Costa Rica is a green and wet country! It doesn’t rain every day. It doesn’t rain all day. But humidity is high all year round (which is marvelous for your skin!).

Costa Rica has been divided in 12 different zones, called “life zones”. Only one zone is dry and it is called the Tropical Dry Forest. All the other 11 zones are of a humid type, in one way or another: tropical moist forest, tropical wet forest or tropical rain forest.

The country is pretty much a huge rain forest but there are some spots which are of particular interest to the tourist.
