Costa Rica

Costa Rica bloomed during the 1980s when ecotourism started, and the country realized how they could utilize it. Travelers began to take notice of the unique flora and fauna while locals were quick of wit to perserve what came as a blessing to them. As tourism continued to bloom and bestow the much needed boost in economy, Costa Ricans still remembered to care for their own. These actions keep Costa Rica all-natural and eco-friendly, from their street corner treat vendor to the small time restaurants. What’s even more surprising is at least twenty-seven percent of the country is protected as a national park, wildlife refuge, or reserve. The Costa Rican government indeed protects, as well as cares for its wards without sacrifices, but instead live in harmony with nature.
