Costa Rica Tourism

Far, far away from city life, lost somewhere in the dense jungles and uneven terrain lies Costa Rica. A naturalist’s paradise… But its not all leafy and green, San Jose the capital of Costa Rica could be just another North American city with its departmental stores and streets lined with fast food restaurants. But the urban character of the city ends at its corners. Visit the interiors to get acquainted to the real Costa Rica.

There’s much to explore in this country with its dripping cloud forest, belching volcanoes and sprawling parks. A fair part of the country is inhabited by the Ticos (or locals) but it is also home to a variety of wildlife.

Bug-phobists look out! There are about 7, 50,000 species of insects that live in Costa Rica, including about 20,000 different types of spiders!

Driving is a jeopardizing task as the country’s roads record numerous accidents in a month. If you come across a big yellow heart with a crack in it painted on the road of Costa Rica- means someone has died in a road accident which are very common on the roads. So be extremely careful and drive cautiously.
