Summary
Costa Rica prides itself on being one of the most peaceful and democratic countries in all of Latin America. Now tourism has become the nation's number-one revenue earner-and the country's ecology could be under threat. Looking at ecotourism in Costa Rica, this program helps beginning Spanish speakers learn how to describe and compare things. Viewers are introduced to a biologist and tour guide who wants to see Costa Rica balance economic demands with the need to preserve species and natural habitats, and a researcher with INBio, the Institute of Biodiversity, who is charged with cataloging plant and insect life
