Costa Rica is in Central America located between Nicaragua and Panama. Its borders span 309 kilometers (192 miles) with Nicaragua and 330 kilometers (205 miles) with Panama.

Costa Rica also borders the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, its coastline reaching across 1,290 kilometers (802 miles).

The country has 51,100 square kilometers (19,730 square miles) of land, which is slightly less than the size of West Virginia, including the Isla del Coco (a small island in the Pacific Ocean).

This makes Costa Rica bigger than Maryland (10,455 square miles), Vermont (9,615), New Hampshire (9,283), Massachusetts (8,262), New Jersey (7,790), Hawaii (6,459), Connecticut (5,006), Delaware (2,026) and Rhode Island (1,213)

But, a whole lot smaller than the rest… The State of California alone is more than 8 times bigger than Costa Rica although we have more water but about the same number of Spanish speaking people.
