Treat yourself to nature hikes through the rain forest, zip line like never before, take an ATV tour to towering water falls, ride a horse on the beach, surf, paddle board, yoga, sport fishing that only few places in the world can touch and when the day is winding down enjoy a magical sunset.
The “Ticos” will welcome you with open arms into their country that has NO military. Instead, Costa Rica focuses on education, health care, the stable economy, renewable energy and preserving its natural beauty.
Did You Know?
The Costa Rican government is democratic, with presidential elections every 4 years, and no standing army.
Costa Rica has a population of 4.1 million. The capital is San Jose, with a metro area population of approximately 2 million. The life expectancy is almost 77 years, one of the highest in the world.
Costa Rica has a literacy rate just over 96%. For rural areas where children can’t make it to school, lessons are taught over a
national radio station.
Costa Rica is the second largest exporter of bananas in the world after Ecuador.
Tourism is Costa Rica’s leading industry with over two million visitors arriving each year. Not too bad for a country smaller than the size of Lake Michagan.
And… Costa Rica is NOT a 3rd World Country.
