Where is Costa Rica located
The country of Costa Rica is located in Central America, 2 hours flying south of Miami. We are a tropical country, with abundant beaches, rainforests, a well developed tourism industry and two international airports. The country is located between Panama and Nicaragua. Costa Rica is such a successful tourism destination, because its nature is unique, as diverse as it gets, and national parks, rainforests, beaches and volcanoes are everywhere. Costa Rica is also one of the safest countries in the area, and people in Costa Rica, called Ticos, are well known around the world for their friendliness and willingness to help and serve. Costa Rica is located between the countries of Panama to the South and Nicaragua, which is our northern border neighbor. The rest of the country is surrounded by water, the Caribbean or Atlantic to the East and the Pacific Ocean to the West. Costa Rica is a small country of only a bit more than 50 000 square kilometers, approximately the size of West Virginia. Contrary to what people believe, Costa Rica is not an island, it`s just that sometimes, we get mixed up with Puerto Rico, and funny, sometimes people write and call us asking for trips to Costa Rico, or Puerta Rica, or all sorts of combinations.
