The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Hollywood has developed a love affair with Costa Rica, some for vacationing, other for real estate, but film producers also love Costa Rica’s unique environments: Labeled, “The Happiest Nation on Earth” as well as “the most biologically intense place on Earth,” by National Geographic, Costa Rica has become a haven for the rich and famous from Hollywood.
Costa Rica has become an increasingly popular location for Hollywood movie stars to invest. Many have been quoted as saying they prefer the laid back lifestyle Costa Rica offers, a ‘pura vida’ opportunity for a peaceful and pure life.
Life in Costa Rica is like nothing you’ve ever experienced before, from watching the amazing scarlet macaws to the haunting sound of the Howler monkey. This small Latin American country boasts almost 5% of the world’s biodiversity including many new species discoveries virtually every year.
