Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, Costa Rica heralds 762 miles of coastline and an endless supply of amusements both on land and in the water. Active travelers can soar from treetop to treetop on a canopy tour, surf the wicked reef breaks of Witch's Rock in Guanacaste, study the mysterious stone spheres and pre-Columbian art of the country's South Pacific region, or explore the famed dive sites and rich waters of the Nicoya Peninsula. White-water rafting, river kayaking, sport fishing, hiking, mountain biking and caving are also popular.
As part of the Pacific Ring of Fire, Costa Rica also offers volcanoes for the geologically intrigued. The most famous one is the Arenal Volcano, one of the 10 most active volcanoes in the world. It erupts several times a day, coughing up smoke and shooting off liquid lava. Head to thermal hot springs in the area for views of the volcano or follow nearby trails to lookout points.
Complementing the country's varied terrain is an ecological system equally as diverse. Though Costa Rica covers only 0.03% of the Earth's surface, it houses approximately six percent of the world's biodiversity -- much of which can be found in the country's 20 national parks and eight biological reserves. Spot a number of rare animals such as squirrel monkeys, leatherback sea turtles, jaguars, Baird's tapirs and humpback whales. The country also boasts more than 812 species of birds.
For cosmopolitan amenities, the bright lights of urban San Jose offer vibrant markets, multiple shopping malls, colonial-style architecture, sophisticated nightlife and numerous attractions such as the Jade Museum and Gold Museum.
