Costa Rica lies between Panama and Nicaragua in Central America with the Pacific Ocean on one side and the Atlantic on the other. The country is dominated by high mountain peaks of tectonic origin in the south and hit mountain ranges of volcanic origin in the Northwest, while the central region offers an ideal climate with its Meseta Central plateau; this is where the capital San José is situated.
The country is a paradise of pristine coastlines,
savannahs, rainforests, rivers and mountain ranges that
boast many national parks such as the Tortuguero
National Park, where hawksbill, green, loggerhead,
Ridley and leatherback turtles can be spotted. Costa
Rica also has an amazing array of different landscapes
and mircolimates where one can find a large number of
