Costa Rica - Map

Travel to Costa Rica for a taste of nature in its purest form. As it was lacking in gold supply and had a scant indigenous population, it was one of the least exploited Spanish colonies, to the delight of lovers of untouched places. Secluded beaches and dense jungles will make any traveller to Costa Rica feel like a real explorer. If you are looking for biodiversity, you will find your paradise here, as will thrillseekers. The “ticos”, as the Costa Ricans are known, have developed a solid active tourism market from their exuberant landscapes. The canopy tours are especially popular, networks of suspended walkways and zip-lines which take you through the treetops. In other words, a tour of the clouds. In the holiday season in Costa Rica, diving is popular from the beaches of Guanacaste, the Nicoya Peninsula or the islands of Caño and Coco. You can also see the vents of the Rincón de la Vieja volcano up close or lose yourself in the depths of the Corcovado National Park. As they say here, trips to Costa Rica are “pura vida”.
