Private Investigators in Costa Rica

The Republic of Costa Rica boasts a population of approximately 4.3 million people, and its official language is Spanish. The country is bordered by Nicaragua and Panama on two sides, and the Pacific and the Caribbean Sea on the other two. The primary export is coffee, and its government and economy have proven to be more consistently stable than nearly every other Latin American country over the past several years. There has not been any notable political violence since the early 1940’s, when an open rebellion resulted in the democratization of the government and the constitutional abolishment of its standing army. Despite political stability, however, Costa Rica is still a developing country, and poverty levels are fairly high. As such, crime levels are relatively high as well, particularly homicide and “smash and grab” type crimes. The most prolific criminal enterprise in the country is its narcotics trade, specifically cocaine.
