About Costa Rica
Costa Rica, which translates to the Rich Coast, provides much of the world’s bananas, coffee, and pineapples. With only 0.1% of the world’s landmass, it still contains about 1/12 of the world’s biodiversity. It is very common to run into any one of the four species of monkey found in Costa Rica. About 25% of the land area is protected by national parks. Costa Rica is a peaceful democracy and the first country in the world to abolish its army. It boasts a literacy rate of 96%, one of the highest in the world. Home to the friendly Ticos, a common phrase among locals is Pura Vida or the Pure Life. The atmosphere is welcoming and laid back, so be sure to leave your watch at home.
Villa de la Luna is located in El Ocotal of the Guanacaste Province, which occupies the NW corner of Costa Rica. Guanacaste offers one of the drier winter seasons and has some of the most beautiful beaches in all of Costa Rica. From December to April, we are likely to see little to no rain, whereas May to November offer consistent showers. The months where the rain is it’s heaviest is September and October.
