Costa Rica Travel Guide

How do you describe Costa Rica, a country with so many natural treasures? Perhaps the best way to start would be with its name, which means "the rich coast".

"Coast" comes first, not only because it is the first word in the name, but also because this part of Central America is bordered by two long, sinuous coasts with kilometres of idyllic beaches: the eastern side is bathed by the Caribbean Sea with its many coral reefs, and the western side by the calm, vast Pacific Ocean.

And the region between these coasts can only be described as "rich". Since it is located on the isthmus separating the Americas, Costa Rica is the natural habitat for many species of flora and fauna found in both northern and southern continents. The microclimates of its mountains and rivers, valleys and plains, and dry tropical and rainforests favour the existence and continual growth of this abundant plant and animal life. In its lush vegetation, you can smell the heady scent of flowers, hear the birds whose songs are as lovely as their plumage, see multicoloured butterflies fluttering through the fields, and glimpse endangered species in the forest: Costa Rica's natural beauty is mesmerizing. However, its culture and people are just as fascinating, the warm and welcoming Ticos have contributed greatly to Latin American society.
