Costa Rica, North America

Costa Rica, North America


Pura vida, or “pure life”. It’s a local phrase with connotations as wide-ranging as Costa Rica’s wildlife – and it’s waiting for you in this Central American paradise.

This lush, green country will wow you at every turn – and be prepared for a turn or two. You’ll certainly need to be on your toes in the Pacific beach town of Tamarindo, where crisp white-lipped breakers bring dreadlocked flocks of surfers.
