The warm and friendly people of Costa Rica claim they live the ‘Pura Vida’, and seeing as they live in the world’s first carbon neutral nation, they are both literally and figurative correct! The poster-child for eco-tourism, Costa Rica is a quiet and peaceful place that is all about unspoiled and pure nature. Blessed with both a Pacific and Caribbean coast, there are miles of spectacular beaches that frame a land of lofty mist-swathed volcanoes and tracts of lush, virgin rain- and cloud-forest that are stuffed with all sorts of colourful and exotic creatures, all drenched in a balmy, tropical warmth. Yes, we fancy a slice of that ‘Pura Vida’ too…
