Throughout the world, the average life expectancy is 71 years of age (70 for males and 72 for females).

Costa Rica at a Glance
Costa Rica is one of the oldest democracies in the Americas. It is a country proud of its heritage and tradition of negotiation over confrontation, social development over military spending and tolerance over hostility.
It is the home to many international organizations such as the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, the University for Peace of the United Nations and the Earth Council.
In 1502, on his fourth and last voyage to the New World, Christopher Columbus made the first European landfall in the area.
Costa Rica is ranked as the 15th strongest democracy in the world and the second in Latin America only after Uruguay (Universität Würzburg, 2020).
This is, for me, one of the main reasons our country is an example for Central America on protecting human rights, even though the system is still failing for so many people but, at least leaving by the principles of democracy is what have helped Costa Rica to be where it is right now.
