Costa Rica is consolidated as the most “Green Destination” in the world.

According to the article written by Leticia Vindas for the local news paper elfinancierocr.com (http://www.elfinancierocr.com/ef_archivo/2010/marzo/07/economia2287787.html) as a result of a survey made by CMI Green , the consumers interviewed concluded that Costa Rica is the destination that has done the best efforts to protect the environment.

The consumers interviewed (most of them from the United States), based their decision in the “green Experience” lived during their visit to Costa Rica, and by experiencing firsthand the sustainable practices that are use to advertize Costa Rica worldwide.

The CMI Green Traveler 2010 defines Costa Rica as the only destination that creates a Market conscience, also has been recognized by protecting and maintaining the National Patrimony for the past 50 years; the Costa Rican government has also made an investment of $1,92 million to the environmentally conscious tourism industry.

This recognition is tremendously important for Costa Rica, because it shows that we are working accordingly to our environmental policies says Allan Flores, Costa Rica’s Minister of Tourism.
