If you have decided to go to places that are really eco-friendly and are the upcoming tourist destinations in the world than you should definitely visit Costa Rica. The country is situated in the Central America region and therefore it is very close to the Caribbean Sea and Pacific Ocean giving you the kind of climate and environment that will make your holidays better and happier. Unlike many others we have a pre-conceived notion that Costa Rica might be plagued with a lot of violence and political situations but that it completely wrong. In fact the nation has been awarded the fifth place among the cleanest countries in the world and many other awards like the best marine diversity and the best eco-friendly country in the world.
So, how do you travel all the way to Costa Rica? Well, you can check some of the international flights that might be halting at San Jose International Airport. Many new international airlines are now making new routes which go through Costa Rica. If you are travelling from the United States to Costa Rica than airline operators like Continental Airlines, Delta Airlines, American Airlines, United Airlines, Northwest Airlines, US Airways, and Frontier Airlines are the ones that have direct flights to both San Jose International Airport and Daniel Oduber International Airport in Guanacaste. If you are in Europe, than you can select airline operators like Iberia Airlines, Condor, Air Caribes and MartinAir. Air Canada and Air Transat can get you to San Jose from Canada and if you are in other parts of the world than you can go for Aviateca, Copa Airlines, Mexicana and Taca Airlines which have direct flights that will take you to San Jose which is the capital city of the Republic of Costa Rica.
Once you are in San Jose you can rent a car as that would be cheaper compare to using a public transport which might be confusing at times. There are many car rental services available at all the domestic and international airports so you can book your car directly from the airport and they will drop you at your hotel or any other accommodation facility that suit your needs. These car rental companies also provide tour packages so if you are willing to the car will come down to pick you up from your hotel and will take you to some of the most famous locations in San Jose and the nearby places around the city. However, if you are driving your own car than you can take the Interamerican Highway which is considered as the main junction to move into different parts of Costa Rica. One of the best locations while you are driving is the Cerro de la Muerte also popularly known as the Death Mountains which is almost 3200 meters above the sea level and gives you a spectacular view while you are heading towards your destination. Apart from roads, rivers are also an important means of transport and you can use rivers to move from one zone to another if you don't want to use the roadways.
