How sustainable is ecotourism in Costa Rica?
This article examines the role of park-based tourism, through a case study of Tortuguero National Park, Costa Rica. It is concluded that Tortuguero has the prerequisites for sustainable conservation-based tourism: an interesting and relatively easily viewed wildlife component, the potential for relatively easy access, and a distinctive local culture.
