Costa Rica General Information
Sandwich between Nicaragua on the north and Panama on the south is a small country known as Costa Rica.
Most flights to Costa Rica will land in San Jose, situated in the center of the country beside a ring of dramatic volcanoes and green uplands which are always in view. The city stands at an altitude of 3,000 feet and it is a bustling business center of Costa Rica.
The coffee and banana industries caused San Jose to grow quite quickly after World War II and today, about a quarter of the country’s population lives here. It became the capital city in 1737 after independence and the national monument here is the commemoration of that victory.
The reason this tropical country has become a popular place to travel to these days is eco-tourism. Travellers are drawn to the country’s vast areas of healthy greenness. A lot of the terrain is rugged and virtually unexplored, and despite rapid deforestation, there is still plenty of clean air left.
