So here we are, Costa Rica 🙂
First of all, a small introduction so that everyone knows a few facts about Costa Rica 🙂
The Republic of Costa Rica with approximately 4.5 milion habitants and 51.100 square km of land is one of the most developed countries of Latin America.
The capital city San Jose (appr. 310.000 habitants.) is one of the 7 regions in the country. Costa Rica borders with Nicaragua on North and Panama on South and is also known to be the first of only a few sovereign nations without a standing army.
There are 14 known volcanoes in Costa Rica, and six of them have been active in the last 75 years. Costa Rica has two coasts with total 1290 km of beauty, divided in pacific and carribean side.
Costa Rica is known for its progressive environmental policies, being the only country to meet all five criteria established to measure environmental sustainability.
Costa Rica’s seasons are defined by how much rain falls during a particular period. The year can be split into two periods, the dry season known to the residents as summer, and the rainy season, known locally as winter.
In Costa Rica, the main language is spanish and you can pay either with USD or with CRC (Costa Rican Colon). So far, from our own experience it is better to pay with CRC, because the convertion between USD and CRC may vary.
