beyond the beaten path
Here is one of our all-time favorite destinations, one we never tire of returning to - and it might seem strange given the relative small size of the country, but you only have to look at its simply astonishing biodiversity to see why. While it's true that it's impossible to fully describe the beauty of Costa Rica, it's also true that two words are enough to encapsulate its spirit: Pura Vida ("pure Life"). Deserted white beaches, majestic active volcanoes, tropical forests as far as the eye can see teeming with flora and fauna unique in the world, and a climate of general relaxation and enjoyment... this truly seems to be the recipe for Pure Life. With over a quarter of the land covered by protected parks and the largest density of plant and animal species in the world, nature lovers like us are spoilt for choice anywhere in the country. One of the pioneering eco-tourism destinations, Costa Rica offers an abundance of green experiences and eco lodges that are unparalleled in Central America. Our favorites of course are unique, regenerative experiences away from the beaten paths. Curious to know more?
