#94 - Pur Vida!
Costa Rica is known for many different things; coffee plantations, bananas, tropical rainforests, amazing biodiversity, volcanoes, black sand, pineapples..and a ton more...BUT
Costa Rica is one of the MOST impressive country in the world when it comes to environmental action. According to the Environmental Performance Index which evaluates a country's environmental policies & actions, Costa Rica sits 1st in the Americas (North and South) as the top Green nation. They're aiming to be the first country in the world to be carbon neutral by 2021.
The Costa Ricans seem to take their motto, "Pur Vida" or "Pure Life", very seriously. The rest of us could learn a thing or two from them.
Thanks Annette; you're a lucky gal to be living in such a beautiful place...
