Economy

Costa Rica's economy has remained stable over the past several decades. The country relies heavily on tourism (specifically, ecotourism), agriculture, and electronics exports. Exports are becoming increasingly diversified in the past ten years from rapid growth in the tech manufacturing sector. Tourism remains strong, with the biodiversity of the country making ecotourism popular. Costa Rica's natural resources - namely, hydroelectric power, forest products, and fisheries also contribute to the country's economy. Costa Rica's primary agricultural exports include: bananas, pineapples, coffee, beef, sugar, rice, dairy products, vegetables, fruits and ornamental plants.
