The conservation efforts in Costa Rica put the country on the list of 100 destinations to explore in its latest “World’s Greatest Places 2021” index for the New York-based Time Magazine.

“Thanks to Costa Rica’s conservation efforts, forests now cover 53% of the country’s lands, a dramatic reversal after decades of severe deforestation and 98% of its energy comes from renewable sources, a strong step toward its goal of becoming one of the world’s first decarbonized nations by 2050,” the magazine reads.

In the review, they highlight some of the newer hotels that align with the country’s commitment to sustainability, such as Nayara Tented Camp, which has invested in reforestation efforts while offering cliff-top glamping with unmatched views of the Arenal volcano.

The list is compiled by solicited nominations from its international network of correspondents and contributors, the magazine said. “In many ways, our third annual list of the World’s Greatest Places is a tribute to the people and businesses at the forefront of those industries who, amid extraordinary circumstances, found ways to adapt, build and innovate,” they said.

In May, Costa Rica was recognized among the top destinations to live and work abroad in 2021 by the business magazines, Forbes and Bloomberg.
