Tranquil Costa Rica is ecologically and wildlife-rich, its ecosystems diverse, its jungly Atlantic and Pacific coastlines remote and unspoiled. Cloud forests of mossy trees, flitting hummingbirds and delicate orchids are home to jaguar, tapir and quetzal. Volcano valleys with waterfalls and hot springs join mangrove swamps where frogs, caiman, crocs and manatees dwell. Twenty five percent of the country is nature reserve. To holiday in Costa Rica is to be at one with nature and you can get as active as you want – whether that’s hiking, rafting, zip lining or simply spending time in the forests in quiet meditation.
