FUN FOR ALL THE FAMILY
Costa Rica’s diverse natural environment makes it the ideal adventure playground for kids. The enchanting wildlife is endlessly fascinating for both children and adults, there are ecosystems of all kinds, from mangrove-clad to mountainous, and the country is bursting with opportunity for adventure in the form of white water rafting, zip lining and trekking to waterfalls.
It may only cover 0.03 per cent of Earth’s surface area, but Costa Rica accounts for five per cent of the planet’s biodiversity. It’s got tumbling waterfalls, simmering volcanoes, untouched beaches and cloud-strewn forests. Sloths hang from treetops peering at passers-by, hummingbirds flit from flower to flower, turtles haul themselves in from the ocean, and chattering monkeys leap from branch to branch.
NATIONAL PARKS GALORE
Over a quarter of the land is protected in Costa Rica. Hike through the rainforests of Arenal National Park as its namesake volcano looms ominously in the background; stroll along the sands of Manuel Antonio National Park’s emerald-edged beaches; and canoe through the canals and wetlands of Tortuguero National Park, spotting dozens of species of birds, amphibians and mammals.
SAND AND SEA
It’s not all rainforest adventures here; the country boasts a wealth of beaches, from white-sand paradises where you can snorkel and sunbathe, to swathes of black-sand kissed by dancing waves. The country’s dazzling biodiversity extends beyond the shoreline – beneath the turquoise waters you’ll spot colourful fish, coral reef, manta rays, octopus and even dolphins and whales.
