With the Pacific on one side and the Caribbean on the other, this small country has gained popularity since the 1980’s due mainly to its well established system of national parks, protected areas, as well as its rich variety of flora and fauna. Over 2 million tourists visited Costa Rica in 2010, making it one of our top destinations. Of those 2 million 47% engaged in activities related to ecotourism; the other percentage visited for adventure!
A pioneer in the ecotourism industry, Costa Rica has 3 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, 7 natural wonders, multiple national parks, volcanoes and beaches.
Costa Rica’s territorial division includes 7 provinces, which are: San José (the political and economic center of the country), Alajuela, Cartago, Heredia, Guanacaste, Puntarenas, and Limón.
The Pacific Ring of Fire
Costa Rica´s volcanoes are among the most mesmerizing in the world. One of them is Arenal Volcano, listed among the 10 most active volcanoes in the world and for a good reason: It regularly puts on a spectacle, showing off with strong rumbling sounds and occasional rock avalanches, as well as smoke, ash and lava eruptions that descend its slope at speeds reaching 70 kilometers per hour and temperatures reaching 1,000 degrees Celsius.
In Costa Rica you could spend weeks on an adventure. You can trek through the rainforest, witness volcano’s, dive in one of the most raved about places, visit local legends, marvels of fire, unique wildlife, flora and fauna or visit Coco Island where pirates used to hide out.
Don’t miss the Canopy Tour!
Born in Costa Rica in the 90s, the canopy tour is the closest experience to enable one to feel like a monkey travelling in the tree tops.
The elderly of the Nicoya Peninsula in Southern Guanacaste, many of whom are in their nineties, are among the most long-lived people in the world. Costa Rica is considered a “blue zone”. The phenomenon of longevity drew the attention of writer Dan Buettner, founder of Bluezones.com. His mission is to identify what he terms “blue zones,” or areas of greater longevity around the globe; not only areas where people live longer, but also where they seem to enjoy better health than those who live in surrounding areas.
