Packed between the two larger Americas, Central America appears tiny on a map. Even so, the region packs in an incredible diversity. White-sand beaches, soaring mountains and volcanoes, lush rainforests, Spanish haciendas, Mayan ruins, old colonial towns, modern resorts... and the list goes on.
LaCURE villas are proudly located in the most stunning, peaceful and safest of the Central American countries: Costa Rica. These luxury Costa Rica vacation properties are found in the depths of lush rainforest, overlooking the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean, or facing the crashing waves of the Pacific Coast. They grace secluded mountain slopes and are nestled on beaches not far from the action.
Costa Rica offers incredibly diverse landscapes, flora and fauna. The geography ranges from rainforests to dry tropical and temperate forests, to volcanoes, to Caribbean and Pacific beaches, to high mountains and marshy lowlands. The country may contain as much as six percent of the world's plant and animal species in an area of the combined size of the U.S. states of Vermont and New Hampshire.
With its biodiversity, climate and geography (from some vantage points you can see the waters of both the Pacific and Caribbean), the country is a Mecca for eco-tourists, adventurers and connoisseurs of the finest sun vacations.
Costa Rica plant life ranges from huge ficus trees with epiphytes abounding on their limbs to 1,500 different kinds of beautiful flowering orchids. The animals are equally as impressive, whether it's a jaguar (the largest cat in the New World), the ever-elusive margay (a small wild cat with yellowish coat and black spots and stripes), or the wonderful birds, such as the green or scarlet macaws.
Visitors can explore a cloud forest one day, go to an active volcano the next, zip through the treetops on a canopy tour, and finish by relaxing on a stunning beach. On Tamarindo Beach, for example, located on the Gold Coast, on the Pacific Northwest, visitors can of course just sunbathe and swim to cool off as whim dictates. They can also learn to surf, go sailing, snorkel or dive amid the colorful sea life, go fishing and even take a sea turtle tour.
And then they can return to the privacy and pampering of their LaCURE Costa Rica villa, with its inviting pool, luxury amenities and breathtaking views.
