It was in 1502, during his 4th and final trip, that Christopher Columbus discovered the region of which Costa Rica is a part; persuaded to have reached the Indies, and not an unknown continent.
The few natives present welcomed the foreigners by offering them stuffs sewn with gold. This is one of the reasons invoked to explain the name that will end up wearing the country, “Rich Coast”.
Colonized by the Spanish from the sixteenth to the nineteenth century, Costa Rica acquires its independence on September 15, 1821. Since December 1st,1948, Costa Rica has been a neutral country and has become the first nation in the world to have constitutionally suppressed its army.
