Unlike what happened in other Central American countries, Costa Rica has not had political problems, has been free to develop in the best possible way and is open to Western tourist flows long since. This has contributed to the evolution of the infrastructure and various Costa Rican systems, which are now among the best in the region. Winter tourists consider it a true Central American jewel. An oasis of peace and tranquility in the midst of less peaceful states. Constant Costa Rican political stability has contributed to increasing, over time, the services reserved for the flow of travelers in search of winter warmth.
