About Costa Rica


The World's #1 Ecotourism Destination

Home to the most biologically intense place on Earth according to National Geographic Society

A Modern Bride top 5 Honeymoon Destination

Experts at travel trade publications label Costa Rica as the world's premier eco-tourism destination. The Corcovado National Park in the Osa Peninsula has been labeled as the Earth's most biologically intense place by the National Geographic Society.  Renowned honeymoon publications such as Modern Bride list Costa Rica in the top 5 honeymoon destinations in the world.

This beautiful Central American country offers visitors a wonderful blend of adventure, nature and relaxation. Costa Rica's growing popularity among American and European travelers is based on its political and social stability, open society, strong conservation policies and a concern for sustainable development. For the past 60 years, Costa Rica has been an oasis of peace and stability in a region marked by unrest and political upheaval.

Costa Rica has been a democratic country for the last 110 years.  During the 1940s, the country established progressive social security programs, implemented free and compulsory elementary and high school education, and abolished the armed forces.  These governmental programs helped strengthen the middle classes and spurred economic growth, achieving high health, education, income per capita and employment indexes, unprecedented in Latin America.

The economy has successfully shifted from a traditional agricultural base, which had offered bananas and coffee as the main export products, to a service-based economy, with high tech and tourism leading the way. Non-traditional exports such as organic vegetables, pineapples, medical equipment and microprocessors are strategically complemented by the selling of services, such as corporate logistics, software design, medical services, research and customer services, to an international market.
