The March issue of National Geographic Traveller (UK) is out now. The special-edition 100th issue celebrates 11 years of the magazine and its award-winning content with an 18-page feature charting its highlights over the past decade.
The main feature this month focuses on Costa Rica. With its dizzying array of national parks and dedication to renewable energy, this nation of just five million people has become synonymous with sustainable lodgings, community-enhancing tours and extravagant biodiversity, making it a fitting country to celebrate in the anniversary issue. Ecosystems ranging from cloud forest to Caribbean coast mean there’s much here to protect — and much to experience, too.
