Costa Rica

Known for its coastlines, mountain ranges, volcanoes and diverse wildlife, Costa Rica’s rich biodiversity makes it a prevalent destination for eco-tourists. Traditionally a producer of agricultural goods such as coffee and bananas, its economy has diversified and tourism now ranks as the country’s number one wage earner.

Bordered by Nicaragua to the north and Panama to the south, the republic of Costa Rica has shorelines on the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea. The feeling that encompasses Costa Rica is one of farmers and ranchers. There is no holiday in Costa Rica that takes place without a support to its agricultural heritage. Horses and cowboy culture are omnipresent to Costa Rica and Ticos are proud of it.

The native population of Costa Rica is far fewer than other countries in Central America. Those indigenous that have survived today live for the most part in remote areas.

Costa Rica has a significant Afro-Caribbean (Gariragu) population. This population lives mainly in the Caribbean province of Limon. The descendants of Jamaicans who came to work in the railroads and banana plantations, Afro-Costa Ricans now make eight percent of the population. English and Creole are the main languages spoken by Afro-Costa Ricans.

There is a large Nicaraguan population in Costa Rica, which can be a cause of conflict. And also a growing Colombian and Venezuelan people. The United States also provides immigrants to Costa Rica. Retirees and other people hoping to find a more tranquil way of life. It’s estimated that one-in-nine people living in Costa Rica are immigrants of some sort or another.

One of the most thriving and politically stable countries in the Central America, Costa Rica is the only Central American state without a permanent standing army.

  • I have traveled with David Reyes in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala, Belize, and Mexico. He is an excellent guide and leader…very knowledgeable about Mayan history and culture. He is an excellent interpreter of and guide to the contemporary society of these countries as well. And then there are the birds! He can spot, identify and beautifully photograph these big and little beauties that are found throughout Central America. He is dynamic, energetic, humorous, multilingual, and a people person bringing out the best in all of his travelers. I eagerly look forward to my next Wonders for Wanders trip! Sharon B, New York

  • One more full day in Antigua, Guatemala. I highly recommend travel to this country. If you want to travel in Guatemala safely and comfortably...I recommend having David Reyes plan your tour. Does not matter how many people are in your group. David guides one person...to a group of 16-18 people. I thought that our group of 14 was ideal. David has a degree in Tourism. He is highly knowledgable. His English is perfect. I met David, several years ago, when he was our Tour Director for a tour to Guatemala and Belize. Since that time, David has led trips for my groups to Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, and Mexico.

  • This trip was 5 star! You cannot beat the organization and agenda skills of Kathy partnered with David’s “on the ground” knowledge, skill set and personal interest in every individual. We smoothly sailed into and out of Honduras and for those with special interests such as birding or hiking, David did not disappoint. It was all there!!!
