Costa Rica “Pura Vida”
Since the late 1980s Costa Rica has been a popular nature travel destination and its main competitive advantage is its well-established system of national parks and protected areas. Covering around 23.4% of the country’s land area it is the largest in the world as a percentage of the country’s territory, and home to a rich variety of flora and fauna. The country also has plenty of world renowned beaches, both in the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, within short travel distances between both coasts either by air or land, and also several active volcanoes that can be visited with safety.
If Ecuador could only lay claim to being the mainland gateway to the Galápagos Islands, that would be reason enough to visit, but this small country also has volcanoes to climb, rainforests to explore, Inca relics to view, a profusion of bird and wildlife to spot, and Andean peaks to scale, not to mention sun-dappled beaches, magnificent sunsets, bustling indigenous markets, and colonial architecture, all a bargain with reasonably priced accommodations.
Peru is known for Machu Picchu, but the varied flavors of the country will have you wanting seconds and more. From the majesty of the Andes to the grandeur of the Amazon rainforest, venture into a world where ancient ruins whisper secrets of the past and every day is a taste of splendor.
