Welcome to Costa Rica! Costa Rica is a natural bridge between North and South America that is the reason why it has one of the largest bio diversities of the world. It has 12 distinctive ecological zones ranging from cloud forests, rainforests, mangroves, dry forests and so on. These forests offer different types of habitats with an incredible diversity of plants and animals species. The country is home to over 880 bird species, 9000 recorded species of plants, 200 mammals, 2000 butterflies, 50 species of hummingbirds, 150 species of amphibians and much more. It is the perfect destination for those who wish to combine nature with some adventure and beach relaxation.

 

Another reason to visit Costa Rica is its people "Ticos," as Costa Rican's are known, are generally very open and very friendly towards visitors.

 

Volcanoes - Costa Rica has 110 volcanoes and 5 remain active. Most of them can be visited and some have access to the main crater.

Beaches – Costa Rica has more than 600 miles of unspoiled tropical beaches both in the Caribbean and in the Pacific.

Nature – you can walk just for one hour in a national park and see a huge amount of wild life that you will not see in any other place in Central America.

Diversity – in just minutes driving you can experience changes in climate, temperature, forest, development and landscape. Just driving, in the morning you can be 11000 feet high and in the afternoon be at sea level.

Sustainability - Costa Rica is a country really committed to conservation of their natural resources and protects 40% of their territory in national parks, biological and wildlife reserves, visitors will have the opportunity to experience communities that sponsor and are active in promoting sustainable practices with the environment.

Adventure – Costa Rica means Adventure: Whitewater rafting, kayaking, rappelling, hiking, horseback riding, snorkeling, canopy, ballooning, and much more.
