Why Costa Rica
This small Central American country was ranked highest in 2009, 2012, and 2016, by the Happy Planet Index. Costa Rica is also home to one of just five Blue Zones in the world and the many species of Costa Rica represent about 5% of the world's biodiversity. Costa Rica is also known for its sloths, turtles, monkeys, lizards and exotic birds. It has no army, they invest in education instead. They protect 25% of the country as national parks, making sure their nature reserves will be there for many more centuries to come.
We love Costa Rica because it is one of the most ecologically conscious countries in the world, its unmatched natural beauty and the most diverse wildlife on the planet. All animal lovers should take a look at Territorio de Zaguates, a temporal shelter for hundreds of doggies seeking a second opportunity, and also a permanent home for others that probably will never find a family.
We can list many more reasons as to why we chose Costa Rica for our transformational program, but you just have to exprience the warm welcome from this beautiful country yourself.
