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.
