Travel to Costa Rica for the National Parks, Volcanoes and Wildlife
With volcanoes, cloud forests and tropical wildlife, national parks cover almost a quarter of the country’s land area—the largest percentage of a country in the world. Set along the Pacific Ring of Fire, Costa Rica’s volcanoes are a key part of the country’s landscape. In addition to their natural beauty, the bases of the volcanoes are rich in minerals and great for adventurous exploration.
If you’re visiting for the monkeys, they like to hang out daily at Secrets Papagayo Costa Rica.
