Costa Rica offers the perfect vacation, and Adventure Tours, Inc. makes it all happen. All you have to do is show up and have a great time.
There are very few places in the world that can offer the incredible diversity of scenery, climate and vacation pleasures that Costa Rica provides.
Packed within its borders are more than a dozen volcanoes, dry savannas, tropical dry and lush rain forests, cool cloud forests, several mountain ranges, countless streams and rivers and over 755 miles of coastline stretched along two oceans.
Nearly a quarter of the land of Costa Rica is protected in a world-renowned system of national parks, biological reserves, wildlife refuges, and other protected areas.
The nation's twelve distinct ecological zones are home to an astonishing array of flora and fauna: Approximately four percent of all known species known on earth including over 850 species of birds, 600 species of butterflies, 1,200 species of orchids and 237 species of mammals including three-toed sloths, giant anteaters, coatimundis, peccaries and four species of monkeys.
Variety is what makes Costa Rica such an exciting place to visit. Want to stroll down a palm-lined beach in the heat of the morning sun? Paddle down a whitewater river lined with such gorgeous scenery that you can hardly keep your eyes on the rapids? Focus your binoculars on such spectacular birds as the toucan and scarlet macaw? Stand in awe at the foot of a volcano as it blasts incandescent boulders hundreds of feet into the sky? Costa Rica is the place where you can do all of the above and more! No matter which of the country's abundant attractions hold the interest of the visitor, its natural beauty and friendly citizens are sure to make any stay in Costa Rica an unforgettable one.
