Costa Rica's Government & Political Situation – Ch 2 – Explained in (Almost) 5 Minutes

Costa Rica’s political situation continues to concern anyone watching from abroad. There are ongoing protests related to tax proposals, and the government generally seems to be in disarray.

This is the 2nd chapter of my overview of what’s going on here in Costa Rica. Having lived in Costa Rica for 12 years, I’ve witnessed half a dozen cycles of protests and this is nothing too far out of the ordinary.

In this quick video I wanted to touch on just a few points. First of all, what is currently happening with Costa Rica’s government and why? Second, I discuss a brief bit of Costa Rica’s history to explain the country’s alignment and why CR is very different than many other Central American countries. Finally, I quickly touch on where I feel things will go from here.
