Costa Rica is a peaceful country and its beautiful scenery has seen it dubbed the ‘Switzerland of the Americas.’
The country is characterised by a mix of protected areas, social and political stability, high education levels and a very efficient infrastructure.
The country's strategic position reflects the government's positive attitude toward foreign investment. If you move to Costa Rica you’ll find that people tend to talk slower than in other parts of Latin America. They will be patient and encourage you to learn the language, so if you don’t already speak Spanish take some lessons and give it a go.
