Imagine a country with a quarter of its territory of national parks, a place where you can walk through the rain forest in the morning and surf in the afternoon.
International Living Magazine has seen a 152.98% increase in traffic to its “Moving to Costa Rica” page since May 2020. This is what the magazine says:

Of course, scene is not lacking in the Costa Rican landscape: you have huge stretches of coastline, rainforests rich in everything from spider monkeys and sloths to scarlet macaws and quetzals, beautiful lakes and volcanic valleys.
The Ticos (the nickname for Costa Ricans) have established one of the most stable democracies in the world. The country dissolved its permanent army in 1949 and the reallocated funds are spent on education, health care and pensions instead of the military.
