The WVAC2019 is a great opportunity to visit Costa Rica. This country is a small beautiful piece of paradise located in Central America. It is one of the very few countries in the world without an army. With just 51,000 km2, it houses 5% of the world’s biodiversity – a great example on how “life connects all”. Imagine driving from a cloudy rainforest down to an exotic luscious tropical beach within a few hours. Volcanoes, lakes, rivers, mangroves, beaches, cloud forests, rainforests, and diving sites all nearby. Ticos, as Costa Ricans are commonly called, are known to be very warm, very pura vida!! Everyone visiting the WVAC2019 will feel right at home in Costa Rica.
