About Costa Rica

Spectacular natural beauty and peaceful atmosphere attract over 2 million visitors to Costa Rica annually. Nine active volcanoes, diverse forest environments, hot springs, wetlands, lakes, island reserves and 966 kilometers (600 miles) of beaches on two coasts account for the dramatic increase in tourism over the last decade. Costa Rica's varied terrain provides endless possibilities for activities ranging from hiking and white water rafting through national parks to surfing, snorkeling and scuba diving off the Pacific and Caribbean shores.

The odds of seeing wildlife are greater in Costa Rica than anywhere else in the world. The country is home to 1,240 species of butterflies, 845 species of birds, 250 mammal classifications, 160 amphibian categories, 218 types of reptiles and 1,013 varieties of fresh and salt water fish, including several endemic species found nowhere else on the planet. Costa Rica is also the world leader in terms of protected areas, with 25.58% of its land mass designated as national parks or reserves.

Costa Rica is well known for the premium that it places on peace, education and democracy, and is often referred to as 'the Switzerland of Central America'. In 1949, the government abolished the army, allocating all would-be military expenses to education and health care. As a direct result, the literacy rate rose to 95% and still continues to be one of the highest rates in the World.

International ports on both coasts; air, ocean and freight transportation services; a well-developed infrastructure and a strategic location at the crossroads of two continents make Costa Rica a contender in world markets. The government's receptiveness toward new business ventures and excellent incentive plans have lured a growing number of multinational corporations to the country.

Combine its political stability and year round spring-like weather in the Central Valley (72 degrees average), the friendly people who actually like Americans and it is easy to see why Costa Rica has become tops on the list of expatriate havens.  There are more Americans living there per capita than any other country outside theU.S.  The country has become modernized and occupies a place somewhere between the first and third world, so Americans should feel right at home. 

Whether your interest is business or pleasure, you'll find Costa Rica a country of unequalled beauty, with friendly people, a high standard of living and an interesting blend of local and foreign cultures that truly make it the jewel of Central America.
