Explore one of the finest ecotourism and wildlife destinations in the world
Costa Rica is one of the finest ecotourism destinations in the world with an amazing mixture of coastal, both Caribbean and Pacific; upland and volcanic; valley and forest and wetland environments. The list of mammals to spot in Costa Rica is impressive and includes the rare predators jaguar and ocelot, as well as sloth, tapir, armadillo, peccary and more, and this does not take into account seasonal whale-watching off the Pacific coast in May and June. However, it is the birdlife which draws many visitors. The country boasts over 850 species, including lots of regional endemics. Combining all these elements of landscape, fauna and flora with opportunities for R&R on superb beaches, makes Costa Rica a hard-to-beat holiday destination for the serious traveller.
