We are Pure Life!
“Pure Life”; a phrase that is commonly heard in our country and is often used as a greeting instead of a “hello” or a “goodbye”. That is why this very peculiar phrase is used by everyone in the country. It is something like an incentive to fan the energies and start a new day with great optimism.
As it is customary every year, the United Nations (UN) publishes a report entitled “World Report of Happiness”. The same text is responsible for determining the level of happiness of the nearby population around 156 countries.
Among the elements that stand out is the development of each country, linked to social support, and life expectancy. Also, plans set by the different governments are other relevant aspects.
In this occasion, Finland is designated as the 1st place on the face of Earth where its inhabitants are 100% happy. Or at least, there are great reasons why its population should be happy, because of the very favorable conditions this country has.
The list also includes nations such as Denmark, Sweden, and Iceland. The most curious thing about this text is that, in the Nordic countries, our Costa Rica ranked 1st as the happiest destination to live in Latin America.

It is an ecotourism lover
This way of doing good tourism is the most ideal because it consists of conserving the environment and the cultural heritage of a certain country or nation.
That is why, for our country, the Monteverde Cloud Forest and the Manuel Antonio National Park are of great importance since both are considered models to be followed because they offer an ideal habitat for the diverse species of flora and wildlife.
We are pure life, we are pure health
In the world ranking of health, Erick Ulate Acosta, who is assistant director of Exports of the Promotora of Foreign Trade of Costa Rica (PROCOMER), has expressed that our land is currently among the 50 healthiest nations on the planet.

Global Peace Index

Our country stands out among the others and has been consolidated for some years, as the most peaceful country in Central America as recently announced by the Global Peace Index 2019 (GPI).
If you have already finished your working cycle, you should take Costa Rica as your great option. And this is because we are the 4th best destination in the world for retirees; at least, this is what the International Living ranking says.
These associations confirm that these recognitions are due to the fact that we stand out as a calm and ideal country to be able to take a breather out of the routine and spend their retirement years in excellent conditions away from stress or other damages.
Export talent with our stamp
The Costa Rica Foreign Trade Promoter (PROCOMER) has revealed details that reveal that Costa Rica has recently become the largest exporter of pineapple in the world and the 3rd to export bananas, respectively. It is also worthy to highlight that coffee is the main product that activates our country’s economy. Due to this particular aspect, Costa Rican coffee is also known as the “Golden Grain”.
We are likely to use renewable energy
About 99% of the energy that is used within the country comes from 100% renewable sources. Likewise, 80% of this hydroelectric power stands out as the largest in Latin America.
