Rivers, waterfalls and wetlands make Costa Rica a fabulous destination for water sports enthusiasts. Situated between 2 oceans, the country is covered in tropical rainforest and offers adventures galore. From turbulent white water rafting to spectacular fishing on the Pacific Ocean, these activities are a must for active travellers.
There is no shortage of water in Costa Rica thanks to its tropical wet climate. A 3,821-metre-high mountain ridge with several active volcanoes divides east and west. The west coast has a clearly defined rainy season, while the Caribbean side is wet and humid all year round. Beautiful rivers carry the rain water out to sea. As a result, you will find many outdoor activities in and around the water.
