Blue Zones are regions of the world where Dan Buettner claims people live much longer than average. He identified five regions as "Blue Zones" : Okinawa (Japan); Sardinia (Italy); Nicoya (Costa Rica); Icaria (Greece); and among the Seventh-day Adventists in Loma Linda, California. He offers an explanation, based on data and first hand observations, for why these populations live healthier and longer lives than others. It all started with the identification of Sardinia's Nuoro province as the region with the highest concentration of male centenarians. Zeroing in on the cluster of villages with the highest longevity, concentric blue circles were drawn on the map and began referring to the area
Thank you for visiting our blog. We write about Costa Rica in general, especially about Samara, the Nicoya peninsula and Guanacaste. We touch upon nature, wild life, flora, the ocean and it's magnificent creatures, culture and much more.
We love the sloths and the turtles so they may be over-represented in our blog posts :-)
As the Nicoya peninsula is one of the five blue zones in the world, you can also expect posts on easy living, food and how to stay healthy and become a centenarian!
