Costa Rica is one of the most valued environmental destinations.
Approximately 25% of the country has protected forests and reserves and there are more than 100 different protected areas to visit.
There are more than 121 volcanic formations in Costa Rica, and seven of them are active.
Poas Volcano is the most popular national park and has the second widest crater in the world while Arenal is famous for its conical shape and is one of the ten most active volcanoes in the world.
The Costa Rican government created 20 national parks, 8 biological reserves and a variety of other protected areas (wildlife refuges) to protect its abundant wildlife and natural treasures.
While rainforests are the most common in the country, cloud forests cover the higher slopes of volcanoes and mountains and fascinate visitors with their mysterious fogs and thick growth of bromeliads and mosses. The dry tropical forests receive less rain and are less biologically diverse but house a stunning collection of flowers and trees.
Rainforests are important for many reasons including:
- They are home to millions of wildlife
- They produce living-giving oxygen for the planet.
- They help against global warming by removing carbón dioxide from the atmostphere
