Puntarenas, Costa Rica: Scarlet Macaws and Surfing in Popular Ecotourism Getaway

Puntarenas is Costa Rica’s largest province, extending hundreds of miles along the Pacific coast from the Panama border to the Gulf of Nicoya. In Puntarenas, you’re never far from beaches, national parks, and nature reserves, making the area popular for ecotourism. The beachside town of Jacó attracts surfers from all over the globe with consistently big waves and good breaks. About 20 miles north, Carara National Park is home to crocodiles, two-toed sloths, and hundreds of scarlet macaws—a rare sight in most parts of the country.

Trying to book the trip is difficult with no one to talk too and no online tools to see available dates. Especially when you are trying to coordinate a baby sitter and a flight
