Bordered by the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean the country boasts idyllic white-sand beaches with world-class surf waves and colourful marine life. Being one of the most biologically diverse places on earth and nestled between Nicaragua and Panama, the landscape in beautiful Costa Rica varies from smouldering volcanoes, lofty mountains to lush cloud forests and marshy low lands with and a rich variety of flora and fauna as well.
