Costa Rica presentation
Transcript of Costa Rica presentation
By Elise King Costa Rica's Climate and Land Costa Rica has two seasons: A dry season in December to May, and a rainy season from June to November. Costa Rica is on the Caribbean coast and has beautiful beaches lined with palm trees. The climate in Costa
Rica is subtropical. On the Atlantic ocean the plains are hotter and steamier than the cool mountain areas which are covered in mist. The rainfall keeps Costa Rica lush and green so that it is called the "Garden of Central America." In the highlands of Costa Rica the temperature is 75 degrees farenheit. Poas, Irazu, Turrialba and Brava are the four Costa Rican volcanoes. The Culture in Costa Rica The Costa Rica flag is red, blue and white, and bears the coat of national arms. Travelling in and out of Costa Rica presents no single problem. In Costa Rica they speak Spanish. 3.5 million people live in Costa Rica. Costa Rican food is mostly rice and beans. 90% of the country is Catholic. Costa Rica is the happiest place on earth according to research. The first person to find Costa Rica was Christopher Columbus. In 1519 the first Spanish settlers arrived. When Columbus arrived there were already four tribes living in Costa Rica (Around 400,000 Indians). Nowadays 98% of Costa Ricans are white, the natives are called 'Ticos.' In February 2010 Laura Chinchilla was the country's first woman president. The Spanish called the country the "Rich coast" but there was not much gold so they turned to farming. Interesting fact:
Costa Rica does not have a national army! It has not had one since 1949! The Osa Peninsula is a paradise of rainforests and beaches in Costa Rica. The forest is full or wildlife like jaguar, puma, sloth and four species of monkeys. There are more than 4,000 plant species and the trees can grow over 200 feet tall! Sadly the forests are starting to disappear due to farming, hunting and development of land. Costa Rican monkeys have become shy and hard to spot. The ocean by Costa Rica contains coral reefs and colorful fish. You can help save the rainforests of the Osa Peninsula by 'adopting' an acre of land for only $50 at SaveNature.org. The money goes to protect birds, animals, plants and trees. Costa Rica's History Costa Rica's Furry Friends and Nature
