unnamedeQCOSTARICA – The “Spanish of Costa Rica” is the form of the Spanish language spoken in Costa Rica. Despite its small territorial size, each province of Costa Rica has distinctive features in their speech, accent and phonetics.

The province of Guanacaste (north) has a lot of influence from neighboring Nicaragua, Central Valley (Cartago, San José, Alajuela and Heredia) maintain a common line, but still the sayings, expressions and phonetics vary from province to province and change with education and social class of the speaker.

Are Costa Ricans becoming a monolingual gringoized people? Costa Rica was never an American colony. But in recent years American has creeped into the Spanish of Costa Rica. We like to call it the “Agringamiento” (Gringoization) of Costa Rica Spanish.
