Costa Rica is made up of seven distinct provinces: San Jose, Alajuela, Heredia, Cartago, Guanacaste, Limon and Puntarenas.

Nearly a quarter of Costa Rica is protected jungle. This biodiverse landscape, with more than 500,000 varieties of species, offers refuge to around ten percent of the world’s wildlife.

Costa Rica has fittingly served as a hub for ecotourism since the 1990s. Its tallest volcano is Irazu, which reaches a glorious 11,259 feet; Chirripo Mountain is even higher at 12,500 feet.
