About Travel Costa Rica

Costa Rica, a central American country, is one of the most beautiful travel destinations in the world. The democratic republic, located between Panama and Nicaragua is more than 50,000 km² (5 ha) large and is subdivided into seven provinces: the region around the capital city, San José as well as the provinces Alajuela, Cartago, Heredia, Guanacaste, Puntarenas and Limón. There are around 5.5 million inhabitants living in Costa Rica.

Climate and Nature

Costa Rica is one of the countries that have the largest protected area in the world. Around one fourth of the country are protected natural areas, turning the country into a genuine paradise with various ecological systems and countless animal and plant species. In total, there are five different climate zones in the country: dry and rain forests, a moderate climatic zone, a tropical cooling zone and wasteland. Embedded between two oceans, the country presents a very complex geography. While both the Caribbean and Pacific coast have paradise-like landscapes, a 500 km (311 mi) long mountain chain stretches from border to border. The landscapes are varied and offer anything from impressive volcanoes to smooth hill landscapes, which rivers and streams spring up from. Cerro Chirripó, the highest elevation of the country, is 3,820 m (12,532 ft) high. Throughout the year, the average temperature fluctuates between 14° and 22° C (57° and 72° F). While the “summer” (dry season) lasts from December to April, the “winter” (rain season) lasts from May to November.
