Costa Rica Entertainment – Gaia Vince believes Costa Rica is the greenest and happiest country in the world, so she moved to a house in the jungle with her family for three months to find out why.
The result is Escape to Costa Rica, a new series on Channel 4 (Sundays, 7pm), which sees her wrestling crocodiles and dangling from extremely tall trees. She tells us why this tiny country in Central America should be on the bucket list of every eco-minded traveller.
Why Costa Rica?
It shows there is a different path you can take: you can develop your economy and increase the happiness of the people and conserve your natural environment. That’s the Holy Grail isn’t it? We all want to do that and yet we’re not.
