Even though Costa Rica is relatively small, it is impossible to cover all of it in a fortnight. We visit some of its most biologically rich areas on this two-week-long tour.

The national park system covers around 12 percent of the total land surface and, together with private reserves, over a quarter of Costa Rica is protected. A chain of volcanic peaks rising to over 3,500 metres in altitude divides the country into separate ecological zones, each with its own characteristic fauna and flora. As a consequence, Costa Rica is remarkably biodiverse for a country of its size, with more bird species per square kilometre than any other.
