This apparent tolerance in the conduct of the Costa Rican, has become a friendly person, spontaneous and helpful. In Costa Rica, the smiles are sincere, and people’s faces convey a special warmth and charm that is hard to find elsewhere.

With the abolition of the army in 1948, Costa Rica reinforces a commitment to peace and democracy that Costa Ricans have always had.Instead of spending on troops and weapons, Costa Rica has invested those resources in health and education.
