Costa Rica can be considered a paradise by many even though it has only recently begun to see more and more visitors flocking to its white water rivers which take you through a host of diverse landscapes.
The abundance of wildlife, Costa Rica rain forest canopy, and the relatively small population of 3 million makes exploring the roughly 19,000 square miles of this country a welcome adventure for travelers on their Costa Rica vacation.
Costa Rica is a lesser-known country in Central America, with Nicaragua to the north, and the lagoon paradise of Panama, with its infamous Panama Canal to the south. Two shores of this country touch the two separate major bodies of water: the Caribbean Ocean to the east, and the Pacific Ocean to the west.
