Costa Rica - Switzerland of Central America. In any case, this country is very peaceful; it has no army since 1948 and is more prosperous for Central American relations. I heard a lot about the incredible nature of this country, and in summer 98, during one month of 'unemployment', I’ve changed my job, I took the opportunity to travel to Costa Rica to discover the incredible nature and visit the friendly people. It was a trip exactly to my taste. Lots of nature, a perfect group and many motives for my camera.
