About Costa rica

Costa Rica, officially known as the Republic of Costa Rica, is a Central American nation well known for its dedication to environmental conservation, as evidenced by its staggering biodiversity. Home to a wide variety of flora and fauna, Costa Rica contains nearly 6% of the world's biodiversity, making it a paradise for nature and wildlife lovers. From verdant rainforests, pristine beaches, towering volcanoes, to rushing rivers, the country's natural beauty is remarkable. It is perhaps best known for its ecotourism, attracting visitors to national parks, reserves, and eco-lodges. Despite its small size, Costa Rica has a variety of microclimates, ranging from the tropical heat of the coastal regions to the cooler highlands. Its economy relies heavily on tourism, agriculture, and electronic exports. Costa Rican society is characterized by its peaceful culture—no standing army since 1949—and high education levels. Its capital and largest city, San José, offers a taste of Costa Rican art, culture, and cuisine. Spanish is the official language of Costa Rica, and the country is predominantly Roman Catholic. Renowned for its approach to sustainability and Pura Vida ('Pure Life') lifestyle, Costa Rica continually ranks high in the Human Development Index and is aiming to become carbon-neutral by 2050.
