Costa Rica’s Blue Zone

Residents of the Nicoya Peninsula tend to live longer than almost anywhere in the world. Given the lack of top-flight medical facilities until recently, this appears to be an achievement based on lifestyle, diet, air and water quality and a commitment to family.

In northwestern Costa Rica, residents live even longer than people in the rest of the country. This area — the Nicoya Peninsula — is about 70 miles long and 30 miles wide. Surfer beaches and upscale resorts hem the peninsula’s western edge. But inland, forest-covered hills and cow pastures blanket most of the terrain.

“Judging by the dusty villages where neighbors hang out on porches, or the rural homes where women still cook on ancient wood-burning stoves, you’d never guess that the Nicoya is the longest-life place in the Americas.” ABCNews
