Knowing Costa Rica Costa Rica extends majestically from the Pacific Ocean to the Caribbean Sea, and its distance 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 in this 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, which are: San José, Alajuela, Cartago, Heredia, Guanacaste, Puntarenas, and Limón. Together they offer an attractive tourist destination, of almost limitless possibilities, that include extensive rainforests, volcanoes, rivers traveling through the mountains, beaches and natural resources safeguarded by an important organization of national parks and forest reserves. Heritage and Culture Costa Rican culture is in many ways a reflection of its racial diversity. The predominant influence has long been European, which is reflected in everything from the official language -- Spanish -- to the architecture of the country’s churches and other historic buildings. The indigenous influence is less visible, but can be found in everything from the tortillas that make part of a typical Costa Rican meal, to the handmade ceramics sold at roadside stands. An important aspect of Costa Rica’s cultural legacy is their love for peace and democracy. The Ticos like to stand out that their nation is the exception in Latin America, where military dictatorships have long dominated politics. They take pride in having more than one hundred years of democratic tradition, and almost half a century without an army. The army was abolished in 1948, and the money the country saves by not expending in military issues is invested in improving the Costa Ricans’ standard of living, which has fostered a culture of social peace that makes it such a pleasant place to visit. The Ticos The Ticos, as Costa Ricans are commonly known, are famous for their hospitality, and are quite happy to live up to their reputation. They are well-educated and hard working people, who are quick with a handshake and a smile. They are well aware of the special land they have, and most likely they will help foreigners when they get lost, even explaining things that might seem bizarre to foreigners, and making their stay as enjoyable as possible. People say the Ticos are their nation’s greatest asset, and once you’ve experienced their friendliness and spontaneity, you’ll have no doubt to that regard.

Central Valley The Central Valley is a great choice to enjoy a variety of attractions, natural and cultural, including the best museums in Costa Rica. The Central Valley has two extraordinarily beautiful areas that in themselves are true tourist destinations: Turrialba and Valle de los Santos. Rural villages in the area are incredibly picturesque and offer a glimpse of the Costa Rica of yesteryear, with their bahareque houses. In the Central Valley you can enjoy the Poas Volcano, Irazu Volcano and Braulio Carrillo National Parks, as well as Melico Salazar Theater and the historic and beautiful National Theater.

Northern Plains The Northern Plains resonate with a sense of adventure, much like the Arenal Volcano, the icon of the region. This zone is filled with protected areas – lakes, lagoons, volcanos, hot springs, rivers and waterfalls. Visitors can go white water rafting, mountain biking, hiking or wildlife and bird watching almost everywhere throughout the area. Due to the rainy climate, wet evergreen forests and fertile plains, this is a haven for an abundance of waterfowl, reptiles, mammals and the prehistoric Gaspar fish, and is an important site of interest to wildlife watchers. The region flows with the adrenaline of the rivers that run through it: the Peùas Blancas, San Carlos, Toro, Puerto Viejo and Sarapiqui, some of which were of great importance for navigation. The biodiversity in the canton of Sarapiqui is an internationally recognized scientific research site and is the last stronghold of endangered species such as the macaw. The area is also famous for its characteristic village festivals, which always include championship bull riding and livestock auctions.
