Costa Rica

Known worldwide for its eco-tourism efforts, stunning natural beauty from the rainforest to the beaches, and an extensive amount of wildlife species that live in the varying habitats, Costa Rica is a top-notch destination. Many visitors favor Costa Rica for its seemingly laid-back culture and to enjoy the lifestyle known as "pura vida" that most locals adopt, which means pure life. This motto not only represents a way of life, but is also a popular greeting, farewell phrase and is used in many situations in daily life in Costa Rica. The pura vida philosophy not only refers to the locals, visitors and growing ex-pat community, but also extends to the abundance of pure nature to be seen and enjoyed throughout Costa Rica.


Guanacaste, a province in northwestern Costa Rica, is a tropical paradise bursting with outdoor activities. It has more than 400 miles of coastline on the Pacific Ocean, creating many opportunities for water sports like surfing, snorkeling, fishing or simply relaxing on a beach. Guanacaste has many black volcanic sand beaches, which contrast beautifully with the bright blue water.

Guanacaste is also home to some sprawling national parks. Rincon de la Vieja National Park, a 34,800-acre park in the middle of the province, has intriguing features such as boiling mud pots, active volcanoes, nine craters, cloud forests and many hiking trails. Santa Rosa National Park, in the northwestern corner of Guanacaste, encompasses ten unique habitats, ranging from dry tropical forest to moist mangrove swamp.

“Pura Vida” means “Pure Life”!
