When we asked people about diversity in Costa Rica and whether locals are accepting of differences, they said...

"Yes, Costa Rica is a country with diverse cultures and ethnicities. People from all around the world have come to Costa Rica in search of a better life and personal freedom, making Costa Rica a country dripping with culture, history and vibrant flavors. Despite the diversity, Costa Ricans are generally accepting and respectful of differences. The country has a rich culture that is built upon respect for the individual; each person is celebrated for their unique perspectives, experiences and convictions," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Costa Rica.

"You have many ex pats from North America, Europe. There are some Costa Ricans. Main religion is Catholic. There is a Catholic Chirch. A Protestant Church has been started close by," commented one expat who made the move to Playa Jaco, Costa Rica.
