Costa Rica

One thing unique to Costa Rica and our people is that we have not had armed forces for the last 50 years.

Costa Ricans decided that there was no reason to maintain a permanent army and those resources could be better used for public education.  In this manner Costa Rica has become a symbol, worldwide, known for the slogan "Forever live Peace and Work"  (the final refrain of our National Anthem) as well as for having one of the highest percentages of literacy in the world.

Today, Costa Rica enjoys the highest standard of living in Central America, the second highest infant survival rate and the highest levels of social and economic stability.
