Costa Rica: Nature and Adventure At Its Best!
Located just 10 degrees north of the equator and ideally situated between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, this tropical paradise is a natural wonder, rich in exotic flora and fauna. With over eighteen different ecosystems found in a country the size of West Virginia, Costa Rica boasts places like a Cloud Forest, a Caribbean Humid Forest, a Dry Tropical Forest, or a Flooded Forest. Wondrous and unusual fauna like monkeys, turtles, fish, frogs, birds and insects call Costa Rica home. The land is scenic, the animals and plants fascinating, but the real heart of Costa Rica is the people.
Within its length of 51,000 square kilometers, you will always find a special place to discover. 24.6% of Costa Rican territory is protected under categories such as National Parks, Biological Reserves and National Wildlife Refuges. No other country in the world has dedicated so much of its territory to the protection of the environment. Due to its geographic position, Costa Rica is an exuberant biological bridge of botanical and zoological species. Costa Rica is a tropical country and has distinct wet and dry seasons. However, some regions are rainy all year and others are very dry and sunny.
