Coffee, chocolate, and the Blue Morpho Butterfly

Pura Vida!

A commonly exclaimed phrase throughout the country, "Pura Vida" is the national motto of Costa Rica. Although it can mean many things, the phrase roughly translates to "pure life" or "good life". It can symbolize a relaxed outlook on life - no matter what the day brings!

Coffee and Chocolate

Every country has its export, but none so beloved as coffee and chocolate!

Costa Rica takes great pride in its coffee plantations, which fuel people internationally through chains like Starbucks. We can't forget the chocolate, though. Locally made and always delicious; you can't visit without a taste.

Biodiversity At Its Finest

Costa Rica is a hotspot for biodiversity, boasting 11,000 kinds of trees and flowering plants and 200 species of reptile.

Sheltered under the rainforest canopies, we'll find brightly colored tree frogs, toucans, sloths, monkeys, and the famous Blue Morpho butterfly.
