Things to do

The untamed pulls of Puntarenas

Puntarenas is peppered with some of the most biodiverse national parks in all of Costa Rica – and that's seriously saying something. They start in the far south, where the reserves of Corcovado host old-growth rainforest and trails that wiggle through dense thickets to reveal galumphing tapirs and swinging monkeys, the likes of which you've never heard of. The Manuel Antonio National Park is almost always top of the bill with ecotourists. It's inhabited by rare white-faced capuchin monkeys and 3-toed sloths, and has beaches so gorgeous you'll be pinching yourself to check they're real.


Shake the droplets from your hair in Puntarenas

Catching waves and watching the sea roll in is top of the list for many a surf-mad traveler in Puntarenas. You can bag yourself Puntarenas vacation rentals in legendary Malpais and Santa Teresa for the best swells on the Nicoya Peninsula. Or, you can grab a shack amongst the coconut palms of Jaco, further down the coast. At night, when the board is resting, these sorts of places turn into happy-go-lucky hubs for travelers looking for company in the bars and surfer dives – perfect for cracking a cold beer, sharing tales of the sea and watching the sunset.


Puntarenas goes from green to sun-splashed

Winter sunseekers will be pleased to know that Puntarenas is doused in rays while snows are falling in the Midwest. The period from December to April is known as the dry season in these parts. It's virtually without rain and has temperatures that hover pleasantly around the low 70s – perhaps a Puntarenas vacation rental on the beach would be perfect? The rest of the year is hailed locally as the "green season." It's when Costa Rica has its rains. That can be a great time to witness the enormous variety of life in the rainforests.

Natural features

Puntarenas brims with biodiversity

Prepare to be wowed by the sheer biodiversity of Puntarenas. Few places on the planet are said to have such a spread of wildlife, which means even the shortest of excursions into a national park can reveal glimpses of multicolored birds, slow-moving sloths, tapirs and a whole medley of monkeys. The old-growth rainforests of the Corcovado National Park and the dense palm thickets of the Manuel Antonio National Park are the top places to go for a break into the wilds. Their misty jungles spill into seas, where waves crash against boulders and dolphins skim the swells.
