As the capital city of Iceland, Reykjavik is the country's largest city and most populated city. Because of this and its great location on the western coast of the country, Reykjavik is a great stop for anyone visiting Iceland. It is perfect to be a base camp during your time in Iceland while you take day trips to the many nearby destinations. If you need more ideas on places to see that make great day trips from Reykjavik, check out my post of the Best of Western Iceland! But if you want to just stay in Reykjavik, I don't blame you, there is so much to do in see just in this city!
Iceland has quickly become a very popular travel destination, and for a great reason. The country is not very large at all, so it attracts many adventure travelers that spend a few weeks exploring the whole island, but it also is great for shorter trips. I spent a little longer than a week in Iceland and explored all over western Iceland. Since the main airport to Iceland is located on the west coast, along with Iceland's capital city Reykjavik, adventuring around western Iceland is a perfect introduction to the country and great for those who only have a short time to visit the country.
After an unforgettable time in La Fortuna, we were ready to experience our next location, Monteverde! The little town of Monteverde is a beautiful small hilly town that that gains it's main tourism from the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve that is located right next to the main town. If you visit this Monteverde for no other reason than visiting the Cloud Forest, you will be very happy! The Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve was our main attraction to this area of Costa Rica, but don't count out this small town, it does have a lot to offer too!
