Costa Rica ... Costa Rica (Spanish: Costa Rica or República de Costa Rica), is a country in Central America, bordered by Nicaragua to the north, Panama to the south-southeast, the Pacific Ocean to the west and south, and the Caribbean Sea to the east. Costa Rica was the first country in the world to constitutionally abolish its army. It is also the only country in which both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans can be seen from the same point."
Newest Review: ... took about five hours. It is not far but the roads, like they are in most of Costa Rica, are very bad, and the buses cant go very fast over them. Monteverde is set in cloud forest and it was a lovely place. The town is called Santa Elena. This is a small town but there are places to stay and places to eat. There is a lot to do in Monteverde, especially adventure sports, like canopy zip ... more

Wow, Costa Rica, what can I say! This was a must see destination on my list for several years before I eventually visited it last year! I am so glad I finally did! Costa Rica is in Central America, with Nicaragua to the North and Panama to the South. It is a small country that speaks Spanish. Costa Rica has two coastlines- one on the Atlantic side and one on the Pacific side. The Atlantic coast is technically called the Carribean coast, due to the location of Costa Rica just a few degrees of latitude above the equator. I was quite worried before I went to Costa Rica, because I had heard bad things about safety. I was ... Read the complete review

White sand, palm-fringed beaches, warm turquoise sea...... Costa Rica has this and more. (For those of you whose geography is as bad as mine - Costa Rica is on the skinny piece of land that connects North and South America and is only about the size of Switzerland). Politically, this is a country that is relatively stable (which is more than can be said for its neighbours, Panama and Nicaragua). It boasts a democracy, which has existed since the late 1940's. Perhaps most significantly, they have no army - a fact which they are intensely proud of. The money that would have been used on weapons goes towards improving their education and world-class ...

Until a year ago, I wouldn't even have considered Costa Rica as a holiday destination. Basically, like probably the vast majority of people, I knew very little about it. I knew it was in Central America, and could have had a stab at pointing it out on a map, but that was it. However, just about a year ago, a friend of mine moved out there. Fairly soon, the invitation came to go and spend a couple of weeks with her. We decided to take the plunge and go, and I can honestly say it was one of the best holidays I've ever had. We went in September, which isn't actually the best time to go. It's in the rainy season, which usually means torrential ... Read the complete review

Having returned from an abosultely inspirational trip to Central America's Costa Rica and Nicaragua, I can share with you the unspoilt beauty and charm that only the lush, diverse weather and eco-system that Costa Rica can provide. Due to the unique global positioning of Costa Rica - small strip of land wedged in between the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea - travelers and tourists alike are exposed to a country that boasts a natural vegetation and animal kingdom like no other. An outstanding way to spend time in Costa Rica (depending on time) is to travel up from San Jose (capital) to Tamarindo (North West Coast). Here travelers will be privy to a number of ...

Costa Rica means rich coast. Rich country would have been more apt. Althought costa rica isn't a finacially rich country it more than makes up for it in both the land and the people that live there. The country itself provides a rich variety sure to thrill any environmentalist. Rain forests, cloud forests, waterfalls, and volcanoes. Wildlife enthusiasts can see capacino monkeys, kormarants, and an unrivaled array of bird life. The beaches are out of this world with white gold sand and crystal clear water. ...
