Good afternoon teacher and classmates. My name is TritrapornVijitrothai. Today, I’m going to present about Costa Rica
In this presentation, I will present about geography, religion, culture, food, places, transportation.
Let’ begin with map. Costa Rica is a country in Central America, bordered by Nicaragua to the north, Panama to the southeast, the Pacific Ocean to the west, and the Caribbean Sea to the east.
Costa Rica is a tropical country with two distinct seasons—dry and wet. However, within these seasons and in different parts of the country there is lots of variation. The Guanacaste region is the driest, while the highlands are generally colder and misty. The Caribbean coast has unpredictable (and usually wetter) weather, and the Pacific coast can be hot year-round.
According to the most recent nationwide survey of religion in Costa Rica, conducted in 2007 by the University of Costa Rica, found that 71 percent of the population identify themselves as Roman Catholics (with 44.9 percent practicing, 25.6 percent non-practicing), 14 percent are Evangelical Protestants, 11 percent report that they do not have a religion, and 4 percent declare that they belong to another religion.
Although the most common dance is the Salsa, Costa Rican's also enjoy the hypnotic and rhythmic Latin beats combined with sensual movements of cumbia, lambada, marcada, merengue, soca, and the Costa Rican Swing, danced with surefooted grace.
Gallo Pinto: translates to “spotted rooster” is consider the national dish of this country. Is made by mixing rice and beans with some bell pepper and onions and is served for breakfast. This dish is accompanied by egg, ham or cheese. A really hearty breakfast to start the day!
Casado: translates to “married” is served in every households of the country for lunch. This dish consists in rice, beans a vegetable stew, salad, meat and fried plantain. Is a very healthy and wholesome meal!
Costa Rica has many varieties of sweets such as capuchino (an ice cream cone dipped in chocolate), Tresleches (a three-layered custard flan, and the national desert), and Cajeta de coco (a fudge made of coconut, tapa dulce, and orange peel Cono).
There are a variety of options for moving between destinations in Costa Rica - domestic flights, rental cars, shuttles, private vans, ferries, public bus, and even horseback. Your travel routes, budget, and length of stay are all important factors to consider when deciding on one or a combination of these options, and the guide below can help with a detailed description of each travel mode. While transportation modes may vary in flexibility and comfort, each is an opportunity to take in Costa Rica’s amazing scenery.
Costa Rica's incredible biodiversity and variable climate offers a multitude of travel destinations to explore and enjoy. Costa Rica's Top Destinations offer visitors a wide range of activities and accommodations that have attracted visitors from all over the world. In many of these destinations, visitors are captivated by the unique natural landscape and habitat. Other visitors are drawn to a destination’s developed tourism infrastructure with tours, nightlife, and restaurant options.
Once a quite fishing hamlet, Tamarindo has evolved to be the area’s most developed and accessible tourist town.
One of Costa Rica's most notable natural features is the Arenal Volcano.
Nestled along parts of Guanacaste's most lovely coastline is Brasilito Beach, a sprawling grey-sand beach and charming town.
Bahia Salinas is located in the far northwestern corner of Costa Rica's Guanacaste Province, near the border with Nicaragua.
A haven for birdwatchers and hikers awaits visitors around the town of San Gerardo de Dota, huddled up against the roaring Talamanca Mountain Range.
