Tourism in Costa Rica on the Climb

By in Inspiration with 0 Comments

There’s hardly a conversation, in Europe or North America, about vacation or holiday doesn’t include at least a mention of Costa Rica. If you haven’t heard about this tiny tropical paradise, you will shortly. With a steady flow of US, Canadian, and European visitors, and a hotbed hideout for celebrities worldwide, Costa Rica wears the crown as the most visited nation in Central America. Capturing roughly 26% of all visitors to the region. Costa Rica’s annual visitor count has climbed an average of 10% each year over the last 10, most recently reaching just under 2.9 million visitors in 2016 alone. That’s a lot of people, especially, when taken into account that they earned the country and its residents nearly $3 billion USD in revenue that year alone! It seems this escape destination may hold as many diverse opportunities for investment and success as it does abundant wildlife and beautiful vistas.

It’s not just about the numbers though. The type of tourists Costa Rica attracts is exactly the kind of people you want to visit and get to know. The eco-tourism resulting from the nation’s longstanding views on conservation and wildlife preservation does well to attract those with a heart for adventure and cultivation of self in harmony with the planet. Top yoga retreats, fantastic eco-reserves geared towards family fun, and, of course, some of the best surf spots in the world all rolled into one means Costa Rica’s tourism momentum won’t be slowing down any time soon. In fact, RE/MAX Pura Vida has you covered with two amazing listings that cater towards that exact demographic. Perhaps you’re looking for a higher-end crowd, hoping to attract a celebrity or two who might not already hide away here, or have the capital for significant turn-key investment.
