Travel and Leisure international magazine chose Playa Carrillo in Guanacaste, as one of the best beaches of the world. It emphasized on the region’s poor development and also highlighted the paradisaical as a true oasis in the Nicoya peninsula.
In the story, writer says this is a relaxed village of fishing, of white sand and surrounded by mountains with a palm tree boulevard. Other beaches chosen by the publication include La Pedrera in Uruguay, Matagorda in Texas, Happy Bay, St. Martin, Lord Howe Island in Australia, and Ibo Island in Mozambique.
“Just south of the popular surfer’s paradise of Samara Beach, Playa Carrillo is one of the least developed spots on the Nicoya Peninsula. Framed by mountains, the laid-back fishing village has a white-sand beach just off a palm-lined boulevard (there are no unsightly beachfront developments). Known among divers for its excellent coral reef teeming with marine life, the beach is protected by rocky headlands, providing calm, warm water for swimmers. Accommodations such as El Sueno are off the beach, but quite reasonably priced. Don’t miss the La Selva Zoo and Bromeliad Gardens at the southern end of the bay” – wrote David A. Keeps on this article.
This is not the first time Travel and Leisure mentions Costa Rica on their website, it frequently makes announcements of travel options ans current offers to visit the country.
Many have written about their experiences while been in the country, such as:
“Our family had vacationed in these parts a couple of years ago, taking a cruise down a jungle river, spying on monkeys in Manuel Antonio National Park, and going on an expedition to see leatherbacks, the world’s largest turtles, lay eggs on the beach before they headed back to sea.” – Ursula Fousler
Recently Travel and Leisure included Costa Rica as one of the premier destinations for those who enjoy Zip Lining, located in Nosara, named Miss Sky, Nosara. Eco tourism has been one of the most explored topics when writing about Costa Rica. Regardless the place you visit, nature conservation its always present.
“This jungle vision was so enchanting that I forgot I was completely wet, and I almost forgot that I’d have to descend the tree the same way I’d come up: a nerve-jangling journey in a tiny bosun’s chair attached to a pulley. The whole experience seemed to me the epitome of ecotourism—a gentle and conscientious trespass into another world.”-Marcel Theroux.
On July 2010, the same magazine chose Costa Rica as number one country for solo travelers, based on its safeness. “One of those rare countries without armed forces, Costa Rica gives fresh meaning to the term peaceful.”Share on Facebook
