Costa Rica

Costa Rica, a nature lover’s paradise

The Costa Rica or “Rich Coast” is located in Central America between Nicaragua in the north and Panama in the south. Costa Rica has two coasts: to the Caribbean in the east and to the Pacific in the west. Between those two seas lies volcanoes, fertile high valleys with coffee and fruit plantations and tropical rainforest. Costa Rica is the favorite destination for narure tourism lovers: this green eden of majestic rainforests, spectacular beaches and breathtaking natural waterfalls has a totally unspoiled nature ! One third of Costa Rica is classified as a nature reserve and is home to half a million animal and insects species. The Costa Ricans describe their happy everyday life as “pura vida” or pure life… Here, people and their environment are trying to find a balance.
