The Republic of Costa Rica is bordered by Nicaragua, Panama, the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Costa Rica is an oasis of peace and tranquility in Central America. Democracy, a policy of neutrality and exemplary environmental measures (27% of the country is protected as national parks and nature reserves, and 5% of the world's biodiversity is to be found here) have ensured this paradise remains pristine, indeed the country has seen a boom in eco-tourism in recent years. The vegetation varies from evergreen rainforests, mangrove swamps and oak forests to pampa, and is the natural habitat of an astonishingly wide variety of animals and plants. The face of the country is dominated by wide strips of cultivated land where tropical fruits and spices, used in its diverse and delicious cuisine, are grown. The colloquial term for a native of Costa Rica is "Tico" or "Tica", the local language is Spanish, "Pura Vida" being the omnipresent motto that pervades life here.
