Gap Year Programme In Costa Rica
Biologically and geologically, Costa Rica is one of the most diverse countries in the world. Although the area is smaller than Bavaria, this Central American country is home to 5% of the world's total biodiversity. For the adventurous traveller, Costa Rica is a dream destination for activities such as trekking, surfing, snorkelling, horseback riding and zip-lining. The landscape is diverse, starting with beautiful beaches, active volcanoes and dense rainforest.
Ecotourism is also at home here and Costa Rica's “Think Green” philosophy attracts volunteers from all over the world and from various fields.
The southern Pacific coast around the port city of Quepos is home to a variety of excellent national parks, such as the Manuel Antonio and Marino Ballena National Park. The southern end of the country forms the Peninsula de Osa, on Golfo Dulce (Drake Bay), one of the only four tropical fjords in the world. Here is also the Corcovado National Park, renowned trekking and wildlife watching opportunities. It was not for nothing that National Geographic called the park “the most biologically intense place on earth”. The Osa region is also home to the last remaining original tropical rainforest in Pacific Central America.
