Make a holiday rental in Puntarenas, Costa Rica your home away from home

Things to do in Puntarenas, Costa Rica

For a country noted for its large protected natural areas, the Corvocado National Park on the Osa Peninsula is especially spectacular. It’s worth heading here from a Puntarenas self-catering holiday rental if you’d like to experience a memorable adventure. The wilderness here will offer plenty of opportunities to photograph wildlife such as exotic birds, tapirs, large cats, monkeys, whales and dolphins. The updated road system in the region makes it easier than ever to reach areas of breathtaking natural beauty such as this.

Another stunning protected area that can be reached from Puntarenas holiday accommodation is the Marino Ballena National Park, which is maybe most well-known for its annual humpback whale migration, which takes place from December to April. At Ballena and Uvita you’ll encounter unspoiled white sandy beaches, and all around you’ll be able to spot some wonderful wildlife. There are green marine iguanas, hawksbill turtles, not to mention humpback whales and common dolphins, which can be admired on organised boat trips.

To the north of the region around Puntarenas self-catering villas is the Arenal National Park, which takes its name from the 1,600 metre volcano, which dominated a portion of the landscape. It’s the most active volcano in the country, having last erupted in 1973. In this park you can take trails to explore lava fields from recent eruptions and along the way you’ll be able to see white-faced monkeys, parrots and deer.
