Costa Rica is ideal for people planning to take part in water sports
Costa Rica is a place where people on activity holidays can take part in the "grandest adventures" - such as snorkelling, kayaking and any number of hiking holidays - according to the country's promotional organisation.
Visit Costa Rica, the tourism body for the Central American nation, noted that the country has so much to offer people on holidays, making it ideal for those planning any number of different trip types.
"In Costa Rica the visitor can enjoy lovely tropical beaches, the grandest adventures, the wonders of nature, scintillating culture, all the necessary components of an ideal vacation," the website reads.
"No wonder, then, that thousands of tourists have made Costa Rica their top travel choice."
The location of Costa Rica also makes it perfect for people just planning to relax in the sunshine; its territory stretches for nearly 20,000 square miles, with coasts on both the Atlantic and the Pacific oceans.
