About Costa Rica

Costa Rica touches the heart and mind through its incredible natural beauty and its gracious people. No one feels a stranger here for long. It is one of the most biologically diverse countries in the world, a treasure house of flora and fauna unequaled within such a small area. Travelers fall under the spell of this natural wonderland with its tropical forests, rushing rivers, exotic animals, high mountains and impressive volcanoes. Come and visit the many national parks, famous throughout the world.

Costa Rica is known around the world for its national park system, now protecting around 25% of its total area. It is a country without an army. The national hero is not a general but a young, barefoot Campesino (country person). It has one of the highest literacy rates in Latin America and a Social Security system that offers health care to its entire population. Costa Ricans like to say they have gained through evolution what other countries try to attain through revolution.
