Costa Rica literally translates to “rich coast” and there are many different reasons and advantages that make anyone living here feel ‘rich’.  We feel the wonderful citizens (population ~4.5 million) of this beautiful country is its greatest asset. They are some of the friendliest and helpful people in the world. Costa Ricans work very hard, for long hours, and less pay than what almost all foreigners would work for. HOWEVER, their positive outlook on life, their friendly attitude and their big, friendly hearts, makes anyone living here truly ‘rich’.Costa Rica Ox Cart
