Costa Rica Family Life

Family Structure

Costa Ricans greatly value family tradition and their heritage. Most Costa Rican families only live with their immediate families, however some families prefer to live with their extended families, who commonly live in rural areas. Larger families are more tight-knit, and spend lots of time together. Although smaller families don't usually spend as much time together, all families usually gather on Sundays.
