Discovered in 1570 by the Spanish explorer Diego Garcia de Palacio, the archaeological site is one of the most important and most visited Mayan sites of Central America.

Sovereign Nature at the Tortuguero National Park

Parco Nazionale_TortugueroIf there's a place where nature reigns supreme, that's the Tortuguero National Park, a protected area located in the north eastern part of Costa Rica.

Sport fishing_in_Costa_RicaThere are so many places where you can go sport fishing in Costa Rica: at sea, by the coast, at tropical rivers, or at mountain lakes and there are plenty of different species to fish at any time of the year.

In this maze of rivers and forest, fishing is allowed throughout the year, except during the months of April, May, and June.
