Welcome to Costa Rica. Costa Rica, known as the Switzerland of Central America is a country in Central America, bordered by Nicaragua to the North, Panama to the south – southeast, the Pacific Ocean to the west and south, and the Caribbean Sea to the east.
The physical features of Costa Rica and its natural geography are nothing short of spectacular. With its diverse physical makeup, the Costa Rican landscape flows from teaming mountain peaks, scattered with volcano’s, waterfalls, and hot springs and on through to its mystical cloud forests. The lush green valleys and verdant rain forests provide an incredible backdrop leading down to the beautiful, beautiful beaches.
It should be noted that Costa Rica is one of the most consolidated democracies in Latin America. It is the only Latin American country included in the list of the 22 oldest democracies in the world. They won worldwide recognition to abolish the army on December 1, 1948; abolition was perpetuated in the 1949 Constitution.
