Costa Rica’s fictitious Nublar Island has become Jurassic World

Cinemas worldwide are showing trailers to “Jurassic World”, a sequel to the phenomenon, ‘Jurassic Park’ that will hit the big screen in June 2015. We expect a boom of families travelling to Costa Rica in the summer months as a result of this “free publicity” of Costa Rica.

Of course, you won’t find any of the scary dinosaurs featured in the park, but if you are staying at a rain forest eco lodge or a sustainable beachfront resort and hear the roaring of the howler monkeys the first time, you actually might actually think there is something out there. And some of the local flora and fauna has been around when dinosaurs ruled the earth.  Stay tuned for more…

Not quite a dinosaur, but excitiing to see these animals in their natural habitat. Costa Rica is not a  Jurassic World theme park, but the wildlife is easily observed easily all over the country.

Plot details (revealed) about Jurassic World (from the JW website): 

Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar, an island located off Central America‘s Pacific Coast, near Costa Rica, now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. This new park is owned by the Masrani Global Corporation, but attendance has been declining due to the lack of new attractions.   Owen Grady (Chris Pratt), a member of the park’s on-site staff, conducts behavioral research on a group of Velociraptors,  known as Blue, CharlieDelta and Echo.  At the corporation’s request, the park’s geneticists create a genetically modified hybrid dinosaur, known as Indominus Rex, to boost visitor attendance,  but it breaks loose and runs wild throughout the park, forcing the staff to consider extreme measures to stop it.
