Where is Costa Rica located on a world map?

Sure it's a beautiful country, but where is Costa Rica located on a world map? Not all of us are geography buffs, so let me fill you in.

Located in Central America, Costa Rica is one of the numerous small countries that lie on the isthmus connecting North and South America. Central America extends from the border of southern Mexico down to Panama and its border with Colombia. Geographically it is part of the North American continent and culturally it is part of Latin America.

Regarding specific neighboring countries, Costa Rica's location is South of Nicaragua and north of Panama. The western flank of the country is bordered by the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea borders the eastern side.

But where is Costa Rica in terms of longitude and latitude?

The country is located around the latitude and longitude of 10° 00' N, 84° 00' W. This places it in the North Western hemisphere within the latitudinal belt known as the Tropics, which accounts for the warm, tropical weather. In other words, Costa Rica is located in paradise ;-)
