This chapter looks at Costa Rican texts which pick up the story of Latin American environmental history in the mid- to late twentieth century as the republics of the isthmus embraced agricultural export economies and neoliberal policies associated with globalization. It explores three Costa Rica novels which investigate the regional, economical, and environmental history of the state. The central point of these stories revolves around culture, land usage, and politics in Costa Rica.

Keywords:   Costa Rica, environmental history, ecotourism, culture, land usage, politics, Latin American, Anacristina Rossi, Tatiana Lobo, Joaquín Gutiérrez
