Costa Rica - 3rd Greenest Country in The WorldThe 3rd greenest country in the world is Costa Rica, did you know that? If you fancy lush evergreen forests, constant sunshine and fresh air, then you may find the sandy beaches of Costa Rica just the right place for you.

The secret behind the statistics is the embracement of the so-called “sustainable well – being”. To summarize, this is the ability of a country to be environmentally friendly and to perform a socially engaging behavior.

Costa Rica, surrounded by the Pacific and Caribbean Ocean enchants with the variety of wildlife and exotic nature. Costa Rica literally means “rich coast”. The name is not exaggerated at all. From vast tropical rainforests to gorgeous golden sands, the country can offer everything to the tourist.

Sustainable development

Costa Rica is a clear example of the connection between people’s well – being and the eco – friendly lifestyle. The highlight of its sustainable development was the government’s decision to transform the republic into the first carbon-free country by 2021. One of the major advantages of the 3rd greenest country in the world is its richness of water resources that enables the construction of hydroelectric plants. The country depends entirely on renewable energy to satisfy its energy needs.
