Costa Rica is considered one of the leaders in Latin America when it comes to promoting conservation and eco-tourism.
During a recent visit, I learned that the roots for this commitment can be traced back in large part to a North American religious group that helped settle the beautiful community of Monteverde in the 1950s. They set aside land in the cloud forest to protect it.
Be the first to tell me the name of this religious group, and I'll send you a free copy of Pauline Frommer's new Costa Rica guidebook.
