Destination Overview: Costa Rica - With Barcelo

Costa Rica is a peaceful country where conservation of its richly diverse wilderness has been a priority for decades. Protected national parks and wildlife refuges make up more than a quarter of its territory. As a result, it's a renowned ecotourism destination where visitors can explore volcanic mountains, tropical forests and pristine coastal waters teeming with exotic species in their natural habitat. It’s also top-rated for beach vacations. Resorts have sprouted up along its Pacific coast where upscale development is carefully balanced with respect for the natural environment. Many hotels in Costa Rica overlook its beautiful beaches. Costa Rica eliminated its military in 1948 after a devastating civil conflict, and since then conservation has been its transcendent mission.
