Central Pacific, Costa Rica

Why Central Pacific?

The Central Pacific Region covers Puntarenas to the North and Quepos and Manuel Antonio to the south.

This narrow strip of gorgeous land is known for its lush rain forests,  mountainous coastline, protected wildlife and serene, vast beaches. This part of Costa Rica is truly unlike any other.

The Central Coast is easily accessible which makes it the most popular vacation destination in Costa Rica. It is only one to one and a half hours from the capital of San Jose with the nation’s top ranked hospitals and American style shopping malls.  Juan Santamaria International Airport is located in nearby Alajuela. With most airlines flying directly into this airport,  visiting the Central Pacific is naturally a preferred destination.

The Central Pacific boasts an ample amount of hotels, restaurants and shopping. Explore the white sand beaches of Punta Leona, the tropical rainforest park of Carara, and the popular Manuel Antonio National Park in Quepos.  Visit nearby waterfalls and check out the world class surf breaks found in Playa Jaco and Playa Hermosa.
