Costa Rica

Costa Rica is one of, if not the best-studied and most scientifically productive country in the world.

The size of the U.S. state of West Virginia, Costa Rica makes up just 0.03 percent of the earth’s land mass while being home to 6% of its total biodiversity.

With no active conflicts, a large variety of ecosystems (including two coastlines), unmatched biological richness in such a small area, easily reached from both Europe and North America, it makes sense that Costa Rica would be a global epicentre for ecological research and nature tourism. 

It is for these reasons that CR has one of the largest number of protected areas (30 percent of its total landmass) in the world.
