Welcome to Costa Rica - Guapiles

One of the finest natural areas in the New World, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Truly a naturalist's dream with an incredible diversity of animals and plants, this tiny country is home to more than 800 species of birds, orchids and other spectacular plants, caimans and crocodiles, howler monkeys, three-toed sloth's and possibly the most spectacular bird in the American tropics the resplendent quetzal. Not only is Costa Rica's flora and fauna diverse, it is well protected by a world renowned national park system, and well studied by a long series of scientific investigators. Lying between 2 continents, each with its unique plant and animal diversity, Costa Rica is a land-bridge where species of the 2 continents meet and intermingle.
