Itinerary Overview

Costa Rica is a magical country for nature lovers!

It is a country where animals, plants and people live together! However, man adapts to nature and not the other way around!

There is a real contrast between the Caribbean coast and the Pacific coast! It is absolutely necessary to do both sides to discover two totally different atmospheres!

We could, with a friend, discover both sides and the difference between each city, sometimes even of temperature is incredible! That's why it's a country full of discovery and surprises!

The food is mainly based on rice, bananas, chicken and red beans! The typical dish is the Casado and you can find it everywhere for cheap!

The roads are sometimes impassable but they are part of the authenticity of the country! The nature is green, incredibly provided and the animals do not miss: monkeys, sloths, whales, dolphins, many species of birds, butterflies, frogs etc...

It is a country that has decided to preserve this flora and fauna by protecting and preserving the natural biosphere.

There are still some limits such as the use of pesticides for the mass production of certain products dedicated to export such as bananas or palm oil!
