Fauna

Costa Rica is a land of awe-inspiring natural divesity

...and beauty.

Costa Rica is a land of awe-inspiring natural diversity and beauty. It is the size of the relatively small state West Virginia, yet it hosts more than half of all living organisms on earth.

Costa Rica has four species of monkeys, 220 species of reptiles, 5000 species of grasshoppers, and 10% of all known butterflies in the world.

It has more than 850 bird species, including toucans, macaws, quetzals, and many other breath-taking birds.

There are anteaters, tapirs and exotic ducks with scarlet bills.
The wonder of Costa Rica is that, more than likely, you will see these fantastic creatures, because, for some reason, they reveal themselves here. Maybe it is because they are as happy and as proud to be Costa Rican as the humans who inhabit this beautiful land.

The frogs are magical, the snakes are mystical, and the sloths are slow and magnificent.
