Costa Rica Vacation Packages: No Artificial Ingredients

Costa Rica vacation packages can bundle the places you most want to see--but they will probably include a preserve or national park. That's because this small country is the conservation capital of Central America, and an ecological mecca for environmentalists the world over. In a land that is just 200 miles long, the people have dedicated themselves and their government to the natural beauty of their homeland.

Their tourism ads proudly declare: "Costa Rica, No Artificial Ingredients." These people invite you to immerse yourself in the glorious wonders of their country.

Occasionally, an insect or spider visitor might decide, reasonably, that your warm room is just the spot to settle in. Think of this encounter as a great story to tell the folks back home.
