Why travel to Costa Rica?
Few places in the world present, within such a small and
accessible area, so much natural diversity, so many species
of plants and animals as Costa Rica. It is a relatively small country,
only 51,100 square kilometers, but when you travel to
Costa Rica you will be surprised to see how many unique
experiences it can offer. An
impressive 24.6 percent of its territory is
protected under status of 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.
Costa Rica is an oasis of calm
among its turbulent neighbors and an ecotourism heaven,
making it one of the best places to experience the
tropics with minimal impact. It's also mostly coastline,
which means great surfing, beaches galore and a climate
built for laziness. If you are not the lazy kind, Costa
Rica also offers plenty of more physical activities:
world class fishing, Canopy tours, hiking,
visiting active volcanoes, surfing, and scuba
diving, to name just a few.
The weather is
pleasant all year, which stimulates a peaceful life
among its residents and allows tourists to explore and
venture out without worrying about anything other than
taking advantage of accessible trips and relatively
short distances – less than one day between regions.
