Costa Rica’s plans to be carbon neutral as a nation by 2021 will ensure that that they will be hard to shift from this number one spot.
Meanwhile, the Economist Intelligence Unit ranked Costa Rica as the 7th most politically and socially stable county in the world in March of 2009. A good safe place for foreign investment? IDF magazine (Financial Times Publishing Group) agrees and ranks Costa Rica as the second most attractive country in Latin America and the Caribbean for Foreign Investment (Costa Rica was just pipped at the post by Puerto Rica)
The Latin Business Chronicle ranks Costa Rica as the second most globalised nation in Latin America on the basis of six criteria - imports, exports, tourism receipts, foreign direct investment and remittances.
So Costa Rica is good for the environment and good for business.
An attractive place to retire to?
1% of the population is already North American and Canadian retirees and expatriates and retiring to Costa Rica is a straightforward process.
It is estimated that 100 million baby boomers will retire over the next two decades and some projections estimate that 10% of them will seek to live outside of North America.
With its low cost of living, excellent health care and safe beautiful environment Costa Rica looks likely to attract many of these retirees.
