Costa Rica is a popular nature travel destination, and its main competitive advantage is its well-established system of national parks and protected areas, covering around a quarter of the country’s land area. The country also has plenty of wonderful beaches, both in the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, within short travel distances between both coasts and also several active volcanoes that can be visited with safety.
Costa Rica historically managed to stay away from the political turmoil and violence from which neighbouring nations still suffer. Costa Rica is the only country I know that constitutionally abolished its army permanently in the 1940s. They invested the saved money in schools and hospitals. It has also managed to be the only Latin American country included in the list of the world’s 22 oldest democracies, paying homage to its stance as a peaceful and politically stable nation. Costa Rica has also consistently been among the top Latin American countries in the Human Development Index.
The Costa Rican are called ‘Ticos’.
Costa Rica produces ca. 90% of their power out of renewable energies (Germany as of 2015: ca 20%).
