Costa Rica is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, relatively inexpensive, home to a welcoming and friendly people (many who speak English), and offers a wide variety of sightseeing/tour possibilities. This small country is home to a large North American population and receives approximately one million visitors a year intent on exploring its many beaches, rainforests and eco-attractions.
The fact that Costa Rica welcomes more than a million tourists each year is not a coincidence. Located in Central America, Costa Rica is a magical land of towering volcanoes, misty cloud forests, unspoiled beaches and lush jungles crisscrossed by some of the world’s most thrilling white water rivers.
While it only covers 0,03% of the world’s surface, it houses close to 6% of the world’s biodiversity. The land is divided into 20 natural parks, eight biological reserves and several protected areas that are a gift for ecotourists. For example, Tortuguero National Park is famous for the turtles that lay their eggs and for the water channels that house endangered species like the manatee, the nutria and the crocodile.
The variety of attractions is nearly limitless and you can choose to participate in one-day or multi-day excursions that include visits to an active volcano and soothing hot springs, a jungle canal adventure, horseback tours and much more. Depending on your medical procedure you may wish to participate in more active endeavours before your surgery.
