Costa Rica

Costa Rica boasts 210 species of mammals, around 878 species of birds, and 218 of reptiles; 800 miles of coastline; and year-round average temperatures in the 70s. Go hiking in rain forests, laze on a golden beach, and get closer than you ever imagined to the country’s extraordinary wildlife—from colorful butterflies and frogs to four types of monkeys, sloths, jaguars and tapirs. A volcanic mountain chain runs down the spine of Costa Rica, creating a wonderland of cones, craters, lagoons, boiling mud pools, and hot springs. The vast coastline means superlative snorkeling and diving. Enjoy the amenities of an all-inclusive resort on the beach, with countless ways to explore all the natural wonders of this rare environment.
