Flora & fauna
Costa Rica is a natural paradise that will allow lovers of flora and fauna to be able to admire them directly in their habitats! The experiences are diverse and varied, both for animal species (observe humpback whales in the Central and South Pacific coast, green turtles in Tortuguero or even the emblematic quetzal in Monteverde), as well as for plant species (make the ascent of a strangler ficus or see “the most beautiful flower in the world”, the Guaria de Turrialba). Fascinating moments that remind us of the importance of protecting our environment so that future generations can benefit too.
Costa Rica is full of exceptional natural sites! Countless waterfalls, most often surrounded by lush vegetation: La Fortuna, Nauyaca, Rio Celeste, Bajos del Toro, and others, will offer you a breathtaking spectacle! As for the volcanoes, there are 116 in the territory, including 5 active ones: the Arenal, the most emblematic and a perfect conical shape, the Irazú, the highest, the Poas with the largest crater in the world, Rincón de la Vieja and its volcanic manifestations (fumaroles or boiling mud pools) and the Turrialba, which reopened its doors in December 2020 after 8 years without access! A wide range of possibilities, for the curious and the adventurous!
Animal rescue centers and sanctuaries
In 2017, Costa Rica adopted a law against animal abuse, one of the most successful in the world. Indeed, the protection of animals has very quickly transformed over the years from a social demand to an ambitious and real political measure. With regard to wild animals, several shelters such as the Jaguar Rescue Center in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca and shrines like the Alturas in Dominical were set up to save them and where possible rehabilitate them. Many of them are non-profit organizations so visiting them is helping to maintain them and allow the mission to continue!
