information about COSTA RICA

Dubbed the “Switzerland” of Central America, the Republic of Costa Rica has more to offer than relative prosperity and peace to some. The country has a natural beauty that will leave no one indifferent.

Imagine a central mountain range that plunges into the Pacific waters to the west and that of the Caribbean Sea to the east. In this peaceful nation, probably the only one in the world that does not maintain a regular army, one can become “doctor of Peace at the University of Peace (Universidad para la Paz, Ciudad Colón), founded in 1980. However, if lazing on a beach lined with coconut trees, diving in warm water, watch the monkeys and birds, or climb a volcano is not part of your desires, do not Costa Rica. You do not feel great emotions and cultural leisurely pace of daily life seem very boring for hyperactive.
