"Strong European Influences" History & Economics Tip by SumTingWong

History & Economics, Costa Rica: 10 reviews and 8 photos

by SumTingWong

Costa Rica is one of the only spanish-seasking nations (besides Spain, Chile, and Argentina) with an extremely large population of European decent. In fact there arn't really any (excelp for one small group in the south) indigious tribes. Therefore, local customes are very westernized. Just show proper behavior around others as you would do in any country.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
