(Editor’s Note – This original post from December 2009 has been updated to reflect current Costa Rica vacation packages.)
Costa Rica is a peaceful and friendly little country with a thriving democracy and has been voted one of the best places in the world to live.
Costa Rica is one of those delightful places where you can enjoy your vacation whatever your preferences may be. This tropical paradise is full of pristine beaches, lush rainforests and incredible varieties of exotic flora and fauna plus rare birds and wildlife.
Costa Rica & Tourism
The number one industry in Costa Rica is tourism and for good reason; it is a safe, eco-conscious country and home to many of Mother Nature’s natural wonders including rainforests, volcanoes and the Pacific coast turtle nesting beaches. Costa Rica is bordered by Nicaragua to the north, Panama to the south, the Caribbean Ocean to the east and the warm Pacific Ocean to the west. In fact, the literal translation for Costa Rica is “Rich Coast”. Literacy in Costa Rica is very high and Costa Rica’s culture is a pleasing combination of European and Latin American influences.
Costa Rica Eco Tours
In recent years, Costa Rica eco tours have flourished thanks to Costa Rica’s continued commitment towards the preservation and conservation of its natural habitats, birds and wildlife. Over 23% of Costa Rica is now protected in wildlife refuges, reserves and national parks.
