Costa Ricans have a much used saying: 'Pura Vida' or Pure Life and it is not hard to see why. Costa Rica is a paradise containing 6% of the world's biodiversity, thousands of miles of Caribbean and Pacific Ocean Beaches fringed by pristine rainforest.
Costa Rica's misty cloud forests buzz with hummingbirds, deep Ocean swells lap the shores of pristine Pacific Beaches, Volcanoes poke their heads above the clouds and brightly coloured Macaws, Toucans and Poison Dart frogs compete for your attention.
Whilst Costa Rica is undoubtedly a huge draw for wildlife lovers, it is its status as a haven of world class eco lodges, zip lining, rafting and surfing that it truly comes alive. Where else in the world can you raft into a luxury 5* eco lodge one day and then learn to surf in the warm Pacific ocean the next?
