The Arts in Costa Rica

The Ministry of Culture in Costa Rica is very involved in promoting the arts, sponsoring art lessons and Sunday exhibitions in city parks.

There are university art galleries, the Costa Rican Museum of Art, and many smaller galleries scattered throughout San Jose where one can see many different genres of painting being developed by Costa Rican artists.

Faces of Costa Rica

Rainbow Colors of the Costa Rican People

Costa Ricans (Ticos) are gentle, spirited, friendly, educated, polite, and usually kind people. Most seem to like visitors from other countries and treat them quite well. There are, of course, exceptions, but on the whole, you can expect to be made welcome wherever you go.

Ticos are a mix of races and most of Costa Rica's 4 million inhabitants descend from Spanish immigrants; but many families originated in other parts of Europe as well, in addition to, Asia, Africa and other parts of Central America. A large number are fair-skinned, particularly in the Central Valley.  In the outlying areas, more people are mestizos, a mixture of European and Indigenous genetic codes.  On the Caribbean coast you find strong links to African lineage, and in the Talamanca Mountains you can find pure-blooded Indians of various tribes. In Guanacaste Province, you will find dark-skinned Ticos, reflecting their Nicaraguan heritage.
