Costa Rica Map & Wildlife
COSTA RICA IS SITUATED ON THE CENTRAL AMERICAN ISTHMUS, FLANKED BY THE PACIFIC OCEAN AND CARIBBEAN SEA AT A DISTANCE OF APPROXIMATELY 248 KM (155 MILES) BETWEEN COASTS).
With a total area of 51,200 square kilometers (20,480 square miles), Costa Rica is no larger than the state of West Virginia, yet it contains over 5% of the world’s biodiversity.

Costa Rica is well known for the premium that it places on peace, education and democracy, and is often referred to as “the Switzerland of Central America”. In 1949, the government abolished the army, allocating all would-be military expenses to education and health care. As a direct result, the literacy rate rose to 96% and has continued to be one of the highest rates in the world.  Costa Rica is one of only three countries in the world that are protected by the United Nations.

International ports on both coasts; air, ocean and freight transportation services; a well-developed infrastructure and a strategic location at the crossroads of two continents make Costa Rica a contender in world markets. The government’s receptiveness toward new business ventures and excellent incentive plans have lured a growing number of multinational corporations to the country. (Intel, Microsoft, Emerson, NASA, Abbott) The Costa Rican government is foreign business friendly and offers incentives that attract corporations from all over the world. The concept of real estate ownership is the same in Costa Rica as it is in the US, guaranteeing land rights for local and foreign investors.

Spectacular natural beauty and peaceful atmosphere now attract over two and a half million visitors to Costa Rica annually. Sixteen volcanoes, diverse forest environments, hot springs, wetlands, lakes, island reserves and 966 kilometers (600 miles) of beaches on two coasts account for the dramatic increase in tourism over the last decade. Costa Rica’s varied terrain provides endless possibilities for activities ranging from hiking and white water rafting through national parks to surfing, snorkeling and scuba diving off the Pacific and Caribbean shores.

The odds of seeing wildlife are greater in Costa Rica than anywhere else in the world. The country is home to 1,240 species of butterflies, 845 species of birds, 250 mammal classifications, 160 amphibian categories, 218 types of reptiles and 1,013 varieties of fresh and salt water fish, including several endemic species found nowhere else on the planet. Costa Rica is also the world leader in terms of protected areas, with 27% of its land mass designated as national parks or reserves.

Because of its biological diversity, excellent climate, low crime, stable government, unusually friendly peoples, safety and accessibility, Costa Rica is rapidly becoming a major tourist destination and retirement location for people from North America and Europe. Tourist traffic is increasing in double digit percentages per year and has doubled since 2010 to more than 3 million visitors annually.
