Costa Rica is often referred to as a paradise on Earth. It owes its name to the beautiful beaches, national parks and protected areas that provide a home for more than half a million animal species. As part of the Escape to series, the director Libor Špaček visited Costa Rica and created a trilogy of documentaries about this Central American country. The second part is dedicated to rain forests and their inhabitants: insects, reptiles, amphibians and birds. It draws inspiration from foreign wildlife documentaries in presenting both the animals and the steps Costa Rica takes to preserve its natural heritage. This country can take pride in the fact that it ranks among one of the twenty countries with the largest biodiversity.
