Costa Rica

The original reason why i went to Costa Rica was to visit my cousin. Then i say how beautiful it is. Costa Rica is bordered by Nicaragua to the north and Panama to the east and south. The population is 4,509,290 people in a land area of 19,652 square miles. The official language is, of course, spanish. The GDP per capita is about $6,543.
The Church of Our Lady of the Angels is a good christian church. This church was founded on August 18, 1814. It was designated one of the first three Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monuments in 1962. It has also been designated as a California Historical Landmark.
Another place you can visit is Poás Volcano National Park. The parks name in spanish is Parque Nacional Volcán Poás. The great thing about the crater is that you can get all the way to the edge of the crater. The main crater is 950 feet deep and is quire active. It has frequent small geysers and lava eruptions. The last major eruptions were during 1952-54.
