Costa Rica is a small haven of tranquility bordered by the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Costa Rica is rich in flora and fauna, which gathers an astonishing 6% of the planet’s biodiversity. The country is small, but boasts an incredible array of landscapes and ecosystems. With active and dormant volcanoes, lush jungle, crystal clear rivers and waterfalls, clean air, spectacular seabeds and fauna, Costa Rica is a prime ecotourism destination.
National parks and reserves
25% of Costa Rica’s territory is protected by the status of national park or nature reserve. The country counts 27 national parks, 3 of them listed in the Unesco’s World Heritage list: Guanacaste National Park, Isla del Coco national park and Parque la Amistad (which is shared with Panama). The 58 refuges, 32 protected areas, 15 protected mangrove and swamp areas, 11 forest reserves and 8 biological reserves are also part of Costa Rica’s natural treasures.
Costa Rica is a shelter for one of the richest biodiversities on Earth. 850 (incl. 7 endemic) bird species, an incredible variety of mammals, aquatic fauna of approximately 130 species of tropical fish, an abundance of amphibians (incl. 150 species of multicolored frogs), 220 species of reptiles and a world of insects all call Costa Rica home.
Costa Rica has more than 1500 kilometers of beaches along its two coasts, most of them deserted and pristine. White or black sands, clear waters, coconut trees and multi-colored crabs will adorn your perfect postcard-like photos. Most, if not all of them, are also protected by coastline preservation laws.
Costa Rica is listed as one of the top 10 destinations in the world for adventurers and adrenaline lovers. The country is famous for its zip-lines (a local invention), its world-class rafting down the river Pacuare, buggy tours, kayaking, hiking and sky-trekking, to name just a few
