COSTA RICA TOPS IN LIFE SATISFACTION   July 5, 2009 CNN
"Independent British group claims Costa Ricans have world's highest life satisfaction. Central American nation also praised for its environmental efforts" 
(CNN) -- Forget Disneyland! Costa Rica is the happiest place in the world, according to an independent research group in Britain with the goal of building a new economy, "centered on people and the environment." In a report released Saturday, the group ranks nations using the "Happy Planet Index," which seeks countries with the most content people. In addition to happiness, the index by the New Economics Foundation considers the ecological footprint and life expectancy of countries. 
"Costa Ricans report the highest life satisfaction in the world and have the second-highest average life expectancy of the new world (second to Canada)," the organization said in a statement. They "also have an ecological footprint that means that the country only narrowly fails to achieve the goal of ... consuming its fair share of the Earth's natural resources." 
 This year's survey, which looked at 143 countries, featured Latin American nations in nine of the Top 10 spots.The runner-up was the Dominican Republic, followed by Jamaica, Guatemala and Vietnam.  The report, which was first conducted in 2006, covers 99 percent of the world population.
 

COSTA RICA IS THE FIFTH CLEANEST COUNTRY  May 25,2009 
Costa Rica is the fifth cleanest country in the world, according to a recent publication in the prestigious Forbes magazine, after an environmental study on 149 countries regarding air and water quality and natural vitality, among others, done by scientists from Colombia and Yale Universities.
The Environmental Performance Indicator (EPI) study corresponds to the year 2008.   According to Forbes, the Costa Rican economy is anchored by a robust ecotourism industry that has benefitted from governmental and private efforts made to protect the country's biodiversity.  In addition, the publication highlighted that this index will continue to improve if it complies with its initiative to become the first carbon neutral, or C-neutral, nation by 2021.
The Forbes publication also stated that, contrary to what has happened in other Latin American countries, Costa Rica has been efficient in avoiding an increase in tree felling, and has also achieved a score of 97 or higher in forest, air pollution, and climate change categories.  This is due to efforts to re-forest part of the land by means of planting a specific tree species that will be used for commercial purposes.
 

COSTA RICA IS THE SAFEST COUNTRY IN LATIN AMERICA        May 25, 2009 
Costa Rica is the safest nation in Latin America for businesses and multinational companies, according to the latest Latin Security Index done by FTI Consulting Ibero America in the weekly publication Latin Business Chronicle.
The index includes a danger level rating for every country, calculated on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being a completely safe country and 5 the worst. Only three countries in Latin America received a 2: Costa Rica, Chile, and Uruguay. And, among those, Costa Rica rated as the safest, said Frank Holder, Senior General Manager of FTI forensic and litigation consulting, as well as a prominent Latin American security expert. 
  

COSTA RICA CHOSEN AS "ECO-TOURIST SPOT"             May 18, 2009 
The International Ecotourism Society (TIES), the oldest ecotourism organization in the world, selected Costa Rica as the "ecotourist destination" for the month of February, thanks to its program dedicated to reducing carbon emissions in the atmosphere. Every month, TIES selects a destination site to display to the world, and in February it chose Costa Rica for its "Clean Travel" program, a tool that allows tourists to donate money to compensate for gas emissions generated by flights to the Central American country."Clean Travel" is a Costa Rican government initiative that encourages visitors to contribute to the conservation of forests, water systems, and biodiversity by means of environmental service donations.
