Kermit - Electric Car
XXXX based on 2 adults, 17 day trip
Costa Rica is hot. Almost 30 percent of the country’s surface consists of protected jungle, one of the results of 40 years of consistent reforestation. In addition, Costa Rica abolished its army in 1948 and its energy supply has been 98% renewable for the past 6 years. The United Nations declared Costa Rica the ‘greenest country in the world’ in September 2019.
The Costa Rican jungle is teeming with wildlife. Your Green Circle Experience will offer you unrivalled opportunities to enjoy Costa Rica’s abundant flora and fauna wherever you go. Sloths, monkeys, crocodiles, toucans, turtles…..You can spot them anywhere and the Costa Rican nature is often very accessible. With or without a guide.
Costa Rica truly is a little paradise. And it is our responsibility to keep it that way. If you choose to book our Green Circle Experience, you choose to support that goal. But you also choose to live your dream in an unprecedented way.
Life’s like a Movie!

The country’s exuberant nature makes it a true paradise and your perfect travel destination. Nothing’s better than nature itself. Kermit has returned to its natural habitat.
Kermit is a great car for couples or small families who like to travel light. It’s amazing design will certainly attract admiring comments from anyone you will meet during your trip. Tip: try to spot all frogs on Kermit during your stay in Costa Rica!
