Have you ever dreamt of waking to the sounds of the Scarlet Macaw? Or casually seeing a three-toed sloth, soundly asleep above as you take your morning jog?  These dreams become a reality when you choose Costa Rica for your family s next tropical vacation.  Nestled between North and South America, Costa Rica is situated in the neotropical climate of Central America.  Due to its positioning, Costa Rica is able to be home to thousands of different species of wildlife.

With over 500,000 species, Costa Rica is one of the top 20 countries with the highest biodiversity in the world, making it a biological haven for animal enthusiasts alike. Costa Rica represents 4% of the entire world s species, which is remarkable considering its the size of the United States, West Virginia, or Europe s, Denmark. Uniquely, many of the animals in Costa Rica are endemic species, meaning, they do not exist anywhere else in the world. From frogs to hummingbirds to lizards to sloths, Costa Rica's spread of wildlife is astounding.

The country s biodiversity can be attributed to the immense diversity of ecosystems, for there are rain forests, deciduous forests, cloud forests, two coastlines, mountains, volcanoes, rivers, and mangroves. As a result of the varying landscape, thousands of species of mammals, reptiles, amphibians and birds are able to thrive.

Planning your next safari vacation is easy with our expertise, for we ensure the satisfaction of all our visitors. We find ecolodge accommodations, deep in the tropical rainforest, or we have beach-side resorts where visitors can watch as thousands of sea turtles participate in their annual nesting habits. Regardless of what type of species you are interested in seeing, when you choose Costa Rica for your next vacation, it is safe to say you will be immersed in one of Mother Nature s greatest gifts: the wild.
