Sustainability and nature conservation
Sustainability and nature conservation is close to the country of Costa Rica’s heart. Costa Rica, in 2015, was recognized at the Paris climate talks for running on 100 percent renewable energy for 255 days, a record stretch. Costa Rica has proven that sustainability and nature conservation goes hand in hand with economic growth through the dedication of ecotourism. Costa Rica has dedicated 26% of the country’s land to national parks, wildlife reserves and protected lands. Manuel Antonio National Park as well as Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve is examples of sustainable development. These parks are home to many of the animals and plant life found in the country.
In order to preserve the sustainability and nature conservation, Costa Rica has dedicated itself to protect the landscape from agriculture practices which threaten its wildlife. When visiting Costa Rica, your senses will come alive. You will experience the sights and sounds of some of the most beautiful waterfalls, birds, animals and volcanos. While visiting these national parks and reserves, you will also be contributing to the economic growth as well as protecting these gorgeous resources. The term Pura Vida, which means pure life, is not just a way of life, but a state of life.
