If you’re traveling to a new destination, it’s always a good idea to learn more about the local customs.  It’s important to show your sensitivity towards the people who live in this location, and to realize that you are on their turf, as it were.  Learning about local customs in Costa Rica should help to make your travel experience more enjoyable and smoother for everyone involved.

In general, Costa Ricans (Ticos) are polite, non-confrontational people who treat everyone with respect.  The more polite and more patient that you are, the more you’ll truly get from Costa Rica while you are visiting.

Ticos tend to enjoy their lives and to focus on pleasures and family rather than on money. While you’re in Costa Rica, you should know that 10% is added to each restaurant bill that you’ll see as a service charge.  This means that most locals don’t give tips when they dine out.  However, in many of the tourist areas, tipping is expected, just because it’s become the social norm.  In general, if you are in a tourist area, you should leave a 5-10% tip.  If, however, you’re in a local restaurant or an out-of-the-way location, you won’t find it necessary to tip. Taxis should charge you by the meter and you don’t need to tip the taxi driver.

Enjoy your trip and pay attention to the local customs – you just might learn something and decide to adapt some of their ways as your own!

In fifteen countries of South America, over 25% of citizens live below the poverty line, and in seven poor countries the proportion of over 50% of the population. More than half of Latin American countries not yet reached the growth required to reduce the level of extreme poverty. Poverty and Democracy The attempt to ascertain the degree of association between these two concepts has been the exploration of various professionals. Michael Lewis-Beck, Distinguished Professor of the University of Michigan, and Ross Burkhart, Director Divisional Status Boise University, have arrived at interesting conclusions. These scholars, from time series revealed the existence of an inverse relationship between democracy and poverty. The more poverty, less democracy or, in other words, rich countries show stronger democracies, while those underdeveloped nations or in developing democracies fragile presented, broken, or systems of governments with absolutist regimes.

These findings may be constant part of a random sample of rich and poor nations. We could establish an almost direct relationship between GDP per capita (leaving for a moment the complexity of the term "development") and democratic quality. This exploration gives at least one surface primary idea: stable, developed democracies in general boast a gross domestic product per capita of over USD 1000. The links between development and democracy have been studied since the middle of last century. The American political sociologist and Semour Martin Lipset, and by 1959, in his book "Political Man" (2), argues that wealth fosters the emergence of democracy, as more wealth is less distributional conflict and thus less pressure on the political system.
