Costa Rica

It is uncertain if this small Central American country hosts 51 or 52 hummingbird species in its seven provinces. “Pura Vida Country” is a hummingbird Paradise probably due to its tropical climate and diversity of altitude of a mountain range called the Cordillera of Talamanca, which crosses the middle of the territory.
