Getting to know the Costa Rica area may be a really good idea for an optimal vacation experience in a beautiful country with lots of great food and outdoor activities to partake in.  Central America is known for its close proximity to the beaches in two directions and serious surfers take to the waves in the beautiful surf and quiet beach countryside.

Costa Rica is in Central America and it boarders Nicaragua to the North, Panama to the Southeast, The Pacific Ocean is to the West and The Caribbean Sea is to the East.  Flying from Washington D.C. to San Jose airport is roughly 300$ one way.

I heard about his great hotel on the beach of Costa Rica called El Rancho Coral. And it offers many amenities to choose from.  Take surfing lessons there at the facility and get a complete and total body workout while enjoying the sun and water in this luxurious country. Tommy Bernsdorf is the owner of this hotel, and a genuinely nice guy as well.

The Hotel Rancho Coral offers double rooms which may accommodate one to two persons at a price of 75$ per night.  The beach front villas can accommodate two to three persons and they are available at 130$ per night.  The Garden View villas may accommodate three to four persons per night and they are available at 120$ per night.

The Manuel Antonio Park is considered one of the most beautiful parks on Costa Rica and it is very easy to plan a day trip to this park for children and other tourists who are not surfing for the day.

Consider visiting the Arenal Volcano and Tabocon hot springs also another legendary Costa Rica park where one may relax in the soothing hot springs waters while observing the stars and the spectacular night sky above the volcano.
