A totally safe and secure country that has abolished its military in 1948 and well known for its environmental consciousness. Costa Rican society is rooted in family, education, health. Ticos and Ticas (male and female Costa Ricans, respectively) have a sustained commitment to healthy personal relationships and stewardship of the natural environment. This emphasis on creating symbiotic relationships with the environment and tourism, particularly in the last 40 years has set a profound example, and it has allowed a fascinating model of development to take root.
Costa Rica is often referred to as the Switzerland of Central America that offers free education through the 11th grade as well as health care for all citizens. Costa Rica enjoys a high standard of living with the highest regional literacy rate and an average life expectancy of 78 years.

PURA VIDA… IN THE SKY
Costa Rica’s terrain varies between coastal plains and rugged mountains: three mountain ranges run through the country and there are over 100 volcanic cones, several of which are major volcanoes. The highest point is Cerro Chirripo, which rises to 3,810 meters (12,500 ft) in the Chirripo National Park.
But ground transportation can take many hours on its rough, windy, and mountainous roads.
Depending on your travel route, domestic flights may be the most convenient and sensible option. Traveling between some destinations can take up to 8 hours by ground, while a domestic flight can cut that travel time to 35 minutes a major time saver, especially if you have only a short time in Costa Rica.

You can see the southern sky like never before through a powerful GPS-guided telescope while savoring a specially prepared menu of cocktails and culinary treats infused with real meteorite dust. You and your family can then capture the moment using a high-tech device that connects a camera to the telescope and go home with a celestial souvenir from a night never to be forgotten.
There are many naturally occurring hot springs around the world, many affiliated with volcanic activity. In Costa Rica, there are hot springs of different temperatures, flow volumes and mineral content that can be found in the regions around the Arenal, Irazu, Miravalles and Rincon de la Vieja Volcanos, and others in the Orosi Valley or near Ciudad Quesada in San Carlos.
Hot springs are considered a natural expression of Earth’s inherent energy. Geologically, thermal natural springs are 97% rain-based and 3% magma-based. Rainwater enters the earth through fissures on the surface and is then heated by magma found in the earth’s core. Once heated, the waters rise to surface, taking with them minerals found in the earth’s rocky stratus.
Branches of the thermal rivers flow through the gardens or down from the rainforest. Springs captured for cold water consumption for guest use in the resort…: a real Paradise! In the Arenal Volcano region there is the first Hot Springs resort opened to the public, still the top rated, most acclaimed and publicized luxury Hot Springs and Spa resort in Costa Rica.
Costa Rica has nearly 300 different beaches along its stunning Pacific and Caribbean coastlines, each with a unique draw and distinct setting. Even on nearby beaches the sand can vary from white, black, or brown coloration. Some beaches are full of shells or scattered with rocks; others are soft with fluffy fine sand. Some are fantastic for swimming, and others are better for surfing.
