Costa Rica

Costa Rica is one of the smallest countries in the central America, that unites two continents. It is washed by the waters of the Pacific Ocean at south-west and by the waters of the Caribbean Sea at north-east. Costa Rica is a reserve country (there are 74 reserves), where an abundance of flora and fauna is surrounded by mountains and the ocean. This country is a true heaven for both beach and active kinds of rest.
