April’s Country of the Month: Costa Rica

Costa Rica3

Costa Rica is a lush and beautiful land with extravagant scenery and rich culture. The official language of Costa Rica is Spanish. The capital city is San José, with a population of about 300,000 people, located in the geographic center of the country. Costa Rica has a tropical climate throughout the whole year, and would offer a nice break from Oklahoma’s unpredictable winter weather. Students may have heard much about Costa Rica’s advanced environmental policies and awareness, or about the country’s unique lack of official military personnel. Explore the nation, and experience Costa Rican culture and cuisine through the opportunities listed below.
