Costa Rica Travel
Costa Rica travel activities and flora & fauna
Wondering where to go in the Caribbean? Should you go to the northern
or southern Caribbean? Which of its islands to choose? Why not try the world of great tropical adventure that Costa
Rica travel offers? Here's a brief overview of this lush tropical paradise.
Costa Rica island
A Costa Rica travel offers you
active volcano exploration, wild animals, lush rainforests, and great beaches. On one of the ultimate paradises
left untouched on this planet, there are no military, no nuclear power plants, lots of culture to offer, and no
winter. A democratic society, Costa Rica is known as one of the most peaceful in the world. The last civil war was
in 1948, and since then, armed forces have been abolished and the country has been able to avoid such dangers as
despotic dictatorships, military coups, terrorism, and all other forms of internal strife.
Not only that, a Costa Rica travel guarantees you a friendly
atmosphere wherever part of the country you choose to visit.
Costa Rican Flora and Fauna
The name literally means "rich
coast" but Costa Rica is rich for far more than its coast. The country is replete with incredible natural beauties
and many species of animals, some of them extremely rare and can only be seen if you go on a Costa Rica
The flora biodiversity alone is made up of well over 10,000 species
of vascular plants and beautiful flowers. And as for tree species, almost 2,000 have been recorded in this small
country in Latin America. This makes a Costa Rica travel even more exciting, with such fascinating and endless
number of natural habitat for various flora and fauna.
Besides land mammals and birds that would make any sane eco-tourism
enthusiast go ga-ga over, Costa Rica is also home to 835 species of fish, of which 700 are saltwater fish. Anglers
and fishers are going to have an awesome time dipping their poles in Costa Rica’s clear, azure waters to hook any
one of these tropical fish species.
But if we focus a minute on the northwest region of Costa Rica,
called Guanacaste, where most of the Costa Rica travelers go nowadays because of the wide variety of scenery and
activities offered, you will realize that there are so many more types of tours you can take. If you want to get
really close to Costa Rica and actually see all these wonderful trees, plants, flowers, animals, and fish, then a
Costa Rica travel is all you need.
Costa Rica Travel Activities
There is a wide range of activities
to choose from on your Costa Rica travel. Most of these depend on the part of the country in which you are
vacationing. In the rainforest and you like birds, then bird watching walks with well-informed English-speaking
guides or horseback riding are the type of Costa Rica travel tours you should take.
You can also take one of those canopy tours, which are popular all
over Costa Rica. But if you want the richest and best experience in Costa Rica’s rainforests, then avoid those that
go through areas which are north towards the west. Here, the climates are dryer so naturally the vegetation lacks
some of its beautiful richness in both density and color. Nonetheless, you will find Costa Rica travel a rich
experience, living up to its name of "rich coast".
