Think about a rain forest paradise in the heart of Central America and you will have Costa Rica. This magnificent place is unique and unpredictable. Spreading from the Caribbean to the Pacific, the country is home to several interesting species of animals and insects. It is the perfect place to explore if you are a lover of adventures because the land will never bore you. From forest hikes to volcanic expeditions and beach trips you can track it all.
When visiting, nomads need to be aware of the nature and wildlife as almost quarter of the territory of the country is a protected jungle. Known as the largest city, San José should be a definite stop on your trip. Try to befriend some of the ticas and ticos (this is how the locals refer to one another) while you're there and maybe even learn a bit of their language. But there is so much more we can learn from Costa Ricans - they use renewable energy to produce nearly 99% of its electricity, which is something we deeply admire!
Costa Rica will have you fall in love with everything it has to offer simply because it lives and breathes beauty. If you travel to the Caribbean coast you can witness the sun rise and set all in the same day - quite a rare sight to have the privilege to see.
