Marinas in Costa Rica

Costa Rica, (officially the Republic of Costa Rica) is a country in Central America, bordered by Nicaragua to the north, Panama to the east and south, the Pacific Ocean to the west and south and the Caribbean Sea to the east.
The country is very proud of its green credentials and although it only occupies 0.03% of the earths surface it is home to 6% of the globes biodiversity, and just over 25% of the country is protected territory in the form of parks. The country is aiming to be carbon neutral by the year 2021.

The country has an all year round tropical climate which is popular with the growing amount of visitors to the country. Both coasts are lined with hundreds of white sandy beaches and the interior has lush tropical forest to explore. Tip, if you hire a car make it a 4 x 4 !! The capital is San Jose and the official language is Spanish.

For tourism the high season in Costa Rica is December through April, as this is the dry season. The rainy season, which lasts from May to November, usually sees sunny mornings, with rain showers in late afternoon and evening. Secondary roads can become rutted during those months, hence the tip on four-wheeldrive vehicles. Overall, the climate is tropical, with an average temperature of 22°C. It can be much hotter along the coastal areas of the country, and much cooler in the mountains.


Costa Rica is composed of seven provinces, which in turn are divided into 81 cantons each of which is directed by a mayor. Mayors are chosen democratically every four years by each canton's people. There are no provincial legislatures. The cantons are further divided into districts (distritos). The provinces are:
1. Alajuela
2. Cartago
3. Guanacaste
4. Heredia
5. Limón
6. Puntarenas
7. San José
