The Quiet Costa Rican Countryside

For such a small country, Costa Rica is amazingly diverse as far as landscapes, climates, and lifestyle. There are bustling beach towns, big modern cities, and lush jungles.

If you’re looking for a quiet place with small town values to set up home, you might consider the Costa Rican countryside.
