Spanish for « Rich Coast », Costa Rica well deserves its name as it offers people on vacation all kinds of richness, starting with the warm welcoming of the locals, the « ticos ». Located at the epicenter of the Americas, a major part of the Fauna and Flora of both North and South America can be found in Costa Rica. Add the multiple climates of Costa Rica, this makes for one of the world’s country with the most varied Fauna and Flora. Everywhere, lush vegetation covers the ground while the scent of exotic flowers hangs heavy in the air. Going to Costa Rica is literally offering yourself an all inclusive vacation in stunning natural beauties either with the fiery Caribbean sea and its corral reefs or with the vast and calm Pacific Ocean alongside Costa Rica’s exceptional sceneries of mountains, rivers, valleys, plains, dry and humid tropical forests and volcanoes. All these Costa Rican’s features will help elaborate a vacation package that will meet your wildest expectations!
Wherever you decide to stay in Costa Rica, the Caribbean Sea or the Pacific Ocean are only one hour away by car on average, rarely more than three and their waters are always warm and enchanting. Whether you decide on an all-inclusive vacation package or not, it is always easy to plan a morning hiking the mountain trail, be it just hiking or climbing a volcano, rafting down a river or simply looking for exotic birds, followed by an seaside afternoon, where you can either go sunbathing, snorkeling, windsurfing, sports fishing and more!
Costa Rican’s Cuisine is not spicy but you will find fresh Cilantro in every dish! Ticos love Chicharrones, fried pork rinds served with the local liquor, as appetizers. The national main dish is gallo pinto, a mix of rice and red or black beans sometimes served with eggs, meat or vegetables and invariably accompanied with tortillas. Picadillo is a dish consisting of vegetables and ground meat. And, during your Costa Rican’s vacation, do not forget to especially taste ceviche, a dish of white fish or seafood marinated in limejuice, onions and fresh cilantro.
