Costa Rica supports an enormous variety of flora and fauna, due in large part to its geographic position between the North and South American continents, its neotropical climate, and its wide variety of habitats. Costa Rica accounts for only 0.03 percent of the earth's surface, however it contains nearly 6 percent of the world's biodiversity.
Costa Rica has led the world in carbon neutrality.
For several years now, Costa Rica has run on entirely renewable energy for an average of about 300 days per year, and hoping to reach 100% in the near future.
Costa Rica is home to one of the five original blue zones regions, the Nicoya peninsula, with a high number of centenarians in excellent health. It's also one of the happiest places in Central America, Costa Ricans report a high level of life satisfaction and the country has the highest literacy rate in Latin America.
