Of all the Latin American destinations, Costa Rica might be one of the most endearing. It's such a tiny country, tucked between Nicaragua and Panama, not much larger than the American state of West Virginia. Despite its size though, it's one of the most exciting places to visit in Latin America. The common expression in Costa Rica is "Pura Vida", meaning "pure life" and the locals follow it to the letter. The people of Costa Rica, called Ticos are famously known as some of the friendliest in the world. They are welcoming of visitors and want to share their traditions, food, land, beaches and good nature. Costa Rica has a warmth to it, not just in the literal sense as it enjoys exceptional weather all year long due to its location, but a friendly, fun and welcoming nature - evoking a feeling of home and a chance for relaxation unlike any other spot in Central or South America. The array of flora and fauna, the lively cities, striking beaches, active volcanoes, water sports, canopy tours, national parks, wetlands, the sounds of music and nature - are just some of the reasons to visit Costa Rica!
