Adventures in the Birthplace of Tropical Ecotourism
Costa Rica Overview
Long before ecotourism became a thing, Costa Rica was providing visitors with a spectacular range of nature-themed adventures and experiences. Today, the country where it all got started is still an A-list destination for rafters, hikers, birders, zip-liners, scuba divers, surfers, fishermen and even those who just want to chill out on the beach. Vacationers can choose from luxurious beach resorts, intimate inns and rustic jungle lodges, and travel between mountain venues and coastal retreats on a network of first-class roads. The country's natural treasures are preserved in a network of national parks. All this, in a country that is safe, stable and welcoming.
