Costa Rica Eco Travel

As the world leader in natural tourism, Costa Rica remains the center of the world’s ecotourism, with 5% of the world’s biodiversity accounting for only 035 per cent of the world’s land. Since 1993, tourism has been a major external source of income for Costa Rica, surpassing bananas and coffee. The ICT (Costa Rica Institute of Tourism) recognizes that tourism in Costa Rica is primarily ecotourism. It is easy to understand why Costa Rica’s 26 national parks, 58 wildlife sanctuaries, 32 protected areas, 15 wetlands or mangroves, 11 forest reserves, 8 biosphere reserves and 12 other protected areas. All kinds of animals and plants are incredible. Martha Honey from CESD (Ecotourism and Sustainable Development Center) cited:

“The West Virginia’s large and small birds (850 species) are more species than the United States and Canada, with more butterflies than in Africa, more than 6,000 Costa Rica as former natural resources minister, bio-superpower ÁlvaroUmana, and flowering plants (including 1,500). Species) orchid species and more than 35,000 species of insects.”. (Honey 2003)

All these natural wonders are safe havens for ecotourists in the most stable countries, both in Central America’s society and politics, and throughout Latin America. It is commendable that Costa Rica (Costa Rica Ecotourism) has the highest proportion of protected land in the world (Fenell and Eagles, 1990). In addition, Costa Rica retains these lands and natural habitats, making visitors more accessible than any other country in the region (Budowski, 1993). The small size of this country is also an important factor; travelers who have the opportunity to visit more destinations each time.

The International Ecotourism Association (TIES) defines ecotourism as follows:

“Responsible natural area travel, protecting the environment and improving the well-being of local residents.”

The history of ecotourism (Costa Rica Ecotourism) is very interesting. The term “ecotourism” was coined in 1983 by Héctor Ceballos-Lascurain, one of Mexico’s most important architects, and is a recognized expert in ecotourism and ecology. Ceballos-Lascurain is the Executive Director of the International Ecotourism Advisory Program (ICEP) and a special ecotourism consultant for the World Conservation Union (IUCN). The following definition comes from Ceballos-Lascurain, an article from to meet with ecotourism architects.

The definition of 1983: “Tourism is a type of tourism that involves going to relatively quiet natural areas to learn, appreciate and appreciate the specific purpose of the landscape and its wildlife, as well as culture (past and present): this is in these areas. “He hopes that the result will be that people will have more knowledge, more understanding of nature, and thus more involvement in protection issues. The same wish has been fulfilled.
