Overview

Costa Rica should be considered one of the world's rarest jewels.

A small country packed with more beauty than almost any on earth. Tropical rainforests and beautiful beaches, active volcanoes, windswept mountaintops, cloud forests and a high density of wildlife make Costa Rica an exciting, wild, adventurous and exotic destination.

Costa Rica is also the most stable country in Latin America and its stunning scenery is an ever-changing collage.

On its western border, the mighty Pacific crashes against rocky outcrops in sharp contrast to its eastern coast, where tranquil Caribbean beaches will soothe your nerves.

Mountains run through the heart of the country and extend almost continuously from the northwest to the southeast corners. From coast to coast, Costa Rica is dotted with numerous wildlife reserves, lakes, rivers and dramatic natural scenery.

For a country that is slightly smaller than the state of West Virginia, Costa Rica is blessed with more natural beauty than almost any country on earth. Wherever you visit in Costa Rica, you are guaranteed an unforgettable experience.

This guide is presented to highlight some of Costa Rica's beauty and provide some insight to assist you in planning your vacation.

Location:
Central America, bordered by the Caribbean Sea on the East and the North Pacific Ocean on the west, Nicaragua to the North and Panama to the South.
