Costa Rica, which translates literally as «Rich Coast», is a country in Central America, bordered by Nicaragua to the north, Panama to the east and south, the Pacific Ocean to the west and south and the Caribbean Sea to the east. The Republic of Costa Rica is a small country, it has a great biological and habitat diversity due to the convergence of two hemispheres, two oceans, and its varying geography. Costa Rica has the 2nd oldest democracy in the world and is one of the most politically stable countries since abolishing the army in 1948 to fund free education and health care.
Tourism in Costa Rica is one of the fastest growing economic sectors of the country. Costa Rica became a popular nature travel destination, and its main competitive advantage is its well-established system of national parks and protected areas, covering around 23.4% of the country’s land.
The protected areas are open to the public and gives you an excellent opportunity to view many animals as sloths, fascinating caimans, magnificent sea turtles, beautiful butterflies, exotic birds, impressive reptiles and monkeys swinging in the trees.
