Costa Rica

Take a little country without too much history…
Place it at the narrowest of the Central American isthmus. Squeeze it between two oceans.

Insert some high mountains and a dozen or so active volcanoes…

Add colors, lots of them, emphasizing on the green.
Pour some water, taking it from the rain, the mist, the rivers and the many water falls…
Place under heat of the radiant sun, and consider some wind to dry things out…

Cover with fantastic trees and wrap it with the great variety of the tropical landscapes :
rainforest, cloudforest, tropical dry forest, mountain & alpine forest, paramos, savannas and of course the mangroves…

Add lots of life with about 158 species of amphibians, 221 mammals, and 850 species of birds, 1080 fresh or salt-water fishes and 350,000 different types of insects...

In short, get a rich blend representing 5% of the fauna and flora species known on the planet ...
For the rest, use your imagination…

As for the Homo sapiens kind, choose truly nice individuals...tolerant, with a high dose of fun and fiesta genes mixed with a very cool and relaxed way of life… a pacifist society that abolished its army.

Decorate with some movie-like sunsets, fireflies that flick in the night and a star-filled sky.

For sound, record some nature songs : tiny frogs, bell-birds, and even howler monkeys. Mix in some salsa, cumbia or merengue... Enjoy Costa Rica!

Pura Vida !
