Costa Rica is a natural treasure with an incredibly rich and diverse array of plant and animal life. Join us to explore the volcanoes, cloud forests, and rainforests of this remarkable land. Costa Rica’s natural heritage is one of astonishing diversity. Bordered by the Caribbean and the Pacific, its coastline rises abruptly to volcanic mountains that run the length of the country. The sheer variety is amazing for a country of just 20,000 square miles. In the same day, 12,000-foot mountains, cloud forests, lowland rain forests, mangrove swamps, palm-lined beaches, dry tropical forest, and savannah, can all be experienced.
This diversity is reflected in its rich plant and animal life. There are more species of birds here than in all of North America. Among its mammals are two-toed and three-toed sloths, and four species of monkeys. Reptiles and amphibians include the strawberry poison dart frog, the endangered American crocodile, and the basilisk lizard, which can actually run across water. There are more butterflies in Costa Rica than on the entire continent of Africa. The plant life is spectacular, including a dazzling variety of trees and orchids.
All of this is being wisely protected in an excellent system of national parks and reserves that has won praise from conservationists around the world. The government has set aside thirteen national parks, eight biological reserves, three wildlife refuges, and other areas that now comprise one fourth of the country’s land area.
