Costa Rica occupies a unique location, between the Southern and Northern American continents. Thanks to this, animal species from both continents mingle and mix in a way seen nowhere else in the world. Costa Rica has the highest density of biodiversity of any country – over 4% of the world’s species can only be found here. The rainforests are among some of the most productive ecosystems of the world. Each is a unique habitat, with creatures and microclimates all their own. Flora is truly what gives a tropical destination its aura of fun! If you think that the wildlife run rampant in this country, just wait till you see the plants - there are over 10,000 species of plants! You’ll find many that can be seen nowhere else in the world.
