Costa Rica stands out as one of the most delightful tropical countries in the world with unsurpassed natural beauty. Abundant with rain forests, raging rivers, pristine beaches and fiery, towering volcanoes, Costa Rica is known for its large variety of natural habitats which are protected by the best developed conservation program in Latin America. Visitors have an excellent opportunity to see many tropical animals including monkeys, sloths, caymans, sea turtles and exotic birds. With luck, rare and elusive animals, such as jaguars, tapirs, and harpy eagles can be glimpsed as well.

With both Caribbean and Pacific coasts, Costa Rica boasts miles of beautiful beaches. While some attract many tourists, others are remote and rarely visited. Costa Rica’s active volcanoes are another dramatic natural highlight. Costa Rica has several exquisite and intimate rain forest lodges as well as attractive beach front accommodations. With a multitude of activities, such as rain forest canopy walks, river rafting, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, mountain biking, fishing, golfing and trekking, Costa Rica is an adventure seeker’s delight.
