Costa Rica, is a young region from an geologic point of view. In fact, until a few millions of years ago, there was nothing but water between North America and South America. The apparition of submarine volcanoes and the contact between the tectonic plates worked together and formed Central America, from which Costa Rica is part. The contact between ” Cocos ” and ” Caribe ” plaques caused regions that were originally under the sea to elevate over their original level, transforming what in that time were underground rivers in majestic caverns, whose stalactites and stalagmites formations (formed through thousands of years) are a real masterpiece of nature.
