Many travelers find that a trip to Central America is a great experience, with pristine waters and activities for the entire family. With countless breathtaking sites, tourists will likely take home memories that last a lifetime.

Despite being just 185 miles wide, the country of Costa Rica is home to more than 12,000 different plants, 877 bird species, and 12 ecological zones. According to Costa Rican Specialties, more than a quarter (28 percent) of the entire country is protected land and activities include surfing, spelunking and swimming.

Travelers will erupt with excitement when they see the 9 active volcanoes located throughout the country. The most active of all these is Arenal, which will interest those who are curious about how the natural world’s underground activity affects the land above.

One of the main draws to Costa Rica is its beaches, which span hundreds of miles under the hot sun.

“Even the most active person or nature lover will want to smooth on an extra layer of SPF 15 sunscreen and spend some time on the beautiful beaches along Costa Rica’s more than 621 miles (1,000 km.) of shoreline,” Costa Rican Specialties reports. “Each has a beauty and character all its own, in every hue and texture. Many beaches are wild and undeveloped. At others, you’ll find cabins to rent or small hotels.”

Ornithology enthusiasts will be pleased with the bird watching opportunities present in the country. As previously mentioned, there are some 877 different species of birds, thanks to the diverse ecosystems in the relatively small area.

And while taking a trip to Costa Rica will likely satisfy even the hard-to-please traveler, going overseas without proper planning could result in hardships. Purchasing the best travel insurance will mean that tourists can fully bask in the wonders of nature without worrying about costs from unexpected mishaps.
