Demarcated by Nicaragua in the north and Panama in the south, Costa Rica hugs the Caribbean Sea in the east and the Pacific Ocean in the west. A high plateau divides the American cordilleras in the center, bordered by low coastal lands in the east and in the west. More of half of the population live in this plain with a volcanic fertile soil. Mangroves, marshlands, and sandy beaches characterize the Caribbean coast, which is 212 kilometers long.
More cut and rocky, the Pacific coast spreads out 1,016 kilometers, dotted by gulfs and peninsulas. Costa Rica is home to a rich variety of plants and animals. Over 840 species of birds have been identified in Costa Rica. As is the case in much of Central America, the avian species in Costa Rica are a mix of North and South American species. The country's abundant fruit trees, many of which bear fruit year-round, are hugely important to the birds, some of whom survive on diets that consist only of one or two types of fruit.
"Pura Vida" is the most recognizable phrase attached to Costa Ricans and it reflects the inhabitant's positive view of life.

Also, in Costa Rica, there are no hollow promises but a true political will and a life reference. Everything has been settled for more than 15 years now for a harmonious and lasting development. Ecology in Costa Rica is a position for the whole nation.
