COSTA RICA, LYING BETWEEN NICARAGUA AND PANAMA IS A COMPLETE
COAST-TO-COST SEGMENT OF THE CENTRAL AMERICAN ISTHMUS.
COSTA RICA'S MOUNTAINS STRETCH ACROSS THE COUNTRY FROM THE
NORTHEAST TO SOUTHEAST AND FORM A FERTILE CENTRAL VALLEY
WHICH IS ABOUT 3,000 SQUARE KILOMETRES. THE CENTRAL AND
TALAMANCA RANGES, ALONG WITH THE GUANACASTE RUN FROM NORTH
TO SOUTH. TROPICAL FORESTS MAY BE FOUND FURTHER TOWARDS THE
COASTAL REGION. VOLCANOS ARE FREQUENT ALONG THE MOUNTAIN
RANGES, SUCH AS POAS VOLCANO AT A HEIGHT OF 2708M. THE
TALLEST MOUNTAIN IN THE COUNTRY IS CHIRRIPO GRANDE AT 3819M.
THERE ARE LOWLANDS ON BOTH COASTLINES, MAINLY SWAMPY ON THE
CARIBBEAN COAST, WITH GRASSLAND SAVANNAH ON THE PACIFIC SIDE
MERGING INTO MANGROVE TOWARDS THE SOUTH.
