Tourism is a huge sector of the world’s service industry, and ecotourism specifically is growing rapidly. Many developing nations, such as Costa Rica, have the means to take advantage of this popularity due to the many cloud forests, volcanoes, and abounding nature that the country possesses.
Costa Rica is well-known in the ecotourism community for its environmentally-friendly tourism industry. Tourists world-wide plan their vacations to Costa Rica to take part in this unique kind of tourism. The goal of ecotourism is to preserve the natural resources of a country while also making a profit in the form of tourism.
The idea of high-priced hotel resorts lining the beaches has been surpassed in Costa Rica for the idea of a different type of vacation. Ecotourism offers its own type of exotic adventures by showing diverse nature and wildlife that can only be found far from the modernized world.
Statistics show that ecotourism had an annual growth rate of between 20-30% back in 2001. This is due in large part to the increasing number of environmentally-aware tourists, and at the same time, has encouraged poor nations to nurture their resources for this reason.
For tourists interested in this up-and-coming vacation idea, Costa Rica is the place to visit. The country is full of incredible biodiversity, ranging from pristine beaches, to lush rain forests, exotic wildlife and active volcanoes.
In addition, an important factor is choosing Costa Rica is its close proximity to the United States, which is obviously a friendlier choice for tourists over ecotourism trips to Asia or Africa.
