Costa Rica represents only the 0.03% of the Earth’s surface (that is about the size of West Virginia (USA) or Slovakia) but it holds almost 5% of the planet biodiversity.
Thanks to its geographic location (Neotropics) and particular characteristics: a long mountain range, microclimates, two coasts and the commitment for nature conservancy by the government and envinronmental organizations, Costa Rica is a top destination either for scientific or recreational purpose.
