In Costa Rica you will start breathing again and to restart your body and mind.
LET’S START TALKING ABOUT THE FORESTS OF COSTA RICA.
If what you are looking for is to lose yourself in the natural exuberance of our country, at least 5% of the world’s biodiversity is found in Costa Rica, divided between its tropical humid forests, rain forests, cloud forests and national parks.
With regard to the rain forests, these are located in the southwest of the country, they are the most visited because they house most of the natural biodiversity of the territory and are a perfect setting to disconnect from everyday life, routine and the stress of daily hustle and bustle.
For their part, the cloud forests are an ideal destination for lovers of silence, drizzle and mist, here, the senses are sharpened, you will feel that you are walking on a soft carpet (it is actually moss, lichens and algae) and you will be able to appreciate a wide variety of plants such as orchids, bromeliads, ferns and other species.
And the humid forests, or jungles, are the most remote in the country, but they are still a key destination on the list when traveling to Costa Rica.
In Costa Rica you will find two great tropical forests: the uninterrupted tropical forests of the Osa Peninsula and Corcovado National Park, in the South Pacific and the lowland tropical forests of Tortuguero National Park.
The latter is internationally recognized for protecting the most important green turtle nesting beach in the Western Hemisphere.
LET’S TALK ABOUT THE BEACHES IN COSTA RICA.
Costa Rica is a country located in the middle of two coastlines, that is, you will have a beach in the Pacific and a beach in the Caribbean, with completely different climate and vegetation.
