Costa Rica throughout the Ages

While Costa Rica, or “Rich Coast,” received its name from the Spaniard Gil Gonzalez Davila who was inspired by all of the gold jewelry worn by the inhabitants, the land was actually brought to the Europe’s attention through Christopher Columbus in 1502 who discovered Costa Rica on his way to his final voyage to the New World.

Before his arrival, civilization had thrived in Costa Rica for nearly 10,000 years. Though the indigenous people numbered only a few hundred thousand, they were firmly rooted in the land and had built a great civilization. Archeological finds have proven that the civilization was very advanced. In fact, ruins of a large city complete with aqueducts have been found east of San Jose. Exquisite and sophisticated gold and jade jewelry has also been uncovered.

Sadly, the civilization was not strong enough to withstand Spanish Colonialism. The small population fled or was overcome by disease. Today, only 1 percent of Costa Ricans are of indigenous descent and an amazing 98 percent are white.

Here is a brief timeline of major historical events in Costa Rica:

· 1562 - Juan Vasquez founded the first colonial city, Cartago.
· 1821 - Costa Rica, along with the rest of Central America and Mexico, rebelled against Spain.
· 1823 - Civil war develops when some opted to become part of Mexico. They were quickly defeated and sovereignty was proclaimed.
· 1824 – Juan Mora Fernandez is elected as the first head of state.
· 1870 – General Tomas Guardia took control of the government and contributed to many reforms.
· 1948 – The Costa Rican civil war begins after Dr. Rafael Angel Calderon and the United Social Christian Party refuse to turn power over to the winning party after losing the election.
· 1948 - Exile Jose Maria Figueres Ferrer quickly defeated Calderon in a month and became an influential leader. Under his leadership the communist party was banned, banks were nationalized, and presidential terms were established.

Today, Costa Rica is on the upsurge not only politically but economically as well. The country is experiencing a rapidly expanding economy and an influx of interest from investors and businesses that want to put down roots in this exotic and beautiful country. This has all led to Costa Rica being declared the most advanced country in Latin America today.
