Costa Rica’s rich and unique biodiversity often make it a top destination for nature enthusiasts. But those who can’t book a plane ticket to the island right now should spend the next three-and-a-half minutes watching this video tour from travel blog Face du Monde.
The short video captures a three-week road trip through Costa Rica. It features stops in San José, Tortuguero, Puerto Viejo de Limon, La Fortuna, Rincon de La Vieja, Corcovado, Manuel Antonio and Uvita.
The trip through nature features many fantastic encounters with crocodiles, rare birds, tortoises, monkeys, and unidentifiable amphibians.
In terms of nature, Costa Rica offers visitors opportunities to trek through miles of rainforest, peek over the edge of an active volcano and then relax afterwards with a soak in a natural hot spring.
But no trip to Costa Rica is complete without experiencing the culture of the locals, who call themselves Ticos. Sit down for a cup of coffee, brewed from a typical Chorreador, or grab a bite to eat where the locals go.
