Welcome to Costa Rica Travel
Costa Rica is a beautiful exotic country located in Central America. Costa Rica is well known for its ecotourism, and the rainforests are perfect for backpackers. Once you seen enough, (or if you are not into backpacking in the rainforests) traveling through the tourist spots and the country is just as exciting and interesting.
Ecotourism travel is about adventure in the wilderness and learning about the local cultures. It is the destinations of travel where the attraction is nature and the cultural heritage of the region.
Ecotourism travel is very beneficial to both the traveler and ecological environments. An ecotourist learns about awesome natural environments, and helps to support conservation efforts.
Costa Rica is a popular country for ecotourism travel. Every year about half-and-million people travel to Costa Rica. Also about 27% of Costa Rica is nature reserves, national parks, and protected rainforests.
Now even though I have done several things within my travel at Costa Rica, this website is about my account of a backpacking travel into cloud forest that I have experienced for 5 days. This website was created with what I have documented while backpacking, and basic advice and information I have included.

The native people in Costa Rica are called Ticos and are usually very friendly. It is really one of the best places to go for an tropical vacation. It's a spanish speaking country's though, so make sure to brush up on your spanish before you go!
Even if you're not an experienced backpacker, you can enjoy Cloud Forest by utilizing the services of tour guides or using the suspension bridges in the Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve to enjoy the natural beauty without disturbing the ecosystem. To combine your enjoyment of Cloud Forest - or any part of Costa Rica - with some comfort on your vacation, take advantage of timeshare rental throughout the country. Many owners looking to sell timeshares decide to rent their units while searching for appropriate buyers, meaning you can get great deals on spacious accommodations and save hundreds off the cost of hotels.
