Where Is Costa Rica Located?

Costa Rica is a small country in Central America, sharing borders with Nicaragua to the north and Panama to the south. It is surrounded by the Caribbean Sea to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. Even though it's tiny, about the size of West Virginia, its location is pretty special. Imagine it as a gem tucked between two big oceans, making it a perfect spot for nature lovers and adventurers.
Some people might not realize how diverse Costa Rica is because of its size. Yes, it's small, but it's like a mini-world of its own. There are dense jungles filled with unique wildlife, and beautiful scenery along the coasts.
