You're right Patito. Costa Rica is the only country in the Americas that does not have an army. I went there in the 1960s - before tourism really took off. I don't remember too much about it (young...into parties...), except that it was lush and humid.

Costa Rica also has a remarkably stable and democratic government, a very good public health system, and a very high level of environmental consciousness. It's a great place to visit and is still very affordable.

Thanks to the biological influences of neighboring North and South America and the Pacific and Caribbean oceans, this small mountainous country is home to one of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet. Thousands of miles of roads and nature trails make it easy to experience the wide spectrum of habitats, from steaming volcanoes to the cloud-shrouded jungles and deserted beaches. A model National Conservation System protects Costa Rica's invaluable natural heritage, including 9,000 different kinds of flowering plants and more species of birds than in the United States, Canada and northern Mexico combined.
