Costa Rica

With lush rainforests, bubbling volcanoes and colourful wildlife, Costa Rica is a paradise for nature lovers. Located in Central America, the diversity in this small country is breathtaking with verdant valleys and tropical rainforests hosting 5% of the world’s biodiversity including ficus trees, orchids, jaguars and monkeys. Costa Rica is also one of the world’s best places for birdwatching, with dozens of species of parrots, hummingbirds and falcons. In addition, Costa Rica is blessed with outstanding beaches on the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, which provide the perfect opportunities for snorkelling, diving, fishing and surfing.
