Costa Rica

Costa Rica - the Switzerland of Central America. In any case, this country is considered very peaceful, it has had no army since 1948, and wealthy by Central American standards. Due to the geographical location between North and South America, the great differences in altitude and thus different climatic zones, it offers many different habitats for a great variety of animal species. In addition, it is the location between the two oceans, the Pacific and the Atlantic (Caribbean Sea), separated only by this relatively narrow land. The lowland is hot and humid, in high contrast to the hilly, volcanic interior, which has a more moderate climate. There are even cloud forests that are inhabited by tarantulas and the mystical quetzal. Equally impressive are the gems of the sky, hummingbirds, which visit the flowers of the plants in large numbers.
