The country of Costa Rica is slightly smaller than the American state of West Virginia.

If you’re in Costa Rica at seven in the morning on any given day, make it a point to turn on the radio to listen to the country’s national anthem. The Costa Rican national anthem is played on every one of its radio stations at this time!
