Mother Nature was obviously feeling generous when it came to Costa Rica...
This tiny country is bestowed with impressive biodiversity and awesome landscapes. Nestled between Panama and Nicaragua on the narrow bridge of land connecting North and South America, Costa Rica is blessed with not one, but two beautiful coastlines - the wilder Pacific shoreline drawing both surfers and humpback whales alike and the Caribbean coast with gentle waters, golden beaches and nesting turtles. The country’s lush, tropical interior beckons wildlife enthusiasts and thrill-seekers alike, with birdwatching, white-water rafting and zip lining, whilst coffee aficionados can enjoy bean to cup brews with a view in the cooler climes of Costa Rica’s Central Highlands.
