Costa Rica

Last Updated: 24 December 2017
Containing about five percent of the world’s species, beautiful Costa Rica is one of the most bio-diverse countries in the world. It is flanked by the Pacific Ocean on one side and the Caribbean on the other. The sandy beaches attract surfers and sports fishermen whilst the tropical fish that swim in the rich surrounding waters beckon divers.

About a quarter of the land is under forest, and under government protection. This is a nature lover’s paradise. The steamy rain and cloud forests are filled with colourful birds such as macaws, and animals as diverse as sloths, anteaters, spider monkeys and howler monkeys. Visitors can get up close to these animals by hiking on the canopy walks that crisscross the forest treetops then they can zipline down and hike amongst the trees.
