28 Costa Rica Locations Listed Among the World’s Most “Irreplaceable” Places 

28 Costa Rica Locations Listed Among the World’s Most “Irreplaceable” Places

December 04, 2013

A team of international scientists recently compiled a list of the world’s most “irreplaceable” natural environments. These 2,300 places were recognized for their “unique habitats” that support rare plant and animal life.

Not surprisingly, some beautiful places in Costa Rica featured prominently in this survey. All told, 28 locations — many of them national parks or other preserves — made the list. Among them are Los Quetzales and Guanacaste national parks, Cocos Island World Heritage Site and Golfo Dulce Forest Reserve. These areas are home to exquisite plants and animals, including , multitudes of frogs, parrots, orchids, tapirs, monkeys and other exotic creatures. Perhaps one of the most striking is the quetzal, a bird with beyond-belief plumage.

As Costa Rica residents and tour operators, this news doesn’t surprise us. We have long known that Costa Rica is recognized worldwide as an important country for biodiversity. The unique rainforest environment here attracts birds, plants and animals that are rare global treasures.

Costa Rica is unique because so much of our country is untouched by civilization and technology. Many visitors come to Costa Rica each year to explore these beautiful natural areas and witness sights they simply can’t find anywhere else. This makes Costa Rica one of the top-visited countries worldwide.
