About Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a small country located in Central America, specifically between Nicaragua and Panama, with several geographical and topographical privileges, among them, the fact of having many kilometers of coastline on both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea.


In addition, its geography is constantly changing, with several peninsulas such as Nicoya, Osa, and Santa Elena, abundant bays, coves and river mouths, volcanic mountain ranges with many active volcanoes, all within a small territory of less than 52,000 square kilometers.  This gives us the possibility of going from one microclimate to another in a matter of minutes, and at the same time explains our enormous diversity of flora and fauna.

We have long sandy beaches, and some other small and rocky beaches, islands, islets, as well as the most impressive collection of forest types, including tropical dry forest, tropical rain forest and cloud forest, as well as several other categories in between. Costa Rica's topography is equally imposing, and contributes even more valueto the amount of diversity and diversification of landscapes. Ranges of hills, high mountain ranges and many volcanoes divide the country into various types of climate, the Caribbean being opposite of the Pacific.


Hidden valleys, long basins of imposing rivers, endless plains, and hot springs that spring naturally from the earth, are some of the landscapes that can be appreciated in Costa Rica.
