People from Costa Rica
People in Costa Rica are a rich mix of pre-Hispanic native populations with immigrants from Europe, and other cultures like Asian and African descendants.
Costa Ricans known as “ticos” are famous for being happy, friendly people, proud of their country and their democracy without a military since 1948. Ticos will be happy to help you if you are lost or recommend you their favorite place to visit, sometimes telling you a local story or a joke. “Pura vida” (which means pure life) is their famous phrase that is used for pretty much everything like an answer for “How are you?” or for saying something is good or a person is nice.
The main city in the Central Pacific coast of Costa Rica is Jaco Beach. Jaco Beach is located only 1 hour and 15 minutes away from the San Jose international airport. Jaco is a great place to visit as it offers most of the attractions that make Costa Rica famous.
