The Shades Of Costa Rica

The Shades Of Costa Rica

NOTE: The content on this page was last updated on May 18th, 2017.

Most people know Costa Rica for its lush green surroundings, however only after a visit can anyone truly appreciate the various shades of Costa Rica. This country is more colourful than you might imagine, and such beauty is not difficult to find if you are open to it. As Ferris Bueller famously said, “life moves pretty fast… if you don’t stop and look around once and a while, you might miss it” – the same is true for the intensity and variety of colours that exist in Costa Rica. A large portion of this country’s beauty can be seen in its flora and fauna, and since I am constantly surrounded by both, I regularly feel as if I am living inside a crayon box. Perhaps crayola would be open to developing a Costa Rica-inspired palette, and if so, you’d likely see the following 12-pack at your child’s next birthday party.
