"Green" Travel in Costa Rica
You may call it ecotourism, responsible tourism, or green travel, but no matter what you call it - it's important.
Traveling green means you care about the ability of host-destinations to sustain themselves in the long run. As tourists, we must accept and consider the negative impact we have on destinations, and become educated in how we mitigate that impact to be a force for good wherever we go.
Costa Rica is a pioneer in the global sustainable tourism scene and is touted as one of the world's leading "green" destinations.
As one of the most bio-diverse places in the world, this small country leverages tourist dollars to protect its plethora of interesting species through the establishment of protected zones, national parks, conservation initiates, and research efforts.
