Costa Rica (literally "Rich Coast"), officially the Republic of Costa Rica, is a sovereign state in Central America, bordered by Nicaragua to the north, the Caribbean Sea to the northeast, Panama to the southeast, the Pacific Ocean to the southwest, and Ecuador to the south of Cocos Island. It has a population of around 5 million in a land area of 51,060 square kilometers (19,714 square miles). An estimated 333,980 people live in the capital and largest city, San Jose with around 2 million people in the surrounding metropolitan area.
Costa Rica is a unitary, presidential constitutional republic. It is known for its long-standing and stable democracy, and for its highly educated workforce, most of whom speak English. The country spends roughly 6.9% of its budget (2016) on education, compared to a global average of 4.4%. Its economy, once heavily dependent on agriculture, has diversified to include sectors such as finance, corporate services for foreign companies, pharmaceuticals, and ecotourism. Many foreign manufacturing and services companies operate in Costa Rica's Free Trade Zones (FTZ) where they benefit from investment and tax incentives.
Costa Rica was sparsely inhabited by indigenous peoples before coming under Spanish rule in the 16th century. It remained a peripheral colony of the empire until independence as part of the First Mexican Empire, followed by membership in the United Provinces of Central America, from which it formally declared independence in 1847. Since then, Costa Rica has remained among the most stable, prosperous, and progressive nations in Latin America. Following the brief Costa Rican Civil War, it permanently abolished its army in 1949, becoming one of only a few sovereign nations without a standing army.
The country has consistently performed favorably in the Human Development Index (HDI), placing 63rd in the world as of 2017, among the highest of any Latin American nation. It has also been cited by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) as having attained much higher human development than other countries at the same income levels, with a better record on human development and inequality than the median of the region.
Costa Rica also has progressive environmental policies. It is the only country to meet all five UNDP criteria established to measure environmental sustainability. It was ranked 42nd in the world, and third in the Americas, in the 2016 Environmental Performance Index and was twice ranked the best performing country in the New Economics Foundation's (NEF) Happy Planet Index, which measures environmental sustainability, and was identified by the NEF as the greenest country in the world in 2009. Costa Rica plans to become a carbon-neutral country by 2021. By 2016, 98.1% of its electricity was generated from green sources, particularly hydro, solar, geothermal and biomass.
The self-sustaining domain is spread out over 5 hectares (12 acres) in a green valley surrounded by primary rain forest. On one side you have an amazing view over the mountains, deep into the heart of the Costa Rican inland. On the other side you see the Pacific Ocean.
On the rim of the mountain proudly stands the main building a living and breathing biotecture building in organic shapes. It is positioned so that a fresh breeze provides a natural air conditioning all day long. Viewing decks on all sides of the house offer loads of space to breath in the mystic views. An infinite pool makes it picture perfect.
Scattered over the domain are 4 private spacious cabinas. Every cabina has it’s own terrace, comfortable bathroom and offers loads of privacy. However comfortable and luxurious your cabina is, sleeping next to the rainforest always has a touch of adventure to it.
Above the main building there is a two-bedroom suite with two bathrooms and a private terrace.
