Why Costa Rica? 

Why Costa Rica?

July 30, 2012

Thinking of planning your next vacation? Look no further than Costa Rica.

Costa Rica will fascinate anyone interested in exploring Latin America’s cultural diversity and witnessing some of the best wildlife anywhere in the world. Costa Rica is a small country, with about 0.25% of the worlds landmass, but boasts almost 5% of the worlds biodiversity. Around 25% of the country is protected national parks and protected areas which is the largest percentage of protected landmass of any country in the world.

Costa Rica was ranked first in 2009 and 2012 on the Happy Planet Index and was also ranked as the ‘greenest’ country in the world in 2009.

What does this mean for you? It means a vacation like no other. With rainforests, live volcanoes, wild free flowing rivers and fantastic beaches Costa Rica is an adventure destination second to none.

With our Week of Adventures tour we give you a snapshot of everything that makes Costa Rica such a special destination. We kayak down a remote river, mountain bike ride down the highest volcano in the country, raft one of the top 5 commercially rafted rivers in the world (as voted by National Geographic), take part in a canopy/zipline tour and if that is not enough we also head to the beach for some surfing and snorkeling.

Costa Rica Rios is an award winning company (voted one of the top adventure outfitters on earth by National geographic Adventure) with highly skilled guides who love to show off their country to our international guests.

As proud members of 1% For The Planet you can be assured that by choosing an adventure week with us you are helping the world we all live in as 1% of our annual turnover is donated to non-profit environmental causes.

Costa Rica Rios is an environmentally conscious company that always does its best to recycle, reuse and reduce. We buy locally grown produce and we donate our organic waste to a local chocolate farmer!

So if you are still trying to decide on the perfect Costa Rica vacation package look no further.

We look forward to some amazing adventures with you in the tropics!
