Rich beaches, immense biodiversity, 28 national parks and protected areas, and friendly local communities suitably coalesce in the aptly named Central American country of Costa Rica as the visiting grounds for independent travelers.
Recognizing the scope of these natural strengths, The Instituto Costaricense de Tourismo (ICT) instrumentally set Costa Rica at the foundation for responsible travel globally. With vast natural resources healthfully laden in a country comparative to the state of West Virginia, circuited routes to visit several areas on one visit were popularized for explorers by travel agencies promoting ICT’s environmentally conscious goals.
As eventual co-creators of ecotourism in Costa Rica, travel agencies like Horizontes, offered their ecofriendly and bold travelers visits to multiple biologically significant destinations for a few days each during a 7-10 day. The tourism industry in places like the caribbean coast, Puerto Viejo, Osa Peninsula and Santa Teresa blossomed as a result.
Now the traditional form of tourism in the country, ecotourism has evolved to provide the smart traveler a base method of travel to explore multiple areas of the country for a many number of conscious, healthy, active, sustainable, recreational tourism and adventure sports tourism reasons.
In conjunction with ICT, Essential Costa Rica trumpets the preservation of the National Park systems and empowers environmental awareness through natural travel experiences and destinations in country. Travelers traditionally book a few nights each on a multi town tour through Costa Rica and continue to do so both with travel agencies like Swiss Travel and Way-to-Go Tours or independently with the advent of alternative accommodations sector. A certificate for sustainable tourism furthers interest in this expanding form of travel.
