San Jose, Costa Rica Tours - San Jose, Costa Rica Vacation Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=World1Tube San Jose is the capital of Costa Rica, head of the province of San José, and the nation's largest city. Located in the Central Valley, San José is the seat of national government, the focal point of political and economic activity, and the major transportation hub of this Central American nation. The population of San José Canton is 288,054, though the metropolitan area stretches beyond the canton limits and comprises a third of the country's population. Culturally, the city can be considered almost entirely European influenced, in part because of Spanish immigration soon after Costa Rica's discovery by Christopher Columbus, and the privileged classes which generally studied in Europe during the nineteenth century and early twentieth century. This can be seen in the architecture of the city, namely theatres, museums and houses in the city centre. It is named in honor of Joseph of Nazareth. Though few people live in the city center, it is the most important working area of the country, which brings in more than a million people daily. Despite its problems, according to studies in Latin America, San José is still one of the safest and least violent cities in the region. In 2006 the city was appointed Ibero-American Capital of Culture. San José is the sixth most important destination in Latin America, according to The MasterCard Global Destinations Cities Index 2012. San José ranked 15th in the world’s fastest growing destination cities by visitor cross-border spending. Main City Landmarks ================== Theatres and Auditoriums ----------------------------------------- San José has many beautiful theatres, many with European-inspired architecture. These buildings serve as the city's main tourist attractions; not only because of the architectural beauty, but because of the numerous cultural, musical, and artistic presentations and activities, which include traditional and modern Costa Rican and San José culture. The most well-known are: ---------------------------- The National Theatre of Costa Rica (Teatro Nacional de Costa Rica). The Melico Salazar Theatre (Teatro Popular Melico Salazar). The National Auditorium of The Children's Museum of Costa Rica (Museo de los Niños). The National Theatre of Costa Rica and the Melico Salazar Theatre present drama, dance performances and concerts throughout the year. Nevertheless, other 'smaller' theatres can be found throughout the city and provide a large array of entertainment. Teatro Variedades is San José's oldest theatre. Museums ============== San José is also host to various museums. These museums allow visitors to view Costa Rican history, scientific discoveries, pre-Columbian era culture and art, as well as modern Costa Rican art. The city is also host to the nation's museum of gold and museum of jade. Some of the city's main museums are: The Children's Museum (Museo de los Niños) The National Museum of Costa Rica (Museo Nacional de Costa Rica) The Museum of Pre-Columbian Gold (Museo de Oro Precolombino) The Museum of Costa Rican Art The Museum of Contemporary Art and Design (Museo de Arte y Diseño Contemporáneo) Parks, Plazas, and Zoos ======================= San José is home to many parks and squares (plazas in Spanish); where one can find gazebos, open green areas, recreational areas, lakes, fountains, statues and sculptures by Costa Rican artists and many different bird, tree and plant species. Parks ======= The National Park (Parque Nacional) Morazán Park (Parque Morazán) — with Neoclassical Temple of Music (Templo de la Música) pavilion. San José Central Park (Parque Central) La Sabana Metropolitan Park (Parque Metropolitano La Sabana) — largest park and "the lungs of San José," in Mata Redonda District (west city). Peace Park (Parque de la Paz) Okayama Park (Parque Okayama) — Japanese style garden and architectural elements, ornamental ponds, and garden sculptures. Plazas ===== Plazas, or town squares, are very prominent across San José' districts. Culture SquareLa Plaza de La Cultura (one example). Zoos ===== Simón Bolívar Zoo — city's only zoo, with a large variety of native Costa Rican and exotic animals and plant species.

Are Spaniards and Portuguese today mixed with North Africans or Arabs? Today we're going to be following up our last video on Latin America, and digging up the roots of the Iberian people groups. Because of the hectic environment in pre-modern Iberia, the genetics, language, culture and attitude of the groups living there are quite unique in Europe, and that makes it a very interesting place to learn about. Be sure to let me know your thoughts on Iberia and the rise of the Spaniards and Portuguese in the comments below. Thanks for watching!

Rincón de la Vieja National Park (HD) - Costa Rica Vacations Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=World1Tube Rincon de la Vieja Volcano, composed of nine separate but contiguous craters, is the largest of five volcanoes in the Guanacaste Mountain Range. The still-steaming volcano gives its name to the 35,000-acre national park that surrounds it. - Rincon de la Vieja National Park was created in 1973 to protect the 32 rivers and streams that make up the area’s important watershed. Within its borders, the park also houses the largest population of Costa Rica’s national flower, the guaria morada (Cattleya skinneri), a species of purple orchid. In addition to plant and mammal life, 300 bird species also make their homes here, and birdwatchers eagerly look forward to toucans, eagles and even the elusive quetzal. In comparison to some national parks, Rincon de la Vieja National Park seems designed for human exploration. Described as only gently active, the volcano sees very few minor eruptions. At its base, the park’s acres are threaded with trails and paths leading out to waterfalls, volcanic craters, fumaroles, mud cauldrons and hot springs. The Sendero Encantado leads along the park’s lowlands, winding through cloud forest and plains brimming with purple orchids before connecting to the park’s more famous Las Pailas hiking trail. Las Pailas translates to “The Cauldrons” or, in this case, “The Mud Pots.” A short circuit trail weaves through woods shaded by giant strangler figs, and leads past a seasonal waterfall, sulfurous and steaming fumaroles, a small volcano and, finally, the famous boiling mud pots. Just east of Las Pailas, the Sendero Cangreja sends hikers to tumbling waterfalls that cascade into cool, calm swimming holes and lagoons, including the popular Hidden Waterfalls and La Cangreja Waterfall. Thrill-seeking park guests may also make the eight-hour roundtrip trek to the Santa Maria crater at the volcano’s summit. The hike usually begins at the Santa Maria ranger station, east of Las Pailas, but hikers may also begin from the Las Pailas ranger station. Scrubby mountainside, tall grasses and a rugged trail await, leading travelers across fossilized lava flows and loose lava rock. The views from the volcano’s summit are fantastic, and on a clear day, it is possible to see straight to Lake Nicaragua. At the volcano’s base, visitors can relax at Los Azufrales, Rincon de la Vieja’s hot-sulfur springs. Bubbling at a cozy 107 degrees Fahrenheit, the springs are ideal for bathing and unwinding. (Experts recommend a maximum 30-minute limit per soak.) A nearby cool-water stream is ideal to cool off after a stress-relieving dip in the hot springs. Guests are required to hike only one trail in Rincon de la Vieja National Park before reporting back to the ranger station. If you fail to do so, the park rangers must begin to search for you. Weather: The park’s Pacific (western) side is dry between December and April; the Caribbean (eastern) side is lush and rainy year-round, and sees almost 200 inches of annual rainfall. Activities: Hiking, swimming and bird and wildlife watching are very popular activities in Rincon de la Vieja National Park. While horseback riding arranged by local lodges and hotels is very common outside the park, it is not permitted within the park’s boundaries. Camping is allowed in the park; please ask park rangers for more details and rates. Facilities: There are two ranger stations at Rincon de la Vieja National Park: Las Pailas (also known as the Las Espuelas station) and Santa Maria, the park’s headquarters. Trails: Trails wind throughout the park’s nearly 35,000 acres, giving visitors access to Rincon de la Vieja National Park’s volcanic attractions, including sulfurous fumaroles, bubbling mud pots, and a small volcanic crater. Geothermal heat warms the park’s hot springs, and several rushing waterfalls provide perfect cool-off spots after a long hike or heated soak in the therapeutic waters. Trails also lead to the volcano’s summit from both ranger stations. For a brief park overview, the Las Pailas circuit trail is highly recommended, and its paths play out like a “best of” tour through the park’s most spectacular scenes. Or try the Sendero Cangreja, a trail that weaves through wooded greenery before ending at the park’s most celebrated cascades, the Hidden Waterfalls. For more recommendations, speak with a park ranger. Flora & Fauna: Rincon de la Vieja is home to more than 300 bird species, including curassows, bellbirds, parrots, hummingbirds, owls, woodpeckers, tanagers, motmots, eagles and quetzals. Mammals are prevalent here, and coatis, deer, peccaries, two-toed sloth, squirrels and howler monkeys often greet park visitors.

This week I'm introducing one of the most Bio-Intense places on earth, as stated by National Geographic. It is Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula. Here you'll find a world of wildlife, nature and top eco-lodges that are truly magical and all of them are minutes away from the Corcovado National Park. THIS - really - is Costa Rica! Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula is found in the South East of the country. It's best reached via a short 45 minute domestic flight from San Jose into one of three local airports found in the area. Puerto Jimenez is the main town on the Osa Peninsula and has a population of just 2,000 inhabitants. This area used to be famous for it's gold mining back in the 1960's but has since become 'the most biologically intense place on Earth'. Here you can find at least half of all species living in Costa Rica, making this region a must for wildlife enthusiasts. This area of rare lowland rainforest enjoys a tropical climate all year round, and receives plenty of rainfall from August to September. In October 1975, what is now widely considered the crown jewel in the extensive system of national parks and biological reserves - was established: The Corcovado National Park. The Park covers a third of the Osa Peninsula, and is home to a vast array of wildlife including: the popular two and three-toed sloth, many colourful toucans, exotic species of dart frog, all four species of monkey found in Costa Rica, the puma and jaguar, as well as anteaters, coatis, ocelots, otters and crocs. - To name but a few... To match the wildlife there is a great many tours to choose from, most of which can be organised from the hotels and lodges in the area. You can select from nature hikes to whale watching, snorkeling trips to scuba diving out at the Isla del Caño reserve. In these protected waters you can expect to see some amazing marine life from humpback whales, turtles, dolphins and much, much more. The accommodation in the area encompsses nature retreats to true luxury, eco-resorts. The remote nature of the region makes for some of the most unique lodging in all of Costa Rica, run by owners who live and breathe sustainable tourism. The Aguila de Osa Inn is found just outside the town of Drake Bay to the west of the National Park. All your meals are included in this family friendly eco-lodge as well as some great day tours that leave straight from the hotel. Here you will find the best dive shop in the area. Copa de Arbol is a relatively new luxury, boutique hotel that opened in 2012. This romantic, jungle treehouse hotel offers great ocean views. All your meals are freshly prepared and included in your stay. Spacious, air-conditioned cabins are great for families or couples looking to get a true off the beaten path experience. If you're looking for a true nature experience then the Lapa Rios Ecolodge is widely considered to be the best eco-lodge in Costa Rica. Here you'll enjoy freshly prepared meals included in your stay, a great selection of tours that take you around the protected reserve and teach about the conservation efforts of Lapa Rios. Each of the 16 bungalows offer exquisite rainforest and ocean views. They are ideal for couples looking to experience Corcovado's wonderful wildlife first hand. So there we go, one Costa Rica's 'Lushest' locations, and even that is an understatement! Catch me next time for more info on everything Costa Rica! For Frog TV I'm Adam Baker, Hasta la proxima.

Welcome to my travelchannel.On my channel you can find almost 1000 films of more than 70 countries. See the playlist on my youtube channel.Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/user/nurettinodunya/playlists Costa Rica/San Jose San José is divided into 11 districts : Catedral, Carmen, Hatillo, Hospital, Uruca, Mata Redonda, Merced, Pavas, San Francisco de Dos Ríos, San Sebastián, Zapote. The districts are divided up into a number of neighborhoods San José is the capital of Costa Rica, head of the province of San José, and the nation's largest city. Located in the Central Valley, San José is the seat of national government, the focal point of political and economic activity, and the major transportation hub of this Central American nation. The population of San José Canton is 288,054, though the metropolitan area stretches beyond the canton limits and comprises a third of the country's population.Culturally, the city can be considered almost entirely European influenced, in part because of Spanish immigration soon after Costa Rica's discovery by Christopher Columbus, and the privileged classes which generally studied in Europe during the nineteenth century and early twentieth century. This can be seen in the architecture of the city, namely theatres, museums and houses in the city centre. It is named in honor of Joseph of Nazareth.Though few people live in the city center, it is the most important working area of the country, which brings in more than a million people daily. Despite its problems, according to studies in Latin America, San José is still one of the safest and least violent cities in the region. In 2006 the city was appointed Ibero-American Capital of Culture.San José is also the sixth most important destination in Latin America, according to The MasterCard Global Destinations Cities Index 2012. In the global ranking, San Jose obtained the 15th position among the world's top 20 fastest growing destination cities by visitor cross-border spending. The population grew during the eighteenth century colonial planning, which was different from the traditional foundation plans of Spanish cities in the continent. History: Founded in 1738 by order of Cabildo de León, its objective was to concentrate the scattered inhabitants of the Aserrí Valley. To do so, the construction of a chapel near the area known as La Boca del Monte was ordered, this was completed two years later. That year St. Joseph was chosen as parish patron, hence its current name. The chapel, which was very modest, was erected with help from the church of Cartago.San Jose had water problems, and that was one of the main reasons that the population grew slowly. However, the water supply was assured by ditches, and the fertility of the surrounding fields along with the installation of the Tobacco Factory of Costa Rica, which would aide urban concentration. As San Jose, unlike what happened to Cartago, was not founded with a formal act of foundation, it was not considered as a city or town, and consequently the city lacked a city government. It was not until the enactment of the Constitution of Cadiz in 1812 when San Jose had its first city government. In 1813, the Spanish parliament gave the town the title of city, which was then lost in 1814 when Ferdinand VII of Spain annulled the proceedings by the courts. The municipal government was restored in 1820 with the title of city population. San José is one of the youngest capital cities in Latin America by year of conception, though it was not named capital until 1823. Today it is a modern city with bustling commerce, brisk expressions of art and architecture, and spurred by the country's improved tourism industry, it is a significant destination and stopover for foreign visitors.San José exerts a strong influence because of its proximity to other cities (Alajuela, Heredia and Cartago) and the country's demographic assemblage in the Central Valley.

In May of 2015, Scott Carrlee traveled to Costa Rica as part of a Research Abroad study trip with the International Development Doctoral Program of the University of Southern Mississippi. The trip included a stop at four indigenous territories where Carrlee and fellow researchers gained firsthand knowledge of the impact of tourism on the indigenous population through interviews and participation in indigenous-led rain forest tours. Scott has been working for the Alaska State Museums since 2000. Prior to coming to Juneau, he held conservator positions at the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian, the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh, and at an archaeological excavation in Turkey. After 6 years as the Alaska State Museum's conservator, he became the Curator of Museum Services, providing technical assistance to museums and the public around Alaska. Through this position, he promotes the idea that the greatest tool yet invented for the preservation of objects is the museum itself. Recorded on Tuesday, November 17, 2015

Visit us a http://ec.ba.ttu.edu for more information We strongly believe that access to reliable affordable energy is the cornerstone to prosperity in emerging economies. With rising energy demand and cost, some sectors benefit while others struggle. The population most vulnerable to energy deprivation is the lower economic segment of a developing nation, often the nations rich in energy resources where our industry operates. World Energy Project provides energy resources to small communities in developing countries where access to electricity is unavailable through traditional sources. The project utilizes solar panels capable of providing 70 lumens of light to an individual home. Students travel to the communities to learn about system design, microfinance theory and assist with the installation of panels. As students graduate from the Energy Commerce program, most immediately go to work in oil and gas related industries though an increasing number are pursuing the Economics and Alternative Markets concentration for careers involving finance economics and emerging energy technologies. Due to strong industry demand, the starting salaries are increasingly generous. While we want all of our students to be financially successful, we also recognize that a university education should include more than job skill training. An important component particularly in the age of globalization is the realization of the connection among all facets of the global economy. Few American students have an awareness of the importance of community service and still fewer any international experience. They are however, quick to realize that an increase in the price of energy can be beneficial to their careers. The other side of course, is that rising prices may cause many to do without basic energy services. The goal is to teach students that while our industry is exciting and potentially lucrative, it is also vitally important to the health and well being of the world's population. Their career efforts are significant beyond what they see and do on a day to day basis.
