Costa Rica has twelve of the life zones classified by L. Holdridge in 1971. In simple words, these life zones are defined by the variation of temperature and precipitation in a given area. The elevation is another factor that influences an area’s ecosystem.

Therefore our company has designed different vacation packages that include most of these live zones, from the lowlands in the Pacific coast with its tropical dry forest to the middle elevation forest in Monteverde with its exuberant Cloud Forest ecosystem. Other itineraries include the subalpine ecosystems of the Highlands like Irazú Volcano or Cerro Chirripó, ending up in the lowland tropical rain forest of the Caribbean coast.
