Depending on what rankings you go by, the happiest nation on Earth is usually either Denmark or Costa Rica, and in the latest Happy Planet Index, Costa Rica takes top place.
Previously, we have looked at what makes Denmark so happy, so here we are going to have a look at the culture that makes Costa Rica so full of life.
1The Blue Zone
A blue zone is a place where people live longer and remain healthier and happier than anywhere else in the world. There isn’t necessarily a defining factor to this (like something in the water) but rather a collection of things that make this possible and the Nicoya Peninsula n the Pacific coast of Costa Rica is one of these such places.
Researching what goes into creating one of these blue zones, we look at the factors in Costa Rica.
