With its rich biodiversity and immense eco-system, ecotourism in Costa Rica leads the ranks in this category of tourism. The country takes advantage of the growing demand for eco-tourists to visit these protected areas in exchange for profit.For years, growth in tourism in Central America was extremely slow due to civil wars in various regions; however, as peace developed in neighboring countries, tourism in Costa Rica has skyrocketed over the past two decades.Many of the first ecotourists were academics who came to the country to study biology. The publications generated by of these biologists, coupled with a more aggressive campaign by the Costa Rican Tourism Board (ICT), soon led to a growing group of “nature tourists.” By 1995, more than 800,000 foreigners came to Costa Rica, many of whom visited national parks and reserves. The tourism boom began in 1987, with a historical record of 2.34 million foreign visitors in 2012. In 2012 international tourist receipts reached US$2.4 billion.
