Tamarindo Beach

Known for its picturesque, cotton candy-colored sunsets, Tamarindo Beach is a great place to relax and surf. Various companies in the area even offer lessons to those new to surfing. Whether you want surfers in your pictures or not, the gorgeous skies will make stopping by worth it.


Rio Celeste Waterfall

Located inside Tenorio Volcano National Park, Rio Celeste Waterfall is the epitome of a hidden gem. Tucked inside a forest within the park, the waterfall is accessible through a hiking trail and takes about 45 minutes to get there. Once you arrive, the beautiful bright blue and turquoise waters might just leave you breathless.


Monteverde Cloud Forest

Not only is this cloud forest full of lively wildlife and serene greenery, but it also contains a suspension bridge that overlooks the best parts of the forest. The bridge is treetop level and allows you to venture through the forest in a way you may not have ever done before. If heights aren’t your thing, you can also take ground-level trails to capture the forest.


Arenal Volcano

An active volcano with a consistent flow of lava since the late 60s, Arenal is protected by the Arenal Volcano National Park, making it a safe way to see a flowing volcano. Here, you will be able to hike around old lava flow fields and craters and get exciting pictures. Plus, you don’t have to worry about safety, as plenty of park rangers monitor the volcano and shut things down when needed.


Manzanillo Beach

Manzanillo Beach is primarily undeveloped on the country's coast and lies slightly South of popular surfing beach Puerto Viejo. Here, a stunning beach and small fishing village sit inside the Gandoca Manzanillo Wildlife and Marine Refuge. It’s a great place to go when you are looking to take photos without crowds of people in them, as it is hidden away from some of the more visited locations.


If you are looking for a destination to take some great photos, Costa Rica might be the country for you. From gorgeous beaches to beautiful parks and forests, the country has a wide variety of stunning scenery.
