Costa Rica is a republic in Central America, whose name literally means "Rich Coast" in Spanish. It has a notably high level of human development, and permanently abolished its army in 1949. It has a population of 4,301,712 and speaks Spanish as an official language, making it a part of Latin America. It also recognizes Mekatelyu and Bribri as regional languages. It is bordered by Nicaragua to the north and Panama to the east.

Costa Rica has been visited three times by the race, once during the Family Edition, once during the inaugural Latin American version, and then years later on HaMerotz LaMillion. Additionally, two Costa Rican teams have competed on the race.
