In true Costa Rican fashion, pura vida! This loosely translates as ‘pure life’ and it is perfect in describing both the culture and environment of Costa Rica.
Costa Rica is a rugged, rain forested country in Central America with coastlines on the Caribbean and Pacific. The country is famous for its beaches, volcanoes, and biodiversity. Roughly a quarter of its area is made up of protected jungle, teeming with wildlife including spider monkeys and quetzal birds.
Costa Rica is committed to preserving the beaty and diversity of the country through the development of national parks. Considered the birthplace of ecotourism, Costa Rica’s costa is home to dozens of important nesting beaches for four turtle species – leatherback, green, hawksbill and olive ridley.

Our patrolled beaches of the Osa Peninsular are some of the most important sea turtle nesting beaches in the South Pacific of Costa Rica, with approximately 7,000 nests being laid there each year by Olive Ridley and Pacific Green turtles.
If Costa Rica could be famous for one animal, it would be the sloth! In Puerto Jimenez, they are richly populated, so make sure you look up into the trees when you are walking around – they are often hidden... or sleeping!
Whale watching off the coast off the Osa peninsular! The humpback whale migrates past the Osa on its way from the South to North Pacific. Along with mega pods of Spinner and Bottlenose Dolphins make this experience once in a lifetime!
