Get To Know Costa Rica
Costa Rica is home to a wide variety of amazing beaches, jungles, mountains, rivers, volcanoes, and many National Parks. Known as “the happiest country” where everything is “Pura Vida,” Costa Rica is the best place for you to enjoy nature and life. To give you an idea of Costa Rica’s size, it is smaller than the state of West Virginia, but even not having that much territory, this tropical country is paradise. Although Costa Rica’s official language is Spanish, part of the population also speaks English, and fewer percent speak indigenous languages. This Central American country, which capital is San Jose, has a democratic government and no army. Tourism is one of Costa Rica’s main incomes, and due to the huge amount of tourists received each year, even though the currency is the “colon,” many places accept dollars.
The West Coast of Costa Rica is very diverse, from the arid region in the North West of the country to the dense jungle of the Southern West coast; you’ll find a huge array of geography, flora, and fauna. One thing you’ll always find is jaw-dropping beaches! Everyone knows Costa Rica’s beaches are among the most beautiful ones. As it happens, Tamarindo beach is always one of the top ones on the list. But of course, we can’t leave aside the amazing animal life of this country! Whales, dolphins, manta rays, and sea turtles are just a few that you’ll regularly see on the water. On land…where to begin? Monkeys are everywhere and are just part of the “normal” daily experience, as are giant green iguanas, sloths, jungle cats, and more. These are a few animals that a person walking by the beach can find on their way. It is impossible to list all the species of animals you can find in this beautiful country.
Costa Rica takes up only 1% of the land on the entire Earth, and yet it contains over 5% of the world’s biodiversity! Being among the top 25 countries with more biodiversity in the world, you can expect to learn and enjoy many new things. It’s a breathtaking experience to take it all in, made even better by one of our naturalist guides leading the way.

This is definitely pure life, or as said by Costa Rican people, “Pura Vida.”
