By addressing the social structure of Costa Rica I hope to get a better understanding of the people living there, which will aid in understanding the atmosphere, not literally, of the society. I don't like to feel completely ignorant when traveling to other countries, especially when it comes to the different culture. So in this paper I hope to explore the social structure of the Costa Ricans.
