Online agencies such as Vacations Costa Rica have helped to make Costa Rica the desired travel destination for many Americans seeking the ultimate getaway in tropical paradise.
An recent article published in the Real Estate section of the New York Times stated that Costa Rica has the advantages of an active tourism board, as well as a reputation for being environmentally friendly and peaceful. The New York Times article goes on to say that an increasing number of Americans love the unspoiled jungle landscapes and warm seas of Costa Rica, referred to as “a beachhead for luxury”. Online agencies such as vacationscostarica.com have helped to make Costa Rica the desired travel destination for many Americans seeking the ultimate getaway in tropical paradise.
Planning a Costa Rica holiday is a dream come true for many, as evidenced by the statistics of their tourism board. According to recent figures, over a million visitors arrive in Costa Rica each year, representing a quarter of their population. Additionally, more than half the annual visitors to Costa Rica every year are from the United States. Savvy travelers have also discovered that a completely customized Costa Rican vacation can be conveniently planned online. Scheduling a Costa Rican vacation rental on the Internet is a secure and simple way for travelers to arrange an ideal, cost effective trip in less time and with minimal effort. Casey Halloran, owner of Vacations Costa Rica, states that, “We have a full website with great photographs of Costa Rica and will arrange your perfect Costa Rica travel experience. Whether choosing a hotel, vacation rental or tour, we offer only the best of Costa Rica.

Conservation concerns, respecting the environment and practicing ecotourism are top priorities in Costa Rica. Ecotourism is a vehicle to sustainable development that makes it possible to receive tourists without compromising the quality of the land and its valuable resources. At the Third International Conference of Ecotourism in November, 2006, Costa Rica was recognized as one of the world leaders in ecotourism. As a result of ecotourism, travelers can secure first class accommodations that include amenities such as spas and golfing while still experiencing the raw beauty and peace of tropical paradise. Because of its lush, unaffected environment, Costa Rica is more alluring than ever as a luxury vacation destination.
For decades, the Pacific Coast of northern Costa Rica has been a haven for hikers, backpackers and surfers. Although slightly less remote today, Costa Rica adventure travel is still extremely popular because of the incredible surf and picturesque, natural terrain. The 762 miles of coastlines in Costa Rica offer endless waterfront experiences, such as boating, fishing and water sports. Along the coastlines, the existence of unusual fauna and wildlife create opportunities for unprecedented nature excursions. Mr. Halloran says, “Our highly trained team of travel experts are here in Costa Rica to help you plan your adventure. We arrange your perfect Costa Rica travel experience and tailor every vacation package to fit you like a fine suit. We even meet you at the airport and are on call during your stay to deliver first class service. Our goal is to provide you a comfortable and memorable vacation in this paradise we call home.”
