Welcome to Costa Rica
Somewhere between Nicaragua and Panama there is a piece of land that separates Pacific and Caribbean Sea. That’s Costa Rica – a small fragment of world, which successfully resists today’s civilization, and offers nature that hasn’t changed for a thousands of years. Welcome to the land that spreads at the foot of the volcano, among hummingbirds and orchids.
Costa Rica is a country of jungle, mountains, two beautiful ocean coasts and sandy beaches with nature showcasing a variety of sceneries and microclimates. If you are looking for some adrenaline, you’ll certainly find it here. Possibilities are versatile: trekking, zip-lines through the tropical treetops, and rafting. You can also admire the moonlit landscapes around the Iraz volcano, go through the rain forests, practice scuba diving or drive to the heart of savanna. Adventure is the biggest advantage of Costa Rica. Most of the country is covered in forests and mountains but there’re a few small cities and the capital – San Jose.
Located 1657 meters above sea level (5437 feet) there is inactive Arenal Volcano which is a destination for many tourists.
It is a place of cloud forests and coffee plantations, monkeys, mist, and friendly locals. The town of Santa Elena is small and quaint, filled with tasty restaurants and folksy artisan shops, while the nearby rainforest hosts a remarkable amount of biodiversity.
