Costa Rica, land of green and natural landscapes, lush and misty foliage and home to 5% of the world’s biodiversity, is no different to other countries when it comes to avoiding and attacking environmental issues that degrade the country’s natural life.

Costa Rica is known for manufacturing and exporting top quality products to multiple countries in the world, such as coffee, fruits, electronic devices and many more.
