Have you ever heard that every year the Amazon Rainforest is losing 78 million acres of land every year? Well it’s sadly true, the reason it’s happening is because of all the jobs in Brazil. That’s what’s hurting it and destroying the Forest, people are trying to do everything to get back the Amazon Rainforest.
Costa Rica is such a diverse country. With an array of different ecosystems and a mixture of people with roots from all over, it is no surprise that the music has just as much diversity. Costa Rica has plenty of influences on their music: Indigenous, European, African, Western, and other Latin American countries. Therefore, music in Costa Rica stems from various genres because of the many influences from other cultures.
Costa Rica was first inhabited by its indigenous people sometime between 12,000-11,000 years ago. They were thought to have been nomadic hunters. The first Europeans to arrive were the Spanish in 1502 with the arrival of Christopher Columbus (on his fourth journey) at Puerto Limón. Over 50 years later, in 1561, the Spanish had set up settlements in what is now Cartago in the Central Valley. By the end of the sixteenth century, Costa Rica participated in colonial trade, mostly with foodstuff such as corn, beans, honey and chicken. After centuries of oppression from the Spanish, Costa Rica gained its independence along with Mexico and other central American countries around 1821. The history of Costa Rica from the indigenous people to the Spanish who explored and colonized it, helps explain the various influences on its culture and communication. Costa Rica has been heavily influenced by Spanish culture including the Caribbean province of Limón and the Cordillera de Talamanca which are influenced by Jamaican immigrants and indigenous
Deep in the Amazonian Rainforest, nestled along the Marañon River in Northern Peru and Eastern Ecuador are the Jivaro Tribes. These tribes have sustained themselves for many generations over the centuries. The Jivaro people stick close to their kin and form strong bonds with them as a result of making them stronger and form alliances. When looking deeper into the indigenous population, the Jivaro are divided into much more smaller groups and within each group differs with customs and traditions. These groups: the Shuar, Achuar, Humabisa, and Aguaruna, may reside in the same area, but how each village operates depends on the environment and the influence of the non-indigenous inhabitants around them. This slight change in elements is what gives the Jivaro their differential attributes. Their identify that makes them unique throughout the new and old world. The identity that some seek to change, because they have a different views on how they preach their religion and the way in which they live.
Imagine this, the hard rocks underneath your feet. The wind blowing in your face, and hot lava streaming through the area. Lava rocks tumble down the bigger rocks with the sound of the lava popping, reminding you of the candy pop rocks. The steam flowing up like your boiling water and needing clean water badly. Keeping eyes out watching for predators, located in the mountains of Hawaii. Volcano Kilauea is the oldest volcano in the world and is 300,000 to 600,000 years old. It 's a big rock that is always surrounded by lava day and night. What if you lived here? How would you survive? The main impacts in this environment are animals, air quality, and humans.
Another excellent answer to the question “when is the best time to go to Costa Rica?” would be July and August when there’s a bit more rain but even fewer visitors and lower prices. In fact there’s no bad time to go” (Costa Rica 1). The best time to travel to Costa Rica would be during November through April because the weather is so great. It is the dry season meaning, it will not be too cold for swimming or being outside during night, hiking and exploring through the rainforest will not making you worry about too much rain. Although rainfall is anywhere from May through December and in this time it could be a little dangerous to travel or try going to the beach. The upside, if you 're not afraid of a little rain, exploring through the rainforest
They were occasional cannibals who ate human flash of their prisoners of war, including any children they came across. They were ferocious people when it came to war, and they lived a simple life, but with the other savagery they displayed in the book, I find this “savagery” overstated. In page 58, the native’s physical features and lack of clothing were documented, and most of the savage nature can easily be explained by the environment they lived in, or be compared to French culture. I don’t find it savage at all that the natives have gone around naked. Brazil is a hot and wet place and it would be killer to walk about in any garments. Tattooing is common in both Tupimamba and European seafaring culture. Even the Tupimamba tools are equal or better than French tools. Most aspects of the native’s culture, I found, were either different or equal. Both the Tupimamba and French seem to like to joke around with each other, primarily on how they eat their food (pg 75). Laughter is the most human emotion, and to see both cultures share jokes is to see how interesting both cultures can be. Many other comparisons can be made. The Tupimamba’s love of their drink can be compared to the “civilized” Germans (pg 75), or how the women of both cultures take great care in their hair and beauty (pg 64). And I find it beautiful that both cultures, French and Tupimamba exhibit altruism by housing each other. The French housed some Tupimamba
Today I’m going to tell you about Costa Rica. Also I am going to visit there. First what I am ready knew about Costa Rica is that it is an island and there is a lot of rain forest. What I didn’t know about Costa Rica is that they have 4.5 million people in Costa Rica. Also you can see d different kind of hummingbirds! You can also see 40 different kind of monkeys!
Danger, darkness, and the absence of everything that would normally make someone feel at home, will all haunt a person if they go to the Napo River in Ecuador. The dangers of jungle are definitely not for everyone, which is made evident when Dillard says, “And at your feet is a swath of ants bearing triangular bits of green leaf. The ants with their leaves look like a wide fleet of sailing dinghies-but they do not quit” (246). The jungle contains no artificial light source, so if one does not make friends with the locals then their stay in the jungle will not be a fun time. The largest negative of the jungle though is what is not there. If one goes to the jungle, then they have to say goodbye to most of the luxuries they enjoy daily. The
Costa Rica is a country in Central America. It is bordered by Nicaragua to the north, Panama to the southwest, the Pacific Ocean to the West, the Caribbean Sea to the East, and Ecuador to the South of Cocos Island.

Inhabited by indigenous people ( having a set of specific rights based on their historical ties to a particular territory, and their cultural or historical distinctiveness from other populations that are often politically dominant) before coming under Spanish control in the 16th century. Costa Rica is considered one of the most stable, prosperous, and progressive nations in Latin America.
