Costa Rica is a country in Central America, bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west and south and the Atlantic Ocean to the east.
Costa Rica, constitutionally abolished its army permanently in 1949. It is the only Latin American country included in the list of the world’s 22 older democracies. Costa Rica has consistently been among the top Latin American countries in terms of the Human Development Index. The country is ranked 3rd in the world, and 1st among the Americas, in terms of the 2010 Environmental Performance Index.
Pura Vida literally means “pure life”, but the meaning is closer to “full of life”, “purified life”, “this is living!”, “going great”, or “cool!” Costa Ricans use the phrase to express a philosophy of strong community, perseverance, resilience in overcoming difficulties with good spirits, enjoying life slowly, and celebrating good fortune of magnitudes small and large alike.
