Costa Rica

Costa Rica has been named one of the happiest countries in the world. Most likely, this has to do with the Costa Rican way of looking at life. They call it “pura vida” and it means being grateful for each day’s blessings. No worries, no stress, no furrowed brows. Just a daily commitment to enjoy what life has to offer.

The country’s near-perfect climate encompasses diverse natural landscapes that vary from cloud-topped mountains to lush tropical rainforests and stunning beaches. There is a surprising mix of activity here for a country with a laid-back way of life. Swimming, whale-watching, sportfishing, diving, sailing, surfing, kite-surfing, and golfing are a big draw as are

adventure-rich activities like jungle safaris, zip lining, river rafting, and kayaking.

Costa Rican food is fresh and healthy, just as you’d expect from a country dedicated to conservation and ecotourism. Local cuisine blends Spanish, Caribbean, and African flavors with corn as a staple for making tortillas, empanadas, tamales, bread, and even drinks.

The country’s world-renowned coffee is Costa Rica’s main cash crop and also its pride and joy—so much so that it is illegal to plant anything but the highest quality Arabica beans. This commitment to excellence, along with the area’s ideal climate, high altitude, and soil rich with volcanic ash, combine to make Costa Rican coffee beans among the best in the world.

Come for the natural beauty. And let the best coffee in the world fuel all of your adventures.
