Escape to Costa Rica

This new series follows science-writer Gaia Vince as she and her family explore Costa Rica. Gaia wants to understand how this small tropical country in Central America is so far ahead of the rest of us in finding a balance between our human needs and the needs of our natural world.


She, along with her husband Nick and their two young children have packed up their life in the UK to trek, climb and dives into one of the most biologically dynamic countries on earth. A country that has no armed forces, runs its national grid on volcanoes and rivers, and is leading the race to become the first carbon neutral country on earth. This series will explore the issues we all face over the coming decades through this beautiful location and through Gaia's unique anthropological lens.
