3 Costa Rica Solo Travel Steals & Deals: Costa Rica is one of the top destinations for everyone but especially solo travelers. I especially appreciated the week I had there since I could combine a rainforest trek with strolling beaches on two different coasts with a cultural/historical tour of the capital, San Jose. For adventure, there is zip-lining and for an active vacation, multiple sports options from whitewater rafting to hiking past towering volcanoes and snorkeling and diving through schools of vibrant tropical fish. While there is something for everyone, Costa Rica is a very economical vacation with rates as low as $45. (See our 11 options.)

You expect paradise to be beautiful. But who knew it was so much fun? Costa Rica blends adventure and nature like nowhere else. A quarter of the country is protected paradise for everything from anteaters to orchids. The best part is how easy and exciting it is. You don’t just look at the cloud forest canopy. You stroll through it on suspended bridges or glide through on a zipline. You can high-five a monkey from a kayak or slalom down a colorful tropical jungle river by raft. And you’ll explore with expert naturalists who make sure you spot the best fauna and flora. You’ll meet the native ticos, too, and learn about local life. The trip features stays at the foot of Arenal Volcano and in Manuel Antonio Park, and all activities are included at no extra cost. Because Costa Rica is temperate and close to the U.S., you can join us in almost any season—and it’s a great spur-of-the-moment getaway.
