Our first time visiting Costa Rica was in January 2018 and we visited two locations there, Arenal Volcano and Drake Bay. This post will discuss the Drake Bay area, if you want to learn more about Arenal Volcano click here! We're planning another trip to Costa Rica and it was honestly hard for me to not go back to Drake Bay and stay at the exact same hotel. If I had to pick my absolute favorite location I've ever been to, it would probably be Drake Bay. Costa Rica is a gorgeous country so I really don't think you can go wrong visiting any region, below is some more specific information about the Drake Bay area.
Also we always book our trips through Costa Rica Expeditions who are abosolutely amazing and really make planning these trips easy. I usually do all the planning for our trips but I happened to use them for our first trip to Costa Rica and now I can't imagine doing it any other way.
