Costa Rica has undergone drastic change in recent years, the countries landscape has been changed forever as it scatters with new buildings and developments. The traditional way of life has been replaced with a more fast paced modern life. Many old buildings have been demolished; historic events are rarely remembered as well as many of the people who built Costa Rica. We enjoy collecting photographs of the country’s past so we may better understand where we live today.
