Costa Rica

Costa Rica does not have a military and has not suffered from political turmoil like its neighbors Nicaragua and Panama and is considered politically stable. Violent crimes are uncommon, especially in rural areas. Taking public transportation, riding in taxis, and driving rental cars are considered safe. Theft is a problem throughout the country-- especially rental car breakins.

Costa Rica has one of the largest systems of national parks in the world. The Costa Rican government has tried to promote eco-friendly tourism to preserve its incredibly rich biodiversity.
