About Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a strip of dense tropical forests and active volcanoes between the Caribbean Sea and Pacific Ocean. It is home to more than 30,000 species of wildlife. Birds displaying a range of colors, charming “Howler” monkeys, interesting frogs, butterflies, and along its coasts, migrating whales, are all part of this exciting destination. Costa Rica is filled with endless possibilities for the adventurous traveler. The mountain areas are great for hiking, white water rafting, biking and touring the national parks. On the coasts, the equatorial sun warms the beaches to a near-perfect temperature for surfing, fishing, kayaking, horseback riding and lounging in a hammock with a cool drink and a good book.

Costa Rica is the most politically stable country in Latin America with a democratic government that has become ever-more environmentally conscious of the country’s natural resources. Over a quarter of it’s forests are protected. It’s no wonder tourism has become a major economic factor in the Costa Rican economy. Other major components to their economy are the export of bananas, pineapples, and coffee. The literacy rate is over 90% with the government supporting a high level of education and health care.
