Welcome to Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a peaceful democracy with no army and very little crime is often referred to as the “Switzerland of Central America”. The country boasts more school teachers than police and its literacy rate, is at 93 percent, one of the highest in the world. Costa Ricans are very happy, laid-back souls--they have never been at war and they have never been hungry. They genuinely like Americans and will gladly trade two or three words of English for two or three words of Spanish.

For sun worshippers, the weather is especially spectacular. Between December and late May, there is very little or no rain. Even June through November, the constant sunshine is only interrupted by occasional refreshing late afternoon showers.

The weather is always warm (80 degrees plus) on the northwest Pacific coast where the villas are located. In San Jose and the Central highlands, temperatures are much cooler with high around 78 degrees and lows in the 60's.

The amazing biological diversity that exists in Costa Rica, within such a small geographical area (about the size of West Virginia), is one of the largest in the world. The flora and fauna are not only precious, but also spectacular. Costa Rica has over 237 species of mammals, more varieties of butterflies than the entire continent of Africa, and more than 150 species of reptiles and amphibians. There are also more than 1,800 species of orchids native to the country and more than 850 species of birds (more than all the species in the entire North American continent).

A quaint Costa Rican trait is that on any given day, you will see a farmer and his ox cart walking alongside the street--a true sign that Westernization has not invaded this untouched beauty.
