Villatoro Costa Rica is overflowing with rare, endangered and exquisite wildlife. However the truth is that poaching, hunting and illegal animal trade do exist here. The Costa Rican government is doing what it can possibly do to strip down and capture the wrongdoers, but in the mess creatures get wounded, orphaned, seized, deserted and suffer from habitat loss. Fortunately, Costa Rica is also overflowing with wildlife rescue centers. The majority are privately operated with incredible volunteer programs and extremely efficient conservation efforts. All of them are open to educate the general public. San Jose and the Central Valley Region Simon Bolivar Zoo This is the national zoo, with tiny cages filled with native animals and a few international species. Where is It: Avenida 11, Calles 7 and 9 Panaca This is a full day’s visit! You don’t want to miss the interactive, educational five shows where visitors come into sensory contact with the largest collection of animals from the domestic zoology (over 3500 animals from more than 3000 races) and with agriculture, nature, and all resources the park provides, as well as the agro-industrial productive processes.traveling in Central America Traveling to Costa Rica costa rica travel traveling in Central America What To Do In Suchitoto With Kids Posted By: Marina K. Villatoro Suchitoto is a teeny tiny colonial town in central El Salvador. It’s actually a full on cowboy town and the cowboy culture is the most predominant factor of the people here. Things To Do in Suchitoto As we went for a little walk around the central park, we got lucky enough to see a horse show with a bunch of cowboys in full cowboy gear getting drunk atop their steed. I too fell into the swing of things, got me a cowboy hat, and had a blast showing my boys the different horses and their odd saddles. If there was no horse parade, that walk would probably have been 15 minutes, the show added on another 15. We ended the self-made tour with a yummy pupasa, El Salvador’s staple food. The other thing to do here is to tour Lake Suchitlan. When asked where the lake is, someone cunning said it’s only a 15 minute walk. This sounded appealing to my husband and me, but with a 6 year old lazybones, we decided to drive. Thank god! I don’t know how fast this guy runs, but it’s about 15 minute DRIVE – up hill!traveling in Central America Suchitoto El Salvador traveling in Central America Guatemala Travel – Hiking Through The Jungle Looking For Ancient Mayan Temples Posted By: Marina K.

Villatoro Guatemala holds ninety two safeguarded areas comprising over 28% of the country’s national territory. Many of these safeguarded areas were created in the year 1990. All volcanoes are protected areas, including national parks, biosphere reserves, wildlife refuges, private nature reserves, natural monuments, and biotopes. CONAP (The National Protected Areas Council), created in 1990, and is fully in charge of administering all of Guatemala’s protected areas along with CONAMA (National Environmental Commission). Unfortunately, with so many issues at hand, the Guatemalan government doesn’t put enough emphasis on preserving and protecting these areas the way they should. CONAP is extremely underfunded and understaffed. Logging, sewage run off and trash disposal are still a huge problem. In addition to these issues is the Peten deforestation which is also an issue for other parks. Currently, most of the protection originates from private organizations and since 2005 the government of Guatemala is taking the initiative by training a particular police force designated for these safeguarded areas, mainly the Maya Biosphere Reserve where most of the wildlife poaching and logging continue to exist.traveling in Central America National Parks of Central America central america traveling in Central America Guatemala Travel – Discover Beautiful Diving Spots And Caves Posted By: Marina K.

Villatoro This is a selection of six of my favorite hotels in Costa Rica and a small description of them, Enjoy! Korrigan Lodge in Puerto Viejo This is a great option for peace and nature lovers in Costa Rica’s Caribbean region. Korrigan Lodge consists of a number of bungalows nicely placed in the middle of the Costa Rican jungle and a few steps away from the beach. Then get ready for the Breakfast, because it’s not only filling but also very tasty. Turtle Beach Lodge, Tortuguero Turtle Beach Lodge is the best option if you are planning on visiting the beautiful Tortuguero Village or Tortuguero National Park on your Costa Rican Vacation. The service is outstanding. They are so helpful and nice but at the same time they don’t intrude with you and your relaxation at all. The food is very tasty unlike many other hotels’ food. We got the opportunity to see many exotic animals running around freely in the surroundings so I guess it would also be great for nature lovers.

One is located in Monteverde, where they offer sky tram, sky trek (canopy), sky walk (hanging bridges) and a serpentarium. The other one can be found in Arenal, where you will find a sky tram, sky trek, a butterfly garden, and a new exciting adventure, the sky trek night tour.

Villatoro A friend of mine as well as her husband own Tropic Fins Adventures in Puerto Jimenez, Costa Rica, one day they invited us to join them on an exciting In-shore fishing trip during an afternoon. I was a bit nervous since I’m not a fisherman and my husband had about as much experience as I did. But we accepted the challenge and it was great! Now, Cory was our captain and guide for this adventure, he has over 15 years of fishing experience and has taken out professional fishermen and showed them the best times of their lives. Yet I feel his job is a lot easier when he’s out with fellow fishermen, rather newbies such as us. Anyway he made our first fishing experience so fun, that my husband is already making plans for another one. Our in shore adventure started with a 20 minute boat ride to the middle of Golfo Dulce. Once we anchored the boat Cory was kind enough to prepare all the rods. And oh my god! When the first bite happened, the adrenaline that started to flow through us was hard to describe.Puerto Jimenez puerto jimenez fishing fishing vacations costa rica travel Puerto Jimenez A List Of My Favorite Sites Filled With Information For Expats In Costa Rica Posted By: Marina K.

One of the best countries you can visit here is Costa Rica. You can as well go and visit San Jose where you can find a lot of things to do and enjoy during your stay.

Many travelers like to make this their home base for day trips to some of the country’s most popular attractions: Volcano Poas and Irazu, coffee plantation tours, nature parks and a lot more.

Arenal is my favorite Costa Rican region for family vacations, which is why whenever I come to this area I try to stay in a different hotel, just because I want to see new things. Here are 3 hotels I loved in Arenal: El Silencio del Campo This is a beautiful hotel overlooking the Arenal Volcano that consists of a series of cabins spread out along beautiful gardens. The cabins are spacious and private making it the perfect destination for family vacations and honeymoons. But this hotel’s best feature is the on site hot springs. What could be better than going to naturally heated hot springs without having to leave the hotel? My experience in this beautiful place was great. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The restaurant has a good ambiance and the food is very tasty. The room’s decoration is inviting and warm. It also has amazing views of the Arenal Volcano.
