But there is so much more to the tropics. The area known as the tropics covers roughly one-third of the earth's surface. The region lies between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn, the area closest to the equator. Because of the region's proximity to the sun, the area is known for abundant sunshine and warm temperatures. This hot, humid, and pleasant year-round weather draws tens of millions of visitors annually.

Whether you choose a high-end five-star resort or if you prefer sleeping on a beach under the open stars, there is something almost primal about our desire to visit, if not live, in the tropics.
The tropical splendor is hardly summed up in beaches and pina coladas, as its flora and fauna set this region of the world apart from the rest. Each plant and animal is optimized to thrive in the luxurious ecosystem of the tropics makes them some of the most diverse creatures on earth.
