The Tourism in CR
Tourism in Costa Rica is very ecological
Years ago, the government found out , that there is a gap in the global market. If a country protects its enviroment, it could make a country very special. Therefore, the tourism is used to protect the nature. For that, there are countless examples in Costa Rica. One example is the Eco-hotels.
An Eco-hotel or an Eco-Lodge assumes responsibility for flora and fauna in order to protect the environment, and ensure that the guests have a holiday in harmony with nature.
Even though the concept might seems a bit stereotype, but it works in Costa Rica very well. As you can see, there are a lot of non-eco hotels which are loosing more and more the clients , because the majority of tourists understands how important this system is for Costa Rica. Anyone who travels to Costa Rica would like to enjoy the environment and therefore it is important to protect it.
In many hotels and lodges are programs like "plant a tree", "deliver an animal", or similar offers.
On our pages about accommodation in Costa Rica, we have summarized a selection of the best and most beautiful hotels and lodges in the country. The factor Eco plays a major role today, but there could and must be so much more projects to protect the beautiful nature of Costa Rica.

In October 2011, Costa Rica is named the best travel destination in the world, by an American tour operator called "Apple Vacations".
This award, that Costa Rica received at the first time, is based on surveys of customers. Particularly, the biodiversity of our country, and the variety of the offered destinations impressed the visitors.
