A few days ago I saw the movie (And read the book) Divergent… And it truly made me think… If you haven’t seen it… Look for it! And watch it!
Divergent shows this post-apocalyptic realm where a part of humanity after wars and such decided to divide the population among “factions” and each human would decide to belong to one over the other faction depending on their inner call. The factions are, basically: Dauntless, Abnegation, Candor, Erudite and Amity.
I am not going to get into the movie, or the book subject… it is a cool movie/book and worth the time of watching it. But I thought about… If Divergent factions were coming to Costa Rica… Who would do what?
And here is my conclusion:
Let’s do it by alphabetical order:
Abnegation: This is the faction of the givers: the people who loves to give, to work for others, that forget about themselves and really enjoys generosity and altruism.
Their thing in Costa Rica, definitely is voluntary work, rescue centers, visiting schools and helping the children or the elder.
And yes! Definitely there are a lot of places to o that! If you want to come to Costa Rica and travel with a purpose we do have a whole list of possibilities for you: From indigenous villages to rescue centers in the rainforest. Places where you will work in joy and smiles with costarricans that give their lives for their cause.
Amity: They are for peace and joy. And Costa Rica it is about yoga and conservation programs, sustainability and agro tourism.
If there is a country to learn and live sustainability and conservation is Costa Rica. Mostly all hotels have very serious commitments to save electricity and water, to recycle garbage, and be as happy as you can be with the minimum of resources possible.
If you aim to teach your family some healthy practices and a sustainable life, definitely Costa Rica is it!
Amity also is about nature… And so! Birdwatchers, plant lovers, rainforest hikers, tree huggers… Wow! Costa Rica is so much for you it hurts!
Costa Rica is considered to be the happiest country of the World with the minimum resources!
Candor loves honesty and justice. Costa Rica abolished its army since 1948 being the most peaceful country of the Americas in the last 200 years. (And probably of the World). It has a great system of health care, housing and a big middle class.
It is a country where opportunity rises every day and we are proud to say that our education allows us to be one of the first countries in terms of foreign investment.
For those who like to see a happy country, living in hope and tranquility Costa Rica is your destination!
Erudite: Those love knowledge! They are into culture, and science, experiments and progress! And in a country that is known to be the most innovative in terms of technology, and where the education is free and compulsory since 1886… This country is bliss!
You will find a very high literacy rate and the fact that in Costa Rica universities are so affordable we are, literally speaking, flooded with expertise in all areas. A country where art, music, dance and literature is in the cities as much as in the touristic areas.
And last, but not at all least… Dauntless! Those would simply find a way to move to Costa Rica… Ziplines, bungee, paragliding and surfing, Jet Ski, forest hikes, mountain biking and fantastic IV and V rafting tours… You name the adventure, that except for those that are done in snow… We got them all! And everywhere in Costa Rica… Wherever you go, you will find adventure waiting for you! And Costa Rica will become a usual visit for any adventurer who wants to live it all!
