Choosing where to go in Costa Rica is tantamount to being a child in a huge sweet shop - the choice is daunting and you want to do it all ... immediately. Given all the options, it's worth doing a bit of planning. Obviously, the more time you have the better, but one of the great things about Costa Rica is its diversity-to-size ratio. Even with just a few days, you would have time to visit a couple of highland spots and a beach before heading home. Use our selection of itineraries as a guideline for what is possible within different time frames, and have a look at our sections on when and where to go.
