Obesity treatment in Costa Rica

Costa Rica draws well over a million visitors every year. The country has a wide and varied geography. You can cruise through  a cloud forest one day, climb a volcano the next, and finally relax on a beautiful beach.

Tourism in Costa Rica is one of the fastest growing economic sectors of the country. Since 2004, tourism earns more foreign exchange than bananas and coffee combined. The tourism boom began in 1987, with the number of visitors up from 329,000 in 1988, through 1 million in 1999, to 1.9 million foreign visitors in 2007, allowing the country to earn $1.9-billion in that year. In 2005, tourism contributed with 8,1% of the country's GDP and represented 13,3% of direct and indirect employment.

Costa Rica is fast becoming a hot location for patients in search of high-quality cut-price medical care, according to a report released today.
