Costa Rica is world famous for its incredibly beautiful landscapes and astonishing biodiversity and one of the best way to responsibly enjoy the country is with an eco-vacation.
The government of Costa Rica has firmly committed to protecting and preserving the environment so that it can be enjoyed by generations to come. As part of this process, the Costa Rican government is actively encouraging travelers to partake in sustainable activities.
Options for eco-tourism in Costa Rica include enjoying organic, locally produced foods and drinks, visiting national parks and protected areas, and exploring the diverse landscape that includes volcanoes, cloud forests, jungles, waterfalls, beaches, and wetlands.
Eco-tourism also includes learning more about the wildlife in Costa Rica, including bird watching (over 900 species), monkeys, ocelots, coatis, sloths, butterflies, and brightly colored tree frogs. There are also many rescue centers and wildlife sanctuaries where visitors can both learn more about the flora and fauna of Costa Rica as well as contributing to the long-term protection of the environment. And few experiences can compare to the wonder and majesty of watching enormous sea turtles crawl onto the beaches to lay their eggs. These animals are protected, so you can’t touch them, but it is possible to get very close in order to watch mother turtles cover their nests and then gracefully slip back into the sea.
