Costa Rica was shorter lived for us than most countries we visit with only spending two weeks there. However, it was really an enjoyable place to travel as it had beautiful beaches, vibrant cities, the cutest wildlife, as well as cloud forests to explore. Here are our highlights presented through our Costa Rica travel photos.

Puerto Viejo and Cahuita National Park

In terms of wildlife and pristine beaches, Puerto Viejo and it’s neighboring national park called Cahuita, top the list. Read our guide to Puerto Viejo here.

Monteverde

Last but not least on our travels in Costa Rica was the beautiful Monteverde. Monteverde is higher up in altitude and therefore boasts a magical cloud forest. If you love nature then this place is for you.
