The Gold Coast of Costa Rica has fantastic diving and snorkeling areas. The marine life in the area off the Pacific coast is amazing and many divers travel to the country to explore the tropical waters.
The road system has dramatically improved in Costa Rica during the last 15 years. Living in Costa Rica in my mid twenties, I was constantly traveling around the country. I had my car fall through a bridge, driven through numerous rivers, and over thousands of miles of dirt roads. Now, when I drive with my children to Costa Rica’s famous beaches and rainforests, the travel time is considerably shorter, and often down paved highways.
