How is Costa Rica a Unique Travel Destination?

According to National Geographic, the country is ‘Richest Space, Biologically Speaking’. But besides its intriguing biodiversity, flora and fauna, natural elements, wildlife, beauty, adventure prospects etc. the country is unique because of its eco-friendly and sustainable practices employed to keep up the tourism industry of the country.

  • The Costa Rican Hotels are essentially involved in ‘making their own electricity’.
  • The hotels have devised cost-effective methods which automatically cut-off the supply of electricity to the room when the guest is not in it.
  • Solar energy operated water heaters and cooking appliances save almost half the energy that was consumed in the past.
  • All the hotel wastes are segregated as biodegradable or non-biodegradable and recycled
  • Biodegradable wastes are utilized to generate biogas, another renewable source of energy which is utilized for cooking and supply of electricity
  • Wind energy and Geothermal energy are other renewable sources of energy which are utilized for generation of electricity

It is quite evident that the country is committed towards protection of environment and sustainability. This commitment combined with the abundance of resources in the country is why Costa Rica is aiming for Carbon Neutrality by 2021!
