Racism is illegal in Costa Rica, and I personally have never encountered it. In this multi ethnic democratic society you'll find an endless variety of religions, minorities and skin-colours peacefully living and working next to each other. In the very past, the African or black population was not allowed to leave a certain area of Limón. For that reason they are more numerous there, but are equally accepted anywhere else.
