this one... And this one... There are many attractions
in Costa Rica such as Parque
Nacionalde Diversiones an amusement park. This amusement park is even more special then most because every penny they make in the amusement park goes to the Children's Hospital. The park relies on donations to cover their expenses. They also have fairs and carnivals in Costa Rica with rides and games, although nothing seems to compare to the amusement park Parque Nacionalde Diversiones. Costa Rica In Costa Rica there are many sports and not just the ones we see on T.V.! Although they watch Futball (we call it soccer in the U.S.A.), basketball, baseball, and sometimes even live bullfighting, Costa Ricans like to stay active by playing these sports as well. They enjoy Futball (soccer), baseball, basketball, volleyball, surfing, tennis, and auto racing. Futball is a national sport as well as bullfighting; therefore they have a large bullfighting rink and a futball stadium. Surroundings West To the west of Costa Rica

Agriculture takes the lead at a percentage of a 58%. Industrial jobs are next at 22%. Finally, service jobs come in last with 20%. Some of the crops on the farms include coffee beans, pineapples, sugar, rice, beans, and potatoes. Agricultural jobs also include raising cattle for the meat and chopping down trees for timber. All these materials and food are sold or exported. The government gets the tax if sold, and if exported the government gets the money from exporting it. So all around agricultural jobs are very important. Agricultural Jobs Industrial jobs include making clothing or textiles to put in stores. This also includes food processing and microprocessors as well. It includes making plastic and construction materials. Most of the things are exported overseas for a lot of money which mostly goes to the government. This makes industrial jobs good for the economy. Industrial Jobs Service jobs are jobs that help or assist people; such as a bus driver or a doctor. Firemen and people who work on rescue teams are also types of service jobs.
