I was really excited to see Costa Rica recognized by Forbes ranking in the top 5 cleanest countries in the World. It is one of the many reasons I call Costa Rica my second home. Switzerland ranks #1, Costa Rica is #5, and the U.S. a distant #39.

Costa Rica Ranks #5 Cleanest Country in the World

Costa Rica Ranks #5 Cleanest Country in the World

Costa Rica

Score: 90.5
No. 5 Overall; No. 1 in the Americas

Costa Rica’s economy relies on a robust ecotourism industry, and the care it takes for its environment shows. The Central American country ranks fifth in the global Environmental Index, a rating that should only improve as it strives to become carbon-neutral by 2021. Costa Rica has avoided the deforestation that ravages some Latin American countries: the country earns a score of 97 or better in the categories of forestry, air pollution and climate change. But the country isn’t as kind to its offshore environment, scoring abysmally in the marine protected areas category.
