Sandwiched between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans and packed with an intense array of majestic volcanoes, misty cloud forests, stunning river valleys, and gorgeous beaches, Costa Rica is an adventure lover’s paradise. More than a quarter of the country is protected rainforest and the rest is jaw-dropping combos of bubbling volcanoes, Pacific surf beaches, and laid-back towns like Quepos and Sarapiqui. Nowhere else in the world can you experience such a variety of spectacular landscapes and activities as well as delicious food and friendly people. With over 500,000 plant and animal species, Costa Rica has more biodiversity that the USA and Europe combined. Scientists have estimated that close to 4 percent of the Earth’s species live here.
Costa Rica is all about getting off the beaten path and getting outside of your comfort zone. The country may be firmly on the tourist trail, but that doesn’t make this country any less amazing.
