POPULATION

Costa Rica's success story was under pressure in the 1990's due to falling prices for the country's traditional exports, coffee, bananas and meat. Since then, the economy has improved, but the country has had a trade deficit and relatively high inflation until 2005. Check youremailverifier for Costa Rica social condition facts.
