Costa Rica is one of the most bio-diverse countries on the face of the Earth, and the Southern Zone takes the lead as the most diverse regions within the entire country. Countless species make their home within this region. Toucans perch on trees outside your window, and white-face monkeys bounce playfully along palm tree-lined beaches. The Southern Zone is your chance to experience the lush, tropical beauty that is Costa Rica. The Southern Zone is all about diversity, from the rugged landscape to the amazing wildlife. Hiking through the dense jungle or swimming in natural waterfalls, watching whales with their young, or lounging out by the pool, you can find it all in Southern Costa Rica. For such a small corner of Costa Rica, there is an amazing range of diversity – in geography, climate, history, wildlife, and social life.
