Costa Rica is a small country at just 19,653 square miles (51,100 square kilometers), but its varying elevations give birth to rolling valleys, tropical beaches, and sky-high mountain peaks.
This diversity of terrain and landscapes creates a variety of habitats, which we classify into 10 regions. Some, like Monteverde and Arenal, are small regions with big personality, while others stretch for miles and encompass several popular destinations, national parks, and biological corridors.
Perhaps the most underdeveloped and underestimated region of Costa Rica is its northeastern Caribbean Coast. Tropical flora, wildlife, and cultural experiences await!
