Spanish for "Rich Coast," Costa Rica more than earns its moniker, totally redefining your idea of biodiversity. Though the country occupies only 0.1% of the world's landmass, it is home to more than 6% of all plant and animal species. And the nation is serious about protecting these natural riches: More than 25% of Costa Rica is set aside as national park or protected land, housing an outdoor playground of misty cloud forests, living coral reefs, verdant river gorges, lush rainforests, and fiery volcanoes.
So whether your explorations come courtesy of remote jungle ecolodges, thatched beachside cabins, or hilltop retreats, Costa Rica's hospitality and eco-friendly policies let you travel green. We always partner with Nature Air, the world's first carbon-neutral airline, to cut travel time and your ecological footprint.
