Costa Rica

Costa Rica is one of 7 countries that make up the great isthmus that connects North and South America. This biodiverse hotspot, flanked by seas and divided by mountains, has 12 major ecosystems. From the annual turtle invasion on the beaches, to the dazzling birds in the clouded forests, to big cat predators on the jungle floor, Costa Rica is a miraculous melting pot of animals from different continents. Its extensive tropical forests are also home to "prehensile" tailed animals, both monkeys and mammals; this grasping appendage evolving to help them navigate the thick, tangled jungles that exist here.
