2005 Jan Costa Rica

quick 5 day trip to Costa Rica
Despite its tiny size, Costa Rica is an extremely varied country.  At 51,000 sq km, it is slightly smaller than the state of West Virginia in the USA and slightly larger than Switzerland, yet is encompasses one of the world's most diverse natural landscapes.

When on the plane, it had to be de-iced, then we had engine problems sitting on the runway.....better there than in the sky  HOUSTON, WE HAVE A PROBLEM..... no one to fix or check out the engine, off the plane, flight cancelled, back to the ticket counter, missed our connecting flight out of Atlanta, flights only every other day to Liberia airport (no looking good).

flights completely rearranged, now flying to Atlanta then to Miami to spend the night (on the airlines expense), we received food vouchers to eat at the airport......hummm.....will it be Ruby Tuesday's or Ruby Tuesdays  (they only have one restaurant), too many decisions to be made here.

Divided neatly by a series of volcanic mountain chains that run the length of the country from Nicaragua to Panama, Costa Rica hosts markedly different climates on its Pacific and Caribbean sides.  Those in turn support entirely separate assemblages of plants and animals.

Divided neatly by a series of volcanic mountain chains that run the length of the country from Nicaragua to Panama, Costa Rica hosts markedly different climates on its Pacific and Caribbean sides. Those in turn support entirely separate assemblages of plants and animals.

At the lenght of 1254km, the Pacific coastline is infinitely varied as it twists and truns around gulfs, peninsulas, and many small coves.  Rugged, rocky headlands alternating with classic white- and black-sand beaches and palm trees make this a tropical paradise along some stretches.

Strong tidal action creates an excellent habitat for waterbirds as well as visually dramatic crashing surf (an excellent habitat for surfers).  Inland, the landscapes of the Pacific lowlands are equally dynamic, ranging from dry deciduous forests and open cattle country in the north to lush and magnificent tropical rain forests in the south.

Inland, the landscapes of the Pacific lowlands are equally dynamic, ranging from dry deciduous forests and open cattle country in the north to lush and magnificent tropical rain forests in the south.

Monotonous in comparison, the Caribbean coastline runs a straight 212km along a low flat plain that is strongly inundated with brackish lagoons and waterlogged forests.  A lack of strong tides allows plants to grown right over the water's edge alng inland sloughs, creating a wall of green vegetation.

Running down the center of teh country, the mountainous spine of Costa Rica is a land of active volcanoes, clear, tumbling streams, and chilled peaks clad in impenetrable cloud forests.  These mountain ranges generally follow a norhtwest to southeast line, with the highest and most dramatic peaks near the Panamanian border (culminating at the 3820m high Cerro Chirripo).

The difficulties of traveling through and farming on these steep slopes have until recently saved much of this area from development and made it a haven for wildlife.

Playa Tamarindo Beach, Costa Rica

The surfing is first-rate, the beaches are beautiful, the town is laid-back and there's no shortage of things to do.

Nature buffs will enjoy watching leatherback turtles nest at the nearby national park and adventurers will get a thrill out of good waves, sunset ATV tours and zip-line adventures.
