BIODIVERSITY

An incredible array of microclimates and diverse habitats has blessed Costa Rica with an incredible gift. Despite having just 0.1% of the world’s landmass, the country has nearly 6% of its biodiversity. This is by far the highest species density in the world – an incredible natural endowment for such a small nation. Costa Rica has recognized the richness of this treasure and committed to conserving it with policies designed to protect and a tourism economy built on highlighting and preserving nature instead of destroying it.
