Where in the World is Bella - Part 3
Bella is looking for something fun to do and has decided to put together a virtual scavenger hunt and "visit" some interesting and off-the-beaten-path destinations.
Time to put on your travel geography cap and follow Bella around the globe. Can you guess where in the world Bella is?
Bella is in a tropical country with a diverse natural landscape. Coupled with an abundance of outdoor activities and a focus on environmental sustainability and preservation, it is no surprise that the country has been rated as one of the happiest places on Earth.
A vacation to this unique destination will have something for everyone! Visitors can fly through the rain-forest canopy on a zipline, go white-water rafting, climb a volcano, relax on a white-sand beach, check out colorful marine life while snorkeling, or try to hook a big one on a deep-sea fishing excursion.
This destination is home to over 145 different species of frogs. It is estimated that about 200 frogs have already gone extinct here, but the country is taking extreme measures to protect its wildlife.
Bella LOVES to chase frogs, but these look a little different than the ones she's used to!
We wonder what kind of frogs Bella will see on her Jungle Frog Safari?
Need a hint? In 2019, this country received the Champions of the Earth award, the United Nations’s highest environmental honor, for its role in protecting nature and combating climate change.
So where in the world is Bella?
Costa Rica is a rugged, rainforested Central American country with coastlines on the Caribbean and Pacific. Though its capital, San Jose, is home to cultural institutions like the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum, Costa Rica is known for its beaches, volcanoes, and biodiversity. Roughly a quarter of its area is made up of protected jungle, teeming with wildlife including spider monkeys and quetzal birds.
