All of Costa Rica is not created equally.
Many areas along the northern and central Pacific
coast have become highly developed and 'touristy'.
If you are looking to experience the Costa Rica of
your dreams there is really only the South Pacific
Coast and Costa Ballena ('Whale Coast') - where
the beaches are wide and empty, primary rainforest
awaits exploration and the local people are friendly.

private, 250 acre rain-forest preserve, Rancho
