Just about any time is a great time to visit Costa Rica and eco-tourism is one of their most vital means of revenue. The land is deemed an ideal foreword to the rainforest for its biodiversity, its fantastic and nearby parks system, and its comparative safety for tourists. Costa Rica is a leader for numerous developing countries as it shows that monetary health is companionable with forest conservation. The country also bonded with an alliance of tropical developing countries in 2005 that offered a “rainforest preservation for emissions” pact at the December United Nations summit on climate transformation in Montreal. The concept was acknowledged by the UN and sent word for wealthier nations to recompense less fortunate nations for rainforest preservation.
Costa Rica was once 99% forest but that’s been reduced to about 35%. With plenty of land comprising of biological reserves, national parks and wildlife refuges, it’s no surprise that the country’s utmost national treasure is its overabundance of natural diversity. Costa Rica is home to some of the most vibrant and unusual flora and fauna on the planet. All together this tiny Central American country has some 10,000 species of trees and plants.
Hotel accommodations and activities are accessible the whole year, but most visitors come during the dry season which are in the colder months in northern latitudes, December through March. There’s always dry weather on the Pacific side of Costa Rica, even though there can be infrequent bouts of rain. The Caribbean’s temperature is more changeable, and typically has a mix of sun and rain all year round. There can be unpredictable weather patterns but the country is often distinguished by morning sunshine and afternoon showers.
While there is more rain noon-time during the rainy or green season, the locations that are frequently extremely dry, such as Guanacaste, are stunning and green, with forest satiated and luxuriant and in striking contrast to the royal blue Pacific ocean. Prices at hotels are more expensive during the high-tourism season which is the dry season. During Christmas, New Years and Semana Santa-Easter prices are even higher.
Additionally, during the holiday time, there are many international travelers as well as Costa Rican sightseers. Usually, the natives travel to the mountains, and beaches so that restaurants, hotels and roads are more crowded. For example, one day a visitor may be canoeing down the wet forest of the Tortuguero National Park, and on another day hiking the lovely Manuel Antonio National Park with its luscious beaches. Or a visit to the Corcovado National Park to peek at the last residual of tropical primary lowland rainforest or the Monteverde Cloud Forest for a totally unique hiking experience.
Costa Rica is the ultimate adventure for nature lovers. The jungles are some of the most immaculate and isolated on earth, while being host to much of the earth’s animal population. The country’s forest has produced a wonderfully unique habitat that’s become a micro-climate all of its own. There are wonders to experience in the small country of Costa Rica, a vacation one will never forget.
