‘Tis the season for thankfulness! And this November, as we reflect on another year in Tamarindo Beach, Guanacaste, we find we have so much to be grateful for.
We’re Thankful for… Our Biodiversity
It’s no secret that Costa Rica has a reputation for being one of the world’s most nature-rich, biodiverse destinations in the world.
That’s due to many things – from our rare ecosystems (like tropical dry forests and mangroves) the vast variations in topography and scenery you can experience, even in a country smaller than the state of West Virginia. In Costa Rica, you can literally wake up to sunrise over the Caribbean and sunset on the Pacific. You can whitewater raft the same day you climb a volcano. In a single day, you can spot howler monkeys, keel-billed toucans, leaf frogs, three-toed sloths, and even endangered to critically endangered species.
And right here in and around Tamarindo Beach, Guanacaste, you can experience some of the world’s last tropical dry forests, watch endangered sea turtles lay their eggs, hike an ancient volcano’s fumaroles and hot springs, and boat through one of Central America’s largest concentration of aquatic birds and the most important migratory bird site of the Mesoamerican Pacific.
As we said, there’s a lot to be thankful for. And we’re just getting started!
