Caribbean Coast, Costa Rica – Vacation Packages
The “Little Switzerland of Central America” has a strong democracy and the highest standard of living on the continent. Thankfully its conservation program is also one of the most aggressive, for although Costa Rica is a small country, its bio-diversity is staggering. While laying claim oto only .03% of the world’s land mass, the small Central American country contains 6% of the globe’s bio-diversity. In cloud forests resplendent with ferns, palms and dazzling orchids, hummingbirds and butterflies flit from blossom to blossom, and there are more species of birds than in all of North America.
The province of Limon has some of the most striking natural scenery and is an important fishing area. Its people are characterized by their afro-Caribbean culture, folklore and cuisine. The Caribbean is famous for its Tortuguero Channels, where turtle nesting can be observed at various times throughout the year. This small country draws more visitors than any of its neighbors, with a well developed tourism infrastructure and breathtaking natural beauty.
