Throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s, Costa Rica's tourist industry saw double-digit growth almost every year. Visitors should find a more hospitable welcome and even a bargain or two this winter, as reputable tourist facilities consolidate their positions and the fly-by-night operators are forced out. Several new golf courses are slated to open soon, as are new resorts, including a Melia and a Marriott.
Costa Rica is one of the world's top adventure/eco-tourism destinations, with lots of protected areas, knowledgeable bilingual guides, ecosystem variety, adventure operators, and lodging options. Because of its size and diversity, you can spend one day at the beach and the next deep in the rain forest. And Frommer's make it easy to enjoy the adventure, with detailed, practical coverage that encompasses isolated waterfalls, 850 species of birds, turtle nestings, monkeys in the trees, world-class botanical gardens, and fantastic diving at Isla Coco.
