Costa Rica Information


The fact that more than one million tourists visit Costa Rica each year does not happen by chance.


Our country, located in Central America, is an isthmus where life seems to have created its roots. Covering only 0.03% of the surface of our planet, Costa Rica has approximately 6% of the world's biodiversity. The country is home to over 1,000 species of butterflies, 845 species of birds, and 1,013 varieties of fresh and salt water fish.

Costa Rica extends majestically from the Pacific Ocean to the Caribbean Sea , and distance between both coasts is barely 200 miles . Its land portion occupies only 20 thousand square miles.

If you travel throughout the provinces of Costa Rica , it's easy to notice that in no other place you shall find fields with so many variations in their landscape and climate as here.

Costa Rica is one of most highly valued tourist destinations on the planet. This small piece of land includes all of the necessary components to satisfy the taste of thousands of travelers visiting each year.

Costa Rica 's territorial division includes 7 provinces, that is: San Jos , Alajuela, Cartago, Heredia, Puntarenas, Limn and Guanacaste, also known as The Gold Coast.

Together they offer an attractive tourist destination of almost limitless possibilities, which include extensive rainforests, magnificent volcanoes, rivers traveling through unspoiled mountains, pristine beaches and natural resources safeguarded by the government.


Recognized as a global leader on environmental issues, Costa Rica has designated 27% of its land mass as protected areas for national parks and natural reserves.

In addition, Costa Rica is characterized by an impressive scenic beauty, social and political stability, high educational levels, and efficient infrastructure and services. The country boasts a 95% literacy rate and continues to be one of the highest in the world.

Costa Rica's strategic position (heart of the western hemisphere), the government's positive attitude towards foreign investment, its access to international markets, and labor quality and cost, make this unique country an ideal place to invest and establish commercial operations.
