The National Geographic Traveller (UK) included Costa Rica in its Best of the World 2021 list:
Imagine a country that’s one-quarter national park, a place where you could hike in a rainforest in the morning and surf tropical waves in the afternoon. Imagine an adventure Eden where sustainability was a strategy long before the world caught on, where jaguars prowl in the jungle, harpy eagles fly, and Jesus Christ lizards walk on water before your eyes. That country is Costa Rica.
It’s no wonder. There is something for everyone here.
