Costa Rica | 3 great reasons to visit

Costa Rica is a wonderfully diverse country, with an interesting history, and an admirable commitment to preserving its beautiful and abundant nature. Because of Costa Rica’s compact size, it is possible to see and do many different things during even a short visit there. Here are 3 great reasons to visit Costa Rica…

1. Nature abounds

Costa Rica is something of a rich, tropical paradise, with more biodiversity in the country than in the entirety of Europe and the United States of America.

To the east of the country lies the Caribbean Sea and to the west is the Pacific Ocean. Costa Rica has some of the highest mountains in Central America, fourteen known volcanoes (six of which have been active in the last 75 years), hundreds of gorgeous beaches and several unspoiled National Parks.

Costa Rica’s National Parks cover more than 25% of the country and encompass lush, green rainforests, dry forests, cloud forests, wetlands and marine areas. As well as the National Parks, there are also many private nature reserves that aim to protect the fertile habitat and biodiversity of the country.

2. Outdoors adventures

Due to the sheer amount of incredible landscapes and areas of unbelievable natural beauty, it’s no surprise there are plenty of places to get outdoors and adventurous in Costa Rica. There are many places where the water is perfect for surfing, sailing, white-water rafting and various other water sports. There are also places where you can go scuba diving and snorkelling to admire the underwater gems that exist there.

On land, there are plenty of opportunities to go walking, hiking, cycling, zip lining and much more. Whatever type of activity appeals to you, you’ll be able to enjoy getting in touch with nature as you do it.

3. Explore San Jose

San Jose is the capital and most populous city in Costa Rica, home to around a third of the four million people who live in the country. It is also one of the most popular destinations that Chapman Freeborn charter private jets to and from in North America.

Be sure to explore historic and attractive Barrio Amon and its striking colonial mansions, visit one of the many superb museums or art galleries, and, of course, drink coffee grown within Costa Rica itself.
