Through the Eyes of an Eco-Tourist: Costa Rica and Belize
Presented by Frances Greenberg, HRAS Board Member
Costa Rica may well be considered the originator of ecotourism; Belize is a fast follower.

Both these small countries are geological youngsters, emerging from the ocean a mere 7 million years ago, forming a land bridge that allowed species of North and South America to meet and mingle. The result is an extraordinary variety of fauna, packed into a small land mass. In New York, we have one hummingbird species; Costa Rica has 37. 

The human history is equally fascinating. Belize was a center of the mysteriously vanished Mayan civilization. Their first European settlers were English pirates living off the plunder of Spanish galleons. Centuries later, their descendants gave Britain reason to claim Belize as a colony. 

In Costa Rica, conquistadors, disappointed by the lack of wealth in the form of precious metals, moved on, leaving behind a colony of farmers. Their descendants would create Central America’s most peaceful and stable democracy. Both countries share a commitment to preserving nature. The ecotourist is amply rewarded by travel in these unique places.
