About

Known as the “Rich Coast,” Costa Rica hosts about 5% of the world’s biodiversity, more than the U.S. and Europe combined. With sweeping rainforest, rugged mountains, fire-spitting volcanoes and lonesome beaches stretching along jungle-shores, Costa Rica is home to a dizzying array of wildlife. About the same size as West Virginia, Costa Rica has the advantage of being small enough to explore end to end in a matter of days.
