Explore a tropical haven between the Pacific and the Caribbean
The small country of Costa Rica is one of the most ecologically diverse places on Earth. A nature-lover’s paradise, Costa Rica’s landscapes range from smouldering volcanoes, cloud forests and coffee plantations to pristine rainforests and beautiful beaches on the Caribbean and Pacific coasts.
National parks and reserves protect more than a quarter of this small country’s territory and its incredible biodiversity, including thousands of plant varieties, numerous kinds of colourful butterflies and more than 800 bird species. The country’s relatively small size allows for easy explorations by road or using one of the domestic airlines that link the capital, San José, in the highlands to the often remote coastal areas.
An abundance of unspoilt beaches backed by tropical jungle enables a combination of various activities with relaxation.
