With multiple habitats and micro-habitats, in a wide variety of ecosystems, Costa Rica is home to 877 different species of birds. The main reasons for this diversity seems to be the climatic influence of both coasts, many different and diverse geographic formations such as high mountains, valleys, extensive lowlands, lakes, estuaries, gulfs, and mangroves.
Costa Rica is famous for its hospitality and dedication to preserving their natural resources. Indeed, Costa Rica is home to dozens of national parks and has been leading the way in Latin America for decades on sustainable tourism, carbon offset programs, and more.
The Osa Peninsula is a gem that is not to be missed on a trip to Costa Rica, nor is the Sarapiquí region and the location of the Tirimbina Rainforest Center. Both give you the opportunity to get away from crowds and into the tranquility of the forest.
