A brief look into one of the most beautiful countries in the world. But before you go here are some facts you should know.

Biodiversity and Land: Costa Rica has about half a million different species. (WOW!) And yes 300,000 of those are insects. That makes for a little less than 5% of the world’s biodiversity! Not bad for a small country of 19,730 sq. miles. 26% of the entire country is declared as conservation area. This makes for some vast and awesome parks. They are a very eco-friendly country which is one of the reasons it’s such a pleasure to visit. The beaches offer such things as leatherback turtles reserves, sport fishing, diving, and my favorite… doing absolutely nothing……
Business and Trade: Tourism, Tech, Coffee, Pineapple, banana, teak wood etc. These are all big business in the little country. Costa Rican’s are actually a well educated people and great for high tech sectors. Apparently IBM thinks the same with its recent commitment to invest an additional 300 million dollars in Costa Rica operations. (That’s goes a lot further down there too.) There are also plans to build a new $900 million dollar transfer terminal near the port of Moin. This combined with some free trade agreements with various counties as of late; make Costa Rica’s future in business look interesting.
Local Foods: Fresh Fruits, fish, coffee, eggs, chicken, pork, and beef are all readily available. This is a nice byproduct of Costa Rica’s Rich Agricultural industry. I personally love the fresh coffee every morning with the unbeatable views. Whether it’s a cloud forest or beach view, its always great.
Travel: Fishing, Surfing, Sunbathing, Canopy tours, Whitewater rafting, Eco-Tours, diving, mountain biking, hiking, coffee tours, golfing, horseback riding, ATV tours, and many other activities are everywhere to be found. With the locals speaking English very well in general, the country seems to cater to us adventures.
And one more thing you need to know: COSTA RICA = RICH COAST. A name she well deserves.
