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. But throughout the country you will also find unspoiled rural areas of farmland, forest, and charming villages. Life is lived much as it has for generations. If you’re looking for a quiet place with small town values to set up home, you might consider the Costa Rican countryside.

Lake Arenal is surrounded by farmland and pasture, ensuring that the shoreline is unspoiled with fantastic views. Some of the best coffee in the world is grown on fincas in the mountainous Central Valley region.Homes and small farms cover the hills of the Central Valley.Decades ago oxcarts were the vehicles of choice for Costa Rican farmers. Today, they are used only in parades to celebrate the country’s agricultural heritage.The Guanacaste province, which includes the northern Pacific coast, is cattle country, with vast pastures.On the Caribbean coast, homes are set in the jungle. The long-dormant cacao (the key ingredient in chocolate) industry is coming back with new farms being planted.
