Best Solo Travel Cities in Costa Rica

Costa Rica only has one real city: the capital, San José. Besides that, there are plenty of colorful beach towns, which make for perfect solo travel destinations. Staying in the city may not be the first thing that springs to mind when thinking about a trip to Costa Rica, but think again. These beach towns make for a great base from which to explore the country's natural richness, while simultaneously enjoying the conveniences and liveliness of the town and beach.

  • 1. San José

    This isn't just the country's biggest city, but also the country's cultural capital. The city's charm lies in its plentiful art galleries, great museums, fine restaurants, vibrant clubs, splendid parks, and rustic markets. The historical neighborhood of Barrio Amón is a highlight not to be missed.

  • 2. Jaco

    As one of Costa Rica's most developed beach towns, Jaco offers plenty of shops, restaurants, and accommodations. The town is popular with backpackers and has a booming nightlife. If you're looking for a party, Jaco is the place to go.

  • 3. Santa Teresa

    This former fisherman's village turned into a buzzing beach town attracts a crowd of surfers and beach lovers throughout the year. The beaches are perfect for relaxing and sunset gazing, but there are also plenty of opportunities for getting active: go stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, hiking, or ziplining.

  • 4. Dominical

    This gorgeous and relatively quiet beach town is frequented by surfers and known for its consistent waves. The town provides easy access to various waterfalls, national parks, and wildlife sanctuaries. Cozy bars, restaurants, and local artisan shops line the cobblestone road along the shore.

  • 5. Montezuma
