Costa Rica Off The Beaten Path: 156 reviews and 192 photos
Nature is Costa Rica's best tour. No matter how long it takes to get to the remotest reserve, or how close to the city a national park is, no matter how few facilities there are at the site, nature will be there to overwhelm you with its peacefulness and beauty.
Geologically, Costa Rica is a three million-year-old bridge, a pathway actually between the two American continental masses. This makes Costa Rica a special place, allowing the movement of species from one continent to another and the creation of an incredibly diverse flora and fauna.
Thousands of species have found the right habitat in this small tropical country. Numbers fail to completely represent its biological diversity, but you can try imagining well over 500,000 species of flora and fauna (representing approximately 5% of all species known to exist on earth) living together in a country of only 51,000 square kilometers.
