  ECOTOURISM IN COSTA RICA  2 ADD A FOOTER • Costa Rica is a rugged, rainforested Central American country with coastlines on the Caribbean and Pacic.  Though its capital, San  Jose, is home to cultural institutions like the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum, Costa Rica is known for its beaches, volcanoes, and biodiversity. • Roughly a quarter of its area is made up of protected jungle, teeming with wildlife including spider monkeys and quetzal birds.  ECOTOURISM IN COSTA RICA • Ecotourism in Costa Rica  is one of the key activities of the tourism industry in the country. By the early 1990s, Costa Rica became known as the poster child  of ecotourism. The country is among many developing nations that look to ecotourism as a way of cashing in on the growing demand for this popular trend of travel. • Ecotourism draws many tourists to visit the extensive national parks and protected areas around the country. Costa Rica was a pioneer in this type of tourism, and the country is recognized as one of the few with true ecotourism. While Costa Rica has gained immense popularity for its development of a successful, yet environmentally friendly, ecotourism industry, environmentalists and economists alike debate whether an economy centered on tourism produces more good than harm ADD A FOOTER 3  4 ADD A FOOTER COSTA RICA ECOTOURISM TOURIST SPOT: • Cocos Island  (Spanish: Isla del Coco ) is an island in the Pacic Ocean. Costa Rica’s Cocos Island National Park   is located 340 miles (550 km) o the Pacic coast of Costa Rica. This remote location’s only tourist activity is by liveaboard boats, primarily Cocos scuba diving liveaboards. Entry to the island is by permit only and there is no accommodations on the island except for the quarters of the dozen park rangers.  5 ADD A FOOTER PARQUE NATIONAL MANUEL ANTONIO • Manuel Antonio National Park, on Costa Rica’s central Pacic coast, encompasses rugged rainforest, white-sand beaches and coral reefs. It’s renowned for its vast diversity of tropical plants and wildlife, from three-toed sloths and endangered white-faced capuchin monkeys to hundreds of bird species. The park’s roughly 680 hectares are crossed with hiking trails, which meander from the coast up into the mountains.
