Best Places to Visit in Costa Rica
This country is slightly smaller than Lake Michigan, taking up only 0.03% of the planet’s surface, and yet contains a whopping 5% of its biodiversity. Apart from 800 miles of gorgeous coastline, more than 25% of its interior is comprised of national parks and protected areas, boasting 10% of the world’s butterfly species and 52 species of Hummingbirds. Of its 121 volcanoes, the mighty Arenal and the majestic 2-crater Poas are a must-see. Cloud forests, rain forests, natural beauty, wildlife and pristine surfer-beaches, that is Costa Rica in a nutshell. They also aim to be carbon-neutral by 2021, and love to beat the tropical heat with inventive ice-cream flavours like goat cheese.
