Costa Rica, officially the Republic of Costa Rica, is a country in Central America, bordered by Nicaragua to the north, Panama to the southeast, the Pacific Ocean to the west, and the Caribbean Sea to the east.
Costa Rica was sparsely inhabited by indigenous people before it came under Spanish rule in the 16th century. Once a poor and isolated colony, since becoming independent in the 18th century, Costa Rica has become one of the most stable, prosperous, and progressive nations in Latin America. It constitutionally abolished its army permanently in 1949, becoming the first and one of the few sovereign nations without a standing army.
Going to Costa Rica is a journey that can give you fresh air, away from the common pollution and stress of busy city life. Known to be one of the many countries that are aiming for minimizing carbon footprints, you can expect flora and fauna at its most natural state, where forests, and other ecosystems have been preserved by government efforts. Trekking, nature tripping, bird watching, and other outdoor activities would be your main avenue of spending intimate times together. But in case you get tired of all the walking, you can get on the Pacific side of the country and experience beaches with blue waters that invite rest and relaxation.
