The natural beauties of Costa Rica are so varied and extensive that almost 30% of their territory is occupied by protected areas (parks, reserves, etc.), which is the highest percentage in the world. Costa Rica has 5% of the total flora and fauna species of the planet with 12,000 types of plants and 850 species of birds which puts it in the number one ranking in the world for lovers of ecological tourism.
A small country in size but large in travel offers its tourist many trails through endless forests, volcanoes full of life and craters, 1,290 km coastal borders from the Caribbean Sea on the east and the Pacific Ocean on the west.
