Costa Rica has only 0.1% of the worlds land mass but it contains 5% of the world’s biodiversity which makes Costa Rica the country with the greatest density of species in the world. Over 25% of Costa Rica has been set aside in National Parks and reserves. There are more than 500,000 species of animal and over 800 bird species.

Costa Rica has an estimated population of over 4 million people with 2/3rd of this population living in the Central Valley. The majority are descended from Spanish settlers. Significant numbers of Costa Ricans are also descents of Italians, Germans, Jewish and Polish descent. Today the indigenous population numbers around 1.7%. Christianity is a major religion in Costa Rica with 3 out of 4 still adhering to Catholicism. There is freedom of worship; however most of the population practices the Catholic.

Locals refer to themselves as Ticos (male) and Ticas (female). The Tico ideal is that of a very friendly, helpful, laid back, unhurried, educated and environmentally aware people. The phrase Pura Vida is the Costa Rican motto. The phrase means pure life and it encapsulates the ideology of living in peace in a calm manner, appreciating life, family and friends.

Thrill seekers can fly through forests on zip lines, peer into boiling volcanoes, surf oversized waves and dive with dolphins and whales – all in the course of a normal day. Then again, if you have some serious chilling to do, you can always lounge in a hammock and enjoy the pure life or PURA VIDA.

In contrast, Liberia, the province’s capital, has 47,000 inhabitants.

Officially designated by the government for tourism development, Liberia Airport became the country’s second International airport in December 2002. Since the last decade Guanacaste has become the most popular destination in Costa Rica because of its naturals wonders, climate and tourist facilities.
