Costa Rica celebrates 200 years of Independence

200 years ago, on September 15, 1821, Costa Rica gained its independence from Spain as a democratic republic.  Since then, Costa Rica emerged as a sovereign democratic nation, creating over the years one of the most stable, prosperous, and peaceful democracies in the world.  Costa Rica has been recognized worldwide for its commitment to peace, its abolition of its military and its programs to provide education and healthcare to all its citizens. 

And of course in recent decades Costa Rica is best known for the widespread land conservation and creation of a large network of national parks and reserves that eventually emerged as its current brand of Eco Tourism that is now wildly successful and sought after tourism model that is being copied around the world.  You know when Google puts you on the banner of their search engine for the day you made it baby!
