Costa Rica is a Mecca for expat retirees, sportsmen, and adventurers. With tropical weather, incredible beaches, lush mountains, low cost of living, and a model public health care system, Costa Rica has a brand identity all its own. Thousands of people have left the snow and high prices behind to live there. Costa Rica has some of the most breathtaking Pacific beaches on the planet, with miles of surf breaks that make its Pacific coast legendary. But Costa Rica is also a world leader in ecological, sustainable development. Much of Costa Rica's lush, tropical forests are protected natural preserves, and Costa Rica is one of the few countries in the world that set a deadline for being carbon-neutral and is actually nearing that goal. This combination of natural beauty, sustainable ecological policies, and killer surf has ensured Costa Rica's niche as one of the most popular tourism and vacation spots on earth, with 1.5 million people visiting this little Central American country each year.
