The country of Costa Rica, known in Spanish as “rich coast,” is located close to the equator giving it a warm tropical climate all year round. Considered to be one of the more expensive countries in Central America, Costa Rica supposedly has a health care system that is ranked higher than the USA. Sandwiched between Nicaragua and Panama, Costa Rica is working to become the first carbon-neutral country in the world. This Central American country is a land without a military dedicating most of its economics in education and creating an army of teachers instead of an army of soldiers.
