Welcome to Costa Rica!

Sustainable Tourism in Costa Rica: A Call to Action for Tourists


As a tourist, you have the opportunity to contribute to the preservation of our beautiful country and its natural richness. Costa Rica is one of the most sustainable countries in the world and we are committed to conserving our natural heritage for future generations. However, we need your help to achieve this.

That’s why we invite you to adopt sustainable practices during your stay in Costa Rica. Small actions, such as reducing water and energy consumption, recycling, and reusing, can have a big impact on preserving the environment. By choosing sustainable tourism options, such as tours that promote environmental conservation, you can help protect our unique biodiversity.


Adopting Sustainable Practices during your Stay in Costa Rica

We recommend that you always carry a reusable water bottle with you to avoid using disposable plastic bottles. You can also opt to take short showers to save water, unplug electronics when not in use to save energy, and use public transportation or walk instead of renting a car.

Additionally, we ask that you respect the natural ecosystems you encounter during your trip. Do not litter on beaches or in rivers, and do not feed wild animals, as this can disrupt their natural behavior. By following these sustainable practices, you can enjoy Costa Rica in a more conscious and responsible way.

Remember that as a tourist, you are part of our sustainable community. Together, we can ensure that we protect the biodiversity and natural beauty of Costa Rica for future generations.

Thank you for your commitment to sustainability!

From all Costa Rica residents, flora, and fauna.
