2. THE NORTH & CENTRAL PACIFIC BEACH HOPPING TOUR - 9 DAYS / 8 NIGHTS
Wondering which of the dozens of beautiful Costa Rican beaches is right for you? Come with us on our new beach hopping tour, visiting the best sixteen beaches for your future retirement plan. This unique tour will give you a complete scope of all the pros and cons of each, each with its own particular charm.
The Northern Pacific is famous for its beaches, folklore, and wide sabanas. You may be interested either to live in a first class beach resort or in laid back beaches with only a couple of fisherman as neighbors. From the boiling mud pots of Rincon de la Vieja Volcano, to the sun-drenched beaches, this trip offers vacationers, investors, and retirees the opportunity of checking them all out and getting all the necessary information to make knowledgeable decisions for this important stage of your life. The US crisis has brought real estate properties down, allowing great investment returns. Partial ownership, vacation rental income producers and well established American property management corporations are all here. In a prompt but relaxed pace, we will visit: Hermosa, Coco, Ocotal and Pez Vela beaches on the Papagayo area, Conchal, Flamingo, Potrero, Brasilito, Grande, Langosta and Tamarindo beaches on the Santa Cruz area and Herradura, Jaco, Hermosa, Esterillos and Manuel Antonio beaches on the Central Pacific.

3. THE CENTRAL PACIFIC BEACH RETIREMENT TOUR - AN ADD ON PACKAGE TO THE CENTRAL VALLEY TOUR - 3 DAYS / 2 NIGHTS
Compare the Central Valley retirement area with the most popular beach retirement areas! The Central Pacific beachs and jungle area, is a region that comprises a narrow coastal plain hemmed hard up to the ocean by steep forest-clad mountains. Located about 110 km West of San José, this is traditionally the main destination of the people from Costa Rica's Capital San José to enjoy a few vacation days. A new highway connects the Central Pacific to San Jose, reducing the driving time to the city to only 1 hour. The shore is fringed by long, gray-sand beaches, being Jacó, the most developed resort in the country, due to its popularity with the party-hearty crowd, more than with its beach. Surfing beaches extend all the way south to Dominical and, beyond, where the climate becomes increasingly humid, noticeable in the lush tropical forests of Manuel Antonio National Park. South of Jaco, you can find lots of deserted beaches, wildlife and small coastal towns. The average temperatures on the beach are about 22ºC (72ºF) minimum and 32ºC (90ºF) maximum.
