Costa Rica

Costa Rica has now protected about 18% of its land as national parks and was one of the forerunners of what is now known as eco-tourism. Discover some of Costa Rica’s estimated 6,000 types of flowers, or take an aerial tram through the trees, where you’ll see more wildlife than on the ground. The temperature is close to 78 degrees Fahrenheit year round, whether in the rainy or dry season.

Add beaches on its Pacific and Caribbean coasts, and it’s easy to see why more than 1.5 million visitors travelled to Costa Rica in 2007.

The capital San Jose is a sprawling city of about 2 million people. Like most cities this size, traffic can be a problem. The beach is about 2 hours away from San Jose and most tourists land here and then get outside the capital as quickly as possible. For those who want to stay a few days there are museums, good restaurants and many nearby parks.

It has been estimated that 14% of visitors to Costa Rica have cosmetic or dental work done while there. Because the country has been popular for so many years there have been some unfortunate “horror stories” of terrible treatment. With some exceptions, dentists and cosmetic surgeons are well regarded. If you want to be sure to find a good dentist, contact us at Tooth Tourism. We’ve been to Costa Rica, met with the top dentists, and inspected their clinics.
