Why Costa Rica?
In 2003, Pacific Business News stated that Costa Rica was the best destination in the world for adventure tourism. Similarly, in 2003, Adventure Site Explorer and National Geographic declared Costa Rica to be one of the ten best destinations in the world for adventure tourism. The Costa Rica Tourist Board estimates that by the end of the year 2005, the approximate growth in the annual number of visitors arriving to the country will increase by 15% to 20%. This would mean the arrival of over one million six hundred thousand tourists who will generate an average of $1,500 each. This increase is also due in large part to an increase in the number of airline flights into Costa Rica.
Costa Rica is world renowned for its sport fishing, tropical rain forest, canopy tours, volcanoes, surfing, white water rafting and not to mention its great night life (casinos, restaurants, night clubs) Major hotel chains have built or are building hotels and beach resorts here, including such luminaries as HILTON, MARRIOTT, FOUR SEASONS, HOLIDAY INN, RADISSON, BARCELO MELIA, INTERCONTINENTAL AND BEST WESTERN just to name a few.
