With a rental car, indeed, you’ll be able to cover all distances in a very short time. In just over an hour, following the westbound State road 27, you’ll be on the most beautiful beaches of Costa Rica, while taking the State road 1 and then continuing on the 126 you’ll be at La Paz waterfalls in just 1 hour. Two other must-see sights that you won’t forget are definitely the Arenal Volcano and Manuel Antonio Park.

Indeed, you can walk on its pristine beaches behind an unspoilt forest, where thousands of beautifully coloured animals live peacefully, such as toucans and parrots that will keep you company until sunset, when the forest will be dominated by the absolute silence of nature.
