(Posted on Dec 3, 2013 at 10:22AM )

los suenos costa ricaCosta Rica is shaped by diversity. Its cultural backdrop is painted in broad strokes, with North American, European, African and other heritages blending together. This creates a unique infusion of traditions, languages and beliefs.

The country’s religious demographics prove that.

Within the Central Pacific region:

44.9% of all Costa Ricans are practicing Roman Catholics.
25.6% of all Costa Ricans are non-practicing Roman Catholics.
13% of all Costa Ricans are Evangelical Christians.
1.3% of all Costa Ricans are Jehovah’s Witnesses.
0.7% of all Costa Ricans are Protestants.
0.16% of all Costa Ricans are Jewish.
0.12% of all Costa Ricans are Mormon.
4.1% of all Costa Ricans are undeclared.

This shows a striking contrast between cultures, reflecting the many immigrants who arrive each year to Los Suenos, Jaco and beyond.

Due to such distinct religions, travelers should be aware of all secular holidays and events, planning their charter services and outdoor tours accordingly.
