About Costa Rica
If you have a love of nature, spectacular landscapes and outdoor adventure, then Costa Rica is the place for you. The country has deservedly earned its reputation as one of the world’s best destinations for a wildlife holiday, with an impressive 25% of the country now protected national reserves. Clad with dense rainforests and rolling cloud forests, lush mangroves and both Pacific & Caribbean coastlines, Costa Rica boasts some impressive wildlife statistics, despite its diminutive size. It is home to 5% of the world’s biodiversity, which includes over 800 species of bird, 250 species of mammal and even a quarter of the world’s recorded butterfly species. A genuine commitment to preserving the environment means you can enjoy an intense wildlife experience whilst still leaving minimal impact (even the country’s main domestic airline is proudly carbon-neutral). This is not somewhere you go to discover ancient ruins or colonial cities – towns and ‘people-made’ things are simply not what Costa Rica is about. You go to completely immerse yourself in the country’s wildlife, volcanic scenery, get a dose of adventure, and then unwind after it all on a jungle-fringed beach.
