Costa Rica tourism is very popular. Our country is one of the most beautiful and diverse places on planet earth.
There are more than 500,000 species of plants and animals. This represents 6% of the world’s biodiversity in just 51,100 km².
I told you: It’s a unique place in the world!
For this reason, in a new world context affected by the coronavirus, it’s incredible that news media from the United States and Canada recommend visiting Costa Rica when the crisis is over.
Costa Rica is not only recognized for its biodiversity and natural beauties, it is also praised for its efficient public health system. This has been a key element in mitigating the negative effect of covid-19 successfully.
Although we still can’t claim victory, the way the government has managed to mitigate a massive covid-19 contact has caught the attention of scientists and doctors around the world.
That is why it is not surprising that even in the midst of the crisis, world media highlight the tourist value of the country.
Jennifer Merrick, from the Canadian digital medium ‘World Travel’, accurately describes the sensations and sounds that hide the tropical rainforest.
The American program ‘Good Morning América’, on ABC, told how a British couple and their two daughters suffered from the surprise cancellation of their vacation to Costa Rica due to the covid-19 crisis.

The two girls recreated in the basement of their house the cloud forest of Costa Rica to overcome disappointment. Toucans, butterflies, monkeys and even the imposing Arenal Volcano were some of the stars of the homemade show.
In April 2020, journalist Dayana Aleksandrova wrote a comprehensive report on the Osa Peninsula in Matador Network magazine. Aleksandrova describes Costa Rica as “the ultimate playground for those seeking adventure and relaxation”.
She does not say it in vain: she lived the experience of being close to imposing volcanoes, witnessing majestic waterfalls, getting to know the rainforest “flying” on zip lines and discovering paradisiacal beaches.
For her, the Osa Peninsula is a golden land in the Costa Rican Pacific. It’s considered one of the most biodiverse sites in the country that can be visited quietly and without the crowds.
Finally, April 22 was Earth Day and Condé Nast Traveler recognized Costa Rica as a country that works really hard to achieve sustainable tourism.
In the article, written by Ali Wunderman, he recognizes that ecology has become a point of pride for the Costa Rican industry.
That is why hotels are always seeking to obtain certifications of the World Sustainable Tourism Council. They must establish important sustainable initiatives.
We didn’t say it! The entire world is amazed at how Costa Rica has successfully addressed this health crisis. They are also waiting to know the natural beauties.
Remember: ¡We are waiting for you here!
