Welcome to Costa RicaEdit

Costa Rica is a popular destination nowadays. People come from all over the world to tour the country, meet the people, and enjoy the sights and sounds. Some even like it so much that they wind up staying.

The Costa Rica Wiki is an information repository dealing with many different aspects of life here. Everything from language, to getting around the country, to the food and sights can be found on the wiki. We hope this project will provide you with useful information to plan your trip.

We are a community-based project. Feel free to have a look around, comment, and even share any information you think could help expand and better this site. This project is a work in progress, and is far from over. Every day we're adding new photos and info, so keep checking back every so often and see what's new!
