Costa Rica


Volcanoes, the Caribbean and Pacific oceans, cloud forests, hot springs, jungles and more – Costa Rica has it all, and ecotourism in Costa Rica is nothing new. Explore the best this country has to offer through our eco-travel options and tips for travelling in Costa Rica.

Costa Rica is perhaps better known for ecotourism than any other country in the world and has been pioneering this sustainable way of travel for years. Tourism employs more people in Costa Rica than any other industry and has been key to the development and progression of the Costa Rican economy.

Costa Rica is extremely safe, friendly, and navigable, even for non-Spanish speakers. The best way to explore this country is by renting a car and taking to the open roads. For road tripping tips and apps, click here.

Eco-travel can be found almost anywhere in Costa Rica. Places like Isla de Caño Marine Reserve, Corcovado National Park (one of the most biodiverse areas in all the Americas), Arenal Volcano, the Cloud Forests of Monteverde, Manuel Antonio, and homestay community empowerment projects like Heart of Gold are a few eco-areas that are well recognized in posts to come.
