In size, Costa Rica is slightly smaller than the U.S. state of West Virginia and a little larger than the country of Denmark. However, its rugged topography of mountains, volcanoes, valleys, rivers, plains and beaches means that ground transportation usually takes longer than most tourists think based on distances in miles or kilometers, due to rough or twisting mountain roads. This fact should be taken into consideration for transportation if you have only a short time in Costa Rica.
